Ran the Z yesterday, after a few mods. Found the motor in the rear car was running slower than the one in the locomotive, so I yanked it out and it ran fine. Sorta noisey in the gearboxes, but they have been re-lubed, maybe after a bit more running it will quiet down some, or maybe I won't need a sound system!  Need to get the lights back in, getting new ones from Jim Hinds here:  http://www.richmondcontrols.com/   He has some neat stuff, MARS lights/etc, all LED's. Two sizes of them also.

Jim,
ON my work on it, I decided it would be easy to battery/rc it. Would do as you do and have the center car not screwed to the frame, just sitting on it, make for easy access to the innards that way. May do it, for Marty's. Could use my Aristo TE pretty easily.

Look great Jerry. It looks as though you spaced the center car up from the trucks, all the rooflines seem to line up nice now.

Regards, Greg

I agree the gear box noise seems to fit. If I was going to the trouble to R/C I'd have to have a horn to blow for the crossings. Looks great. One of my favorite passenger trains.
