When you think of building any train layout, you think of adding water, or contour of some sort that will ultimately require a bridge. If you are looking for z scale bridges, Micron Art offers a couple of really nice options. The Pratt Truss Z Scale Bridges they offer are available in a medium version, spanning a scale 154′ and a long version spanning a scale 224′. Both z scale bridges follow standard prototype bridge building techniques making them a viable detail in many applications. Designed per the “Easybrass” philosophy. Most of the rods and shapes on the Pratt Truss Bridge are combined making for faster assembly than you may assume for such a complex bridge design. The bridge uses brass of a heavier gauge than what is normal used and can be set up to use a cateneray if you desire. These bridges really are works of art, you will be proud to display. The smaller size looks very nice set up in multiple sections as showed in the picture above. Micron Art also offers a girder bridge that measures a scale 79′. The bridge features cast & riveted iron fittings, rivet plates. The last of the z scale bridges that Micron Art offers is actually a signal bridge designed to go over tracks. Again, and I say this a lot when I see these small brass kits, this kit really is a work of art! Z scale has really come along way and even the smallest of details can now be produced through laser cutting and photo etching. With the huge amount of running that can be achieved in such a small area with these trains, it is easy to see why z gauge is growing so quickly.

Just released the new AZL z scale Southern Pacific GP-9 locomotive in bloody nose paint scheme. The SP GP-9 locomotive features details specific to the prototype including long range tanks. The locomotive features directional lighting, powerful can motor, auto latch couplers, brass handrails, traction tires, separately applied details, prototype specific details and easily upgrades to DCC . The recommended Digitrax decoder is the DZ123Z0 and can be installed with no wiring or soldering. Included optional pilot packed away under the tray if you so desire. The GP-9 locomotive was widely used across North America and was produces from 1954 to 1963. I found the available road numbers, 3004, 3005, 3006 and 3007 as accurate listed on the roster at espee.railnet.net . I like the fact that more and more of the z scale locomotives including the AZL Southern Pacific GP-9 are so easy to set up with DCC, especially when no soldering is necessary. Soldering on such small parts always make me nervous. This is the second new locomotive added to the AZL line this month and there are more to com!
