Reread #109674 from Tom Houle on how he makes wood Z material look like steel. Admittedly Tom works in O scale but still..

There are a couple of problems with Northeastern Zs. They measure 3/64",
which is a little too big in HO, and it's hard to make wood look like steel.
I don't know if the technology is developed enough to produce styrene Zs,
but HO scale Zs would be a nice addition to a fine product line.

It's been suggested that it would be nice if Evergreen made hat section.
anyone supply drawings and/or dimensions for this?

I wonder also how standardized hat section was. Any opinions?

Are there other "special shapes" that Evergreen could produce that would be
