Locomotives The motive power of name trains is as important as the passenger consist. Except for the WP FP7s, AZL offers all designated locomotives used on the original California Zephyr. CB&Q: F3s and E7s (released this month!) D&RGW: F3s and PAs WP: F3s Occasional use of F7s happened on the D&RGW, but they were not designated to the Zephyr. We still have not produced the single black stripe D&RGW locomotives, but we have those in mind for future production runs.
Passenger Car Consist As mentioned in earlier correspondence, the CZ had 6 complete train sets. AZL initially produced 4. And if I am not mistaken, we have released three so far.
Note: For Rob and I, this was our first true name train. The great response to the CZ has led to the AZL ATSF Super Chief, the ATSF El Capitan and the UP City of Los Angeles. And now we are working on the SP Coast Daylight! We will not stop at that and promise to keep Z scalers happy!
