Z Central Station Private Messaging
ZCS always had the ability to allow private messaging between members but now it is functional for you to use. When you log in you will notice a PM Notifier just under the search box on every ZCS web page. When you go to your profile page you will notice several new PM modules. Here is where you can have ZCS email you when you receive a new PM, compose a PM to another ZCS member by using their screen name. You can also review sent, received, and deleted private messages.
Do you… know your LocoZ? Some locomotives are weathered, custom painted, custom detailed, or they are just as you bought it. Either way here is your chance to display your profound knowledge of Z scale locomotives or learn more about some of the locomotives that are available in Z.
Z Central Station’s “Do you know your LocoZ” contest starts now and ends Friday midnight PST, August 16th, 2013. The entry with the most correctly guessed locomotives is the winner. In case of multiple winners a random drawing will determine the final winner. Mail your entry to “Know your LocoZ” at email@example.com. The winning entry prize is having two (2) pieces of your rolling stock weathered by Joseph Lavender. You can have two freight cars (sorry no locomotives) lightly weathered, moderately weathered, heavily weathered, or use a prototypical photo for personalized weathering.
