Sat 24th JUNE - KINGS LYNN MRC, This is the last exhibition for this Lincoln, a bigger and better Mk2 is in the build as you read this, complete with loco shed and working roundhouse




 
Lincoln, is my second foray into Z gauge railways after my American California Coast (2008)
 
I have followed American railways for many years, and after looking at one of the new AZL GP38-2 locos in Z scale I was hooked for the second time.
 
I wanted to show what could be achieved In Z scale on 1 board so the layout is a single track line somewhere on the Milwaukee road, running short freights.
 
Lincoln is 55” long x 26” deep (7’ x 5’ required at exhibitions) is DC with track by Rokuhan, control by Varipulse and Loco sound by kato.
I operate the layout from the right hand end as you view the layout from the front.
