Bridge Abutments
#ZTR-100   Cut Stone Abutments
• Released July 2018
• Undecorated Cut Stone Bridge Abutment Kit
• Includes one pair
      $20.00 retail ea. • $16.00
Product information:
Our castings come in their natural gray color. These pieces are cast using a high strength modified gypsum and then oven cured for maximum strength. We suggest applying a light coat of flat white spray primer to act as a sealing coat to your model. By applying a light coat of primer before you add your colors and weathering, you insure yourself an even and stable color "canvas" for your paint, washed and weathering.

Ztrains cast accessories come in their natural gray gypsum color.
Designed around the Micro-Trains Line through girder bridge, our cut stone abutment set shows its age beautifully! The face texture of the stone is taken from an actual slate surface for added realism. The large cut stones are scale accurate and aged to show years of facing the elements.
The MTL bridge has a thin molded plate on each corner of the bridge representing a bridge shoe. We’ve designed our abutment taking this bridge shoe into account so the connecting track pieces sit flat with a slight bridge "stop" for easier bridge placement.
Details:
Height 1: From base to "shelf", the MTL bridge sits on, the height is 1.45"

This aged concrete abutment set has put in lots of work over the years and will soon need to be repaired or replaced. In the meantime, it would make a great addition to your layout or diorama as a working abutment or as an abandoned piece to add history to your scene.
We began by laying scale accurate forming boards over this classic abutment design. Then came time for aging in the way of cracks, erosion and lots of exposure to the elements! Each abutment in this set has its own unique aged pattern and patched areas to add to the overall realism.
Details:

Height 1: From the base to the "lower shelf", 1.25"
Height 2: From the base to the "upper shelf", 1.75"

Product information:
This 3-piece portal set includes two unique tunnel liners that sit flush to the rear of the portal and extend 2.5" beyond the portal face. We use natural rock casts to create these pieces and to have them join with minimal visible seams. The tunnel liners have a flat bottom and ends to form a simple butt joint with the rear of the portal.
We wanted to give this piece an older look but of course, many modern railroads still travel through portals just like this. If you'd like to run a double stack intermodal car through, once you attach the tunnel liners to the portal face just shim the entire piece up by .020" or so.
Details:

Portal Clearance: 1.5" in the center
Tunnel Liners: 1.75" high and 2.5" long

Product information:
Nothing like a loading ramp and freight platform to add a little character to any scene! This ramp and platform set will work nicely in a team track setting or in one of my favorites, an abandoned spur setting.
The 3D brickwork is from Monster Modelworks and is laser engraved so we actually have bricks of different heights, nicely simulating aged brick.
The tops of the ramp and platform have been given a slightly rough and patched look, you can give it a gray color wash to simulate concrete, paint it flat black for asphalt or add you own soil for a very rural look. Since the ramp and platform are separate pieces, you can arrange them to suit your scene.
Details:

Ramp: 3" Long, .6" Wide, .34" High
Platform: 1.45" Long, .9" Wide, .34" High
Aged Concrete Retaining Walls
#ZTR-160   Aged Concrete Retaining Walls

Product information:
This pair of retaining walls makes for a nice accent next to a portal or just by themselves against a hill. For an interesting twist, you could add these next to a cut where a tunnel portal used to be! Touches like this can add a real feel of age and history to a scene, even when you don’t have a lot of free space on a layout.
Using scale accurate forming boards, broken and cracked, allows for easier weathering using paint washes and weathering powders.
Details:

Wall 1: 1.75" High, 2.25" Wide
Wall 2: 1.75" High, 1.5" Wide

Product information:
We love LEDs in Z scale, but they can be just a bit fiddly to hook up. Here's an all-in-the-package designed to work with Rokuhan Controllers, Rokuhan Accessory Switches and the Rokuhan A016 Accessory Power Terminal.
Note:
Alcohol wipes for cleaning non-porous surfaces prior to applying LEDs / wire clips. Not needed if applying the foam pads to wood or other porous surfaces.
Product information:
5 surface mount LEDs with Scotch-brand double sided foam squares applied. Each LED has a 2’ length of custom twisted wire, stripped at the ends, for easier installation into the Quick Connect plug. We really like this wire as it’s easy to handle, is very flexible and it tends to hold its shape.
Quick Connect plug with a Rokuhan A016 compatible plug attached. A #4 screw is included if you’d like to permanently attach the Quick Connect plug to the underside of your layout. These are simple but very effective little wire holders.
15 foam-backed adhesive wire clips. These can help in making your wires just a bit more organized under the layout. The double stick foam on these clips is not as aggressive as the Scotch double sided foam we use on the lights, but these will hold in place if applied to a clean, non-porous surface.

• Standalone LED Power Supply & Rokuhan Compatible Cable
      $24.17 retail ea. • $19.34
Product information:
The Ztrains ZTR-250 can come in very handy if you want to run a large number of LEDs, or want to set up separate lighting zones without taxing the accessory port output of your Rokuhan controller.
Product information:
The Ztrains ZTR-250 will give you a dedicated 1 amp power source for your LEDs and other 12VDC accessory needs. The ZTR-250 is perfect for plugging in directly to the 5-connector Rokuhan A016 or the all-new, enclosed 12-connector Ztrains ZTR-251.
Note:
A good rule of thumb here is a typical white LED will draw roughly 20mA to 30mA, so this power supply can power up to 50 LEDs. We suggested keeping it between 40 and 50 LEDs to give the power supply a bit of headroom.

Product information:
The Ztrains ZTR-251 can come in very handy if you want to run a large number of LEDs.
Includes 12-Output Ports for twelve LED Plugs.
Product information:
This distribution box provides a tidy and secure way to plug in 12 of your single LEDs, or combined with the Ztrains LED kits, when powered from either a Rokuhan controller accessory port, or from the Ztrains ZTR-250 Standalone LED Power Supply. With 6 jacks per side, this box gives your plugs a secure press-fit.
Note:
Most model train power supplies are rated at 12VDC, 1A. This means they can power between 40 and 50 LEDs each (not including any power the trains themselves draw) when using the Rokuhan controller accessory port. If you’re going to be using more LEDs than this, you can pick up the Ztrains ZTR-250 Standalone LED Power Supply to light up another 40 or 50 LEDs!

Product information:
Many Z scale kits and buildings come with a hole in the base to fit a 5mm LED. We like to use diffused LEDs for lighting, as the diffused LEDs throw a much softer light and don't create harsh shadows. You get a more even and natural glow with these diffused lights. Just like our surface mount LEDs, installation is quick and easy!
Note:
Warm white LEDs shown in these photos.
Product information:

Here's an interesting, specialized little LED, the Ztrains Awfully Small Single LED!
At just 1mm at its widest measurement, these LEDs are awfully small even by Z scale standards! A little extra care is called for when handling the twisted copper wire this LED is attached to. We’ve made hook-up to the Rokuhan A016 or the Ztrains ZTR-251 Accessory Distribution Box very simple.
Note:

Product information:
Few things bring Z scale scenes to life like street lights, and we’ve just made it easier than ever to bring them to your layout! We solder, twist and heat shrink the extra-fine wires from these lights to our own custom twisted insulated wire. The result is a light fixture that is ready to install.
Each light fixture comes with its own Quick Connect wire connector with an inline resistor installed, making these lights become a heck of a lot easier to work with. We also test all lights after our wire assembly is completed.
By including the appropriate resistor on the Quick Connect wire assembly rather than the wire connected to the light, you can drill a much smaller hole in your layout, and the bases of the street lights then cover that hole for a slicker appearance. A 3/32" drill bit is suggested, then carefully feed the light’s wire down the hole, connect to the Quick Connect, and plug it in to the Rokuhan A016 or our own Ztrains ZTR-251.
Product information:
3 single head streetlights. Each light has a 2’ length of custom twisted wire, stripped at the ends, for easier installation into the Quick Connect plug. We really like this wire as it’s easy to handle, is very flexible and it tends to hold its shape.

The Ztrains Grassinator
#ZTR-400   The Ztrains Grassinator
• Released January 2019
• Ztrains Grassinator
• 12VDC power supply
      $138.33 retail ea. • $110.66
Product information:
The Grassinator™ is a static grass applicator designed to help you get the best possible results when applying static grass to your scenic projects. We’ve included the 12VDC power supply, a power extension cable and a selection of lids for more precise grass application and to make your static grass experience as much fun as it should be!
We've powered the Grassinator™ with the included 12VDC power adapter rather than with a 9VDC battery because it provides maximum consistent power without worrying how much juice your battery has left. You don’t want to be working with a weakened power source when applying static grass!
To make sure you have the freedom to move around when grassing, we’ve also included a 10’ extension cable for your 12V DC adapter’s 3’ long cable. This gives you a total of 13’ of freedom from wall wart to Grassinator™.
The alligator clip on the Grassinator™ may be attached to the included potter’s needle. We find this potter’s needle to be a great choice over a regular nail as it’s easy to handle (because it has a handle), it has a sharp point so it more easily sticks in to your scenery, and it leaves a smaller hole when removing it from your newly grassed area.
Product Info:






Ztrains Grassinator       • 12VDC power supply
10’ power supply extension cable
Potter’s needle (instead of using a nail)
Cork for needle tip storage
Lid with mesh screen

Additional Product Details:
We use Schedule 40 PVC in our construction. This isn’t your typical home center PVC, this is what’s known as furniture grade PVC and it’s the same material used to build worktables, bike racks and furniture.

Product information:
This is a simple 2-piece set cast in white resin. Assembly is quick and easy with a thin bead of epoxy. This design is based loosely on the great concrete snow sheds of the Donner Pass / Truckee, California area. Our shed has lots of character with the concrete being cracked, repaired and distressed from the elements... all cast into each shed!
Limited Run         Sold out!
Product information:
Our resin snow shed is a fine accessory to add to any Z scale mountain scene if you're modeling the snowy or the summer season.
With so much surface detail built in, weathering is easy. Placement is easy too, just place the open side of the shed next to your mountain or hill and you're all set for the heavy snows. If you're modeling a non-snow scene, you can add rock debris and soil to the top of the shed for a convincing look.
We take care of all the flash removal from these two pieces here in our shop and give these two pieces a thorough washing to remove any mold release. We also apply a coat of Dupli-Color automotive adhesion promoter to make painting and weathering easier! All you need to do is to epoxy the two pieces together, paint and weather!
