note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

Ztrack Page


The Magazine for Z Scale Model Railroading

Z-Scale is only 1:220,
with rails only ¼" (6.5mm) apart!
It is about 2 times smaller than HO!

This is a wee bit hard to believe, but doing a search on HotBot for
"Ztrack" ca. 1998 yielded exactly 220 hits!


{unofficial - my (the Webmaster's) comments in brackets - and,
since it is no longer the main page for Ztrack,
I felt freer to make my little comments -
and DID!}

DISCLAIMER - Ztrack Magazine is not responsible for my comments nor for the reviews presented herein.

Ztrack NOW has its own separate Website,
maintained by Editor Rob Kluz
and hosted by Rob Albriton,
with issue summary information, lots of photos,
products, links, and much more
{and without my snide remarks};
click HERE to go there.

It features news and events in the world of Z-scale with photos and plans, as well as product reviews, a classified marketplace, and ads from leading manufacturers and distributors of Z-scale equipment.

[Ztrak is the name of a line of zero-turning-radius riding lawn mowers
made by that renowned maker of green and yellow tractors, John Deere.]

[Since there is now an official home page, I did not duplicate the entire masthead,
 but I tried to maintain an up-to-date list of regional contacts and such
but all that has now been deleted as outdated.]

apologia - This page was intended to have been posted on 19 Nov 2019 but somehow that never happened.  My apologies to anyone inconvenienced by any non-working links to this page (or succeeding pages).

Back issues of Ztrack then currently available were listed in each issue but have been removed from these reviews and from this site.

{The purported limitations on HTML page size had forced me to create Continuation Page 0, et seq.}


I stopped reviewing when I inadvertently let my subscription lapse and a certain editor didn't howl about it!  Not having been overwhelmed with requests, I left it this way, but each succeeding issue is more fabulous than the preceding ones.  These reviews are not even vaguely current, so I moved them off this page to a new intermediate page, Ztrack Courtesy Continuation Page 0 on 05 Oct 2008.
