Gauge Z at Mannheim: The American dream in Z


The model railway in Z gauge demonstrates in Mannheim that it can easily compete with really big model railway layouts. With their large US segment and module layout by US Z Lines Europe, the railroaders show how to build large and true-to-original model railways in this small gauge. Long trains with multiple engines (consists) are a firm favourite with modellers, and their superbly designed modules bring the "American dream" to the show. A Big Boy and a Challenger with sound effects will be among the engines circling the tracks, demonstrating just what can be done in gauge Z. 

Operator: Z-Freunde International, Peter Simon, 95239 Zell, Germany
Size of layout: 22 x 6 metres
