That's a little bit off my point... certainly Lionel will not go backwards. Nor will anyone else. But, IMO, MTH and Lionel mainly drove the technology in today's O gauge industry. They were almost like the PC/Mac competition in the personal computer industry--the two big players that drove the industry forward.
Backwards - no. Lack of as much forward momentum-highly likely!
Lionel just released a 200 page catalog filled with more stuff in that one catalog then I can get in a lifetime. Post MTH, I think that catalog only gets bigger with more good stuff for all of us. Foot stomp... stomp...stomp...stomp The hobby is going to be OK after MTH. There will be more locomotives for you to purchase then your wallet can cover. Don't worry
