Wiggy had a blurb on his eStore dated 8/18 that said a "major announcement" would be forthcoming this week. He has since removed it.

If you read carefully, you'll see references to "wiggy". They are referring to Wig-Wag Trains, George & Debra.  There was a "teasing" announcement on the website, later removed. Basically an announcement of a possible announcement that just might be announced. No specifics. Might have even been a hacker.  :-X

I thought that was part of his website design?

Maybe the big announcement is PCM getting "out" of N scale!

They'd have to enter before they can leave  ;)

There should be a three release minimum to qualify as an N scale Mfg.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

No, that's not the big announcement. I have a friend who's pretty well connected in the model train mfg world, and the big announcement is from MTL. They're gonna be releasing a system to restore "genuine" factory air to previously opened jewel cases.

 ;)  :D  ;D  :P
