Z Scale

2 - 4' x 8' sections

Requires Cadrail 10.0.2

Here is a 3d scale model of the famous Animas River Highline section of the D&RG near Durango, CO. The layout has two 4' x 8' sections and is using Z scale track.

The drawing was made by tracing a USGS topographic map of the area. Cadrail 10.0.2 Figure Terrain was used for the landscape. Trees are drawn using the new Tree Symbols that automatically fit the terrain elevation.

It took the author approximately 20 hours to make this drawing using Cadrail 10.0.2.
