Micro-Trains web page changed

Noted that the April offerings were not there yesterday or earlier today.  Just checked again and was redirected to their new web page.  Reminds me of the old saying, "If it's not broke, don't fix it".  I miss the old site and still not sure what's new for April.  Maybe I'm showing my age.

Although not real obvious, the April releases are there.

Under "Categories" choose "N Scale" and then "New Releases". You get a list that has the March and April and some runner pack pre-orders.  Each item entry has a release date, look for the ones labeled 4/2015.  Not exactly handy or fool-proof. I would give it a grade "C" in human interface score.  It's also a bit slow.

"A bit slow?"  It's very slow, and I was on about seven hours ago when half the continent was sleeping.

Other content is missing also. The database links are working but the other literature is not.

I like the new format. I can order direct much easier. Great job Micro Trains Line. And with any site it should get faster as they work out the bugs. :D

I'm going to +1 that.  The old site was a mess for me.  What is up now is promising as an improvement.

Might there be a photo of a SP SW 1500 model, in place of an artist rending?  I need to get out more :facepalm:

I can't find the big pictures Micro-Trains used to have. At least for official dealers.

I think the new site's overall design and flow is much, much better than that of the old one. 
I can see that there is some content yet to add and what not but it's headed in the right direction.

The searching and display for all the trucks and couplers is MUCH better.
THANK YOU FOR THIS!

For years I have been frustrated by not being able to just look through all the available couplers, see photos
of them, the instructions, mounting data, and so on.  Now it's almost all on there... at least they are all displayed and most of the instruction sheets are right there.  It would be nice to see photos of the actual couplers (and the same on
the trucks page).  .. no rush... just something to note as you make changes to the web site over time.
