FR Freudenreich Feinwerktechnik Fine Detail Z Scale

I remember growing up paging through Model Railroader magazines in awe at the HO and O Scale brass locomotives and cars.  I couldn’t believe the detail packed into a small replica.  40 years later, I come across the Freudenreich Feinwerktechnik or FR Z scale models.  Talk about true works of art in 220 scale!  Most of the FR Z scale line is done in European models but there are some very beautiful US examples as well.  In addition, if you can find them, FR offered a box cab in z scale!   Like so many desirable z scale cars and locomotives, your best chance of finding ZR z scale is in the aftermarket, and yes that means ebay.  Some people like ebay, some don’t, but when you find what you have been searching for, you tend to appreciate it a little more.  The FR z scale cars are packed in a very nice hard case and most of them are treated very well through their life so when you find them, they are usually in very nice shape.

Some of the FR z scale U.S. cars are fairly popular road names, B&O, D&RGW, Milwaukee Road, Southern Pacific and more.  But you will find some lesser known or modeled roads like Alaska RR.  You will have to work a little harder to find some of them.  Many are single cars but you will also find them in two car sets as pictured above.

Below are just a few of what is currently available on ebay, Click here here for the full list.  Again if you are looking for FR z scale in U.S. cars you will have to scroll through a little bit, but they cars are worth the hunt!
