Ztrack Magazine is excited to announce our latest line, Ztrack Public Service Works. ZPSW is a line of Z scale accessories designed for layouts. Our goal is to provide customers with a wide variety of options and choices, including kits and already built structures. Like the public service works of the 1930s, Ztrack also looks to combine the talents of many individuals and companies into a collective in order to put out the best products available.

So the efforts of individuals are collected and reproduced for sale by Ztrack Magazine.  Great idea!

Hmmmm.... Z-scale appears to be morphing into a new socio-political system... 

It's time for N-scalers to wake up and join together to halt the Z-Peril - (and of course preserve the purity of our bodily fluids...)

Humm there was no "already built" option when I started the Berkshire.

Oh, some men from the government will be over today to take your Berk and make measurements for a future release.

Should I hide the Marklin 2-10-2 that currently sits in front of me in 100 pieces.  :-X

The Z scalers on Trainboard really do seem to be starting their own socio-political system. There's another thread on theiir proclaiming their Great Society with phrases being thrown around like "state of the art" and "modelers scale" etc.  Think someone even had a list of items on display at a recent show and commented that every square inch was filled with that state of the art equipment.  Yeah, like wide body GP's and a mal-proportioned SW-1? 

They cheer loudly, but I think Chris has done the only truely "state of the art" modeling.  As far as manufacturers, AZL seems to be trying to keep the proportions in check, but other companies are treating the scale like the starved group of modelers that it is, and feeding them crap just because they'll put up with it.  Is there no shame?
