I predict many more predictions that will not come true.

For example:  C40-8's from Atlas

I predict we'll all be revealed as lousy prognosticators - except for John, because he owns RW...  ;D ;D ;D

Dave will come out with an M1 before PCM. 

The next issue of the LifeLike 2-8-8-2 will be ripped to shreds on the A-baord because it needs to be tweeked to run as some expect.  Those who tweek the unit will be railed upon until they get done and then will be told they should start their own company. :P

The "Walthers 0-8-0 in person" thread will be off the front page of the Atlas forum for more than a week. (maybe)

I might read the "Walthers 0-8-0 in Person," thread.

I might acutally finish a project.

I predict that 2008 will be better than 2007 in many ways.  I'm just not sure which...

I predict I will actually disign and start a layout instead of just talking about it. I also predict I will stay with N scale.

Dave has come out with an M-1, see the A-Board.

And I must state that it is a very nicely done M-1.

I could predict several things, but here is one based on a minimum of experience:

The B-mann USRA heavy 4-8-2 will displace the Kato mikado as the measuring rod by which we judge all N scale steam.

Mine is undergoing break-in, but my first impressions are very good.  It combines several good elements of the various manufacturers:  split frame (various), considerable weight (MP), good gearing (B-mann and MP), DCC already there (a first, unless Athearn has done it in their challenger, which I do not own), traction tyres (B-mann, MDC/Athearn), a flywheel (Kato and Athearn/MDC), all wheels live needlepoint axle pickup on the tender (Kato, B-mann), and good quality control (Kato, Atlas).
