Z scale trains are model electric trains for the 21st century. Built at an outstanding 1/220 scale, allows the model train enthusiast to construct an outstanding layout in a limited amount of surface area. This is ideal for people with smaller houses or apartments. These locomotives and rolling stock are the smallest widely sold electric model trains, but the attention to detail and fine intricate finish rivals any other scale of model train. The Marklin Company was first to offer this scale of train in 1972. Today Markiln, Micro-Trains Line (MTL), American Z line, Full Throttle, and many others offer electric model trains in this scale. N Scale Architect offers excellent Z scale model buildings and other accessories in the 1/220 scale. Here at Trains and Toy Soldiers, we are proud to feature Micro-Trains Line. Micro-Trains Line’s high quality and attention to detail are proof that excellent products are still made in the United States of America. While Z scale railroad modelers love their trains, they will warn the novice that the tracks must be kept clean and free of dust to ensure proper operations. The growing popularity of z scale trains has lead to an increase in regional and national layout design contests. Many of these layouts defy belief with their attention to the most minute detail and the vast vistas that can be created because of the scale. Trains and Toy Soldiers is committed to bringing the electric model trains enthusiast the finest locomotives, rolling stock, track, building and other accessories.
