In Ohio, we often hear the phrase, “Summer is here, but you wouldn’t know it”. Well for us in the Ztrack office, we aren’t talking about the weather. We are talking about our scale. As I write this, we have moved into June. Summer is here, the weather has broken, pools have opened, flowers are blooming and typically model railroaders climb out of the basement and head outdoors.
This year is quite different. The March into April slowdown in business did not happen. As we moved from May into June, we are still seeing Z scalers playing with their train in record numbers. The Ztrack office is cranking with record breaking shipments coming from our partners: American Z Line, Rokuhan, Archistories and others.
Ann, our quality control expert, is burning long hours watching locomotives go in circles. The sound of tape guns have drowned out the sounds of summer. We are now getting evil looks from our USPS, FedEx and DHL drivers who are constantly picking up packages.
This is an unprecedented time in Z scale. We are so excited to watch the scale evolve and become a year round hobby. Trust me when I say there are no complaints here. I only ask for some patience this summer. Orders may take a little longer to get to our dealers and customers. It is summer and vacations are planned as well as time out of the office. No matter how much I love Z scale, I am still all about a good craft beer and reading a book with my feet in the sand.
With that, have a great summer! For our subscribers, we have included a special summer activity with this issue of Ztrack. Enjoy!

Ztrack Magazine is now available in print and digital formats for subscriptions and back issues. We've found that instead of getting their Ztrack through the USPS, many folks like the convenience of the universal PDF digital format. Of course, we still print so you can choose whatever works best for you!
