Atlas Code 55 deliveries

Ok...my plywood empire is ready for track...has been for a year...any idea when we can expect code55 track...flex and switches in the stores.  I see it advertized, but no one has most of it, and my local hobby shop keeps getting messages that push it out another two weeks, every two weeks. 

Frustrated in Oregon.   :D

Equally frustrated here, but fortunately/unfortunately my serious layout progress is being pushed out in the same sort of two-week increments by room construction.

Anyway, one of the recent threads - Amherst show? - mentioned Atlas was looking at an April-May timeframe.

While the HO has shipped, the N will ship after the Chinese New Year.

HOVER-TRAINS!   You don't need track!

Or model abandoned right of way.

My sympathies.  My track is back-ordered.  Atlas said May.

I wonder if Micro Engineering is swamped with orders.  For flex, at least.  Maybe rail, too.

That's been the retail price of C55 for at least 2 years. If you had the last C55 track in the US, would you discount it with people willing to pay over retail for it.

One word: Ugly

Might as well use C80, visually they aren't much different.

ME is the flex track solution but then what to do for turnouts other than build your own? Give it time, I figure at least May before everything is back in stock consistantly and even then there may be ripples afterwards.
