I feared that, nothing new, just new road names.  S should be called the "disappointed scale?

Then we'd have to call it "D" scale...

However, it's always been tough to be in S, although it was a little easier in the mid-late 90's-2001 before the Sanda Kan purge.

Regardless, Lionel has really been the only one producing S on a regular basis.  I don't think MTH ever really wanted to understand the S market.  We'll have to wait and see if Scale Trains can do better, but last I heard was not to expect anything until 2023.  The passing of Ron Sebastian (S Scale America) leaves the SSA line in limbo, while American Models hasn't been a ball of fire at least they're still alive and kicking.
