Atlas release prediction posts

I was over on the Atlas site today and for the second month in a row I noticed the absence of the "what will Atlas release next month?" speculation thread that usually appeared around the 30th of the month. Are we used to the monthly releases now, or dont we care anymore? :P
You`ll never find a Philly cheese steak on a menu in Philadelphia. It`s called a cheesesteak and we all know where it`s from...

interesting, I'd expect one now, since the quarterly update is overdue ...

Perhaps the readers that started that in the past have become bored and moved on. Or, maybe they're from the Northeast and attend the Springfield show and figure they'll see it all there the end of this month...

Possibly they even deduced they're just wasting bandwidth even asking.  ;)

Does the 10% increase meaning they're giving us 10% more? Like separate grab irons on all rolling stock from now on? Or does it mean they're super-sizing their N scale offerings, and all will be Japanese 1:144 from now on?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I look at the cost of fuel and what our company is paying to keep gas in our fleet. I can't blame A-Co for raising their prices.

Boy, I sure wish I could slap 10% across the board and remain in business  :P

They gotta raise prices sometime. Their costs are certainly not static.

If China ever truly floats the Yuan look out!

There are a lot of pre ordered stuff coming up for delivery soon , at least by me . Maybe folks are wishing for temptations not to be served up . They are afraid to ask .
