Hello All, I am new to this forum, and to Z scale. I am not totally new to model trains, as my father has been building and collecting trains since before I was born. When I was in grade school, my brother and I created a rough layout on particle board and played with my fathers hand built brass trains! Much to his chagrin. My favorite is the CNJ Camelbacks. Well about the time Z scale started to appear on these shores, my father got involved with a group of individuals who started up Rogue Locomotive Works. My fathers involvement was helping to develop masters for casting and molding. He ended up creating masters in metal and plastic of steam and diesel. I even helped him by creating silicone molds for hoppers and passenger cars. Recently I became interested in a local railroad, and decided to work in Z scale. My father was happy to hear I was interested and we went thru his collection of Z scale. Now most of what he created is after the era I am focusing on, so I talked him into letting them go. His collection includes every model train scale, G to Z. As well as live steam. So I don't think he'll miss some Z. PRR and LIRR G5 If any of you are interested, there are a few master steam pieces I will place in the swap section.
