Alaska Railroad Z Scale

Alaska Z Scale CabooseAlaska Railroad Z Scale.  The Alaska Railroad can trace it’s roots all the way back to early 1900’s with the Alaska Central Road.  While z scale can only trace it’s roots to Marklin back in 1972, the Alaska Railroad  does have it’s representation in z scale.  You may selection to be some what limited when it comes to a locomotive for the Alaska Railroad in z scale, you will find a few here and there.  Every once and a while you will find a custom painted unit as well.   The most common locomotive you will find is from Marklin, an ABA set.  Micro Trains offered a F-7 A unit in the past a well.  FR made a special run Marklin Mikado painted for the Alaskan Railroad in z scale along with a couple of cars and a caboose.  Some time ago I saw an AZL E-8 custom painted as well, very pretty.

As for rolling stock things open up a bit more with Marklin offering a few different Alaska sets in z scale.  Cars available included tankers, gondolas, box cars and a caboose.  MTL offered a few different cars as well.  Full Throttle (one of my favorite manufactures) had sets available as well.   Likely the hardest to find is the handcrafted FR Alaska cars.  When you find them, they will be spendy!  Micro trains did offer Alaska passenger cars in z scale that come up for sale every now and then.   I would love to have the entire MTL set.

There you have it.  If you want to model the Alaska RR in z scale, you have some basics to start with that offer a basic representation of the railway.  If you want to try your hand at custom painting, the sky is the limit.  Below you will find a few examples of what is currently available on ebay for the Alaska Railroad in z scale, or you can  .
