If you model Southern Pacific in z scale, your locomotive selection continues to grow thanks to AZL. Currently AZL offers 4 scale locomotives in a total of 15 different road numbers. You have the latest SP locomotive, the SD70M in 4 road numbers, the GP-9 Locomotive in z scale with 4 different road numbers, the GP-30 with 3 road numbers and finally the GP38-2 available in 4 different road numbers. This collection of z scale Southern Pacific locomotives starts with a street price of around $100 on the GP38-2 to about $190 on the SD70M. While the GP38-2 is considered an entry level z scale locomotive, it is a great unit for the money. Micron Art makes a very nice detail kit for the unit as well. All 4 locomotives are DCC ready and all but the GP30 have drop in decoders available from Digitrax. In addition to the locomotives, you can also find a nice selection of z scale passenger cars, cabooses and freight cars for the Southern Pacific in our store at Zgauge.Com.
Z scale selection continues to grow and now if you favor the C&NW line, you will be pleased to see the new release from AZL of these Z scale Chicago & Northwestern passengers cars. All told there is a total of 23 cars available when you count the different road numbers and names that are offered. These cars are the heavyweights very well done in the classic C&NW yellow and green. Passenger cars are a favorite of most any modeler and adding this complete line of cars to z scale is just a great addition. Body styles include a variety of sleepers, parlor cars, paired coaches, diner cars, baggage cars, mail cars and of course an observation car as well. I haven’t seen a good choice for pulling the cars yet, hopefully there is something on the horizon to head up these beauties.
