We had a track project going until Atlas did their announcement and release. If Atlas expands their range, Z scale should be well covered with Marklin, Rokuhan, Atlas, Peco, Micro-Trains and Fast Tracks all offering tracks. On top of that several individuals are offering custom built switches. So, AZL does not have any track in development at this time.
