ha! you're probably right.

maybe someone else will announce something interesting ... I mean, Atlas hasn't announced any new locos since what? 2008?

Hm.... I predict that Walthers will focus their energy on the R/C market, Kato will get into Japanese O scale and Intermountain will produce the first North American freight car in T scale, a Canadian grain hopper with no CP potash version.

I also expect that Atlas will finally let us know they 'dun goofed and canceled the coil car.

if we get the Atlas quarterly soon and Daniel's "predictions" hold true then maybe the iHobby will be a Snoozie!

Eh, I'd rather Atlas do 'em... before I die.
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.

The U30bs are from Atlas (second run).  Looks like more Trainman GP39-2s as well.

The Proto reference through me off. I was thinking Proto 2000.

The atlas catalog is up. No need to hurry, there's nothing to see.

usually there are a few interesting tidbits right before iHobby or Trainfest. Athearn will have announcements up on the 20th in time for iHobby, maybe a new product for N scale. Some of the new guys won;t go to iHobby but will be at Trainfest so we may get some interesting stuff in between iHobby and Trainfest.

One of these days someone will finally figure out they can make big money by doing an updated S1 to S4 Alco.  Lots of us been screaming for this a long time.  Surprised Atlas hasn't gotten the hint.
