Little or No Traction in Z was created by Socalz44
Friends came across this example of traction and thought it would be an inspiration to some, as we have no traction in North American Z as yet. Enjoy. Cheers, Jim CCRR:)

The catenary would surely be a little challenging.

Since 3 years, I am assembling all available drawings to do one myself.
Montreal had quite a huge operation in the old days, and they had quite some nice models of electric city trams.

Probably on my project list no.4 or 6. Had bought a motorize track cleaner to do just that, to make it accept a north American frame.

There are some Z scale European trams:

But no catenary yet, that I know of. Nor specifically Z scale tram tracks.

Harald at FR is developing a Swiss catanary. I'm sure it could be modified for trolley/tram use.
