Welcome to the ZMT which is a shortline based on the MKT. The ZMT connects the Santa FE and BN in the towns of Zane and Makayla. It services several industries served by team track and dedicated spurs. The MKT has a new $500,000 intermodal yard which can service both containes and trailers. They currently have 2 SW1500s, one of which has been rebuilt with a U25 cab after a rock slide at Bobpant's tunnel, a GP9 with a weak diesel which will soon be replaced with an F7 diesel engine, an ex SantaFe F7b (powered), an RS3 which doesn't run and is used as a slug, and a GP38 purchased from BN. They are currently waiting for a CF-7 to be delivered and repainted. The roster also includes 3 F-7a which are being used for spare parts. We recently got a brass FT shell which was repowered with an Athearns' chassis and painted black. It will be used for display and Railfan Rides. Enough pretend history. Also see the proto link for real photos of real rail equipment.
