Hard To Find Full Throttle Z Scale

William Dean Wright continues to put out very collectible 2 and 4 cars sets of z scale cars under the Full Throttle brand.  I just love these sets for a few different reasons.  First the subject matter.  You will find your standard big road names but also a large variety of smaller roads, heritage packs and even some very interesting tribute cars to the old Tyco “brown box cars” like Dutch Cleanser, Hollwyood Candy and more.  Full Throttle Z Scale offers a variety of hoppers, a series of cylndrical hoppers, wood chip chars and small reefers.  Second thing you will notice about the Full Throttle is the quality.  These truly are nice quality cars and they sell at a very fair price.  Third, how collectible they are.  The packaging is top notch with colorful detailed info about the cars wrapped up in a nice hard, stackable case.

If you could find any complaint with the Full Throttle z scale line is that they are usually limited run.  I am a dealer and many times I have sold out my allotment even before the cars reach my front steps!  So, that is where the secondary market comes in.  Ebay is your best bet for the secondary market on Full Throttle Z scale items.  Fortunately most of these cars have a very easy life and you will find them in very nice condition.  As for pricing……..well that is all over the place.  Some of the more desirable sets to find are the FT2040 Chessie Moonshine cars, the Ford FTCOL37 set, FTCOL 8 Blue Coal Set  (or anything Blue Coal) Waddell sets or the Chessie repaints.  I know there are many more on your wish list!  Below are just a few active listings, click here to see what is currently available on ebay.

While you may have a hard time finding period correct cars to pull with the Marklin Mini Club 88035 Denver & Rio Grande Western 2-6-0 steam locomotive, you won’t have a hard time liking it.  This just another example of a wonderful little Marklin  steam locomotive.  With a five pole motor and the small radius capacity of the D&RGW Marklin locomotive, it can do well on even on small table top layouts.  While the locomotive has been out of production for some time, you can still find the Marklin Mini Club 88035 D&RGW 2-6-0 Steam locomotive on the aftermarket.  They seem to hold there value quite nicely though so keep an sharp eye for a good buy.  Check below to see what is currently available.  And by the way, you could argue the Marklin 88035 2-6-0 a great little excursion train or display locomotive for a train museum on your layout!
