Wow! Great news! I'm very excited. I've had some small doubts about moving forward with building a 2-rail layout when I heard MTH was going out of business. This makes it all better! Of course, this assumes they still offer the 2-rail versions which seems very likely. Sure, I would like to see them do steam as well, but we can't get greedy here.
What would be better is if they offered their own 2-rail models with PS3. I'm hoping to run all PS3 if possible, and DCC only when needed (on the new 2-rail layout). I haven't bought Atlas in the past because I don't buy floating pilots, TMCC and I couldn't run 2-rail with DCC (or didn't want to). If they install PS3 in their 2-rail models I'm sure I will be buying some especially the ones MTH did not make.
It would be great to see Andy, Rich and others from the MTH team be part of the acquisition.
Thank you Atlas!
