I tried creating a thread like this to separate the Rail King discussion from the Atlas/Premier discussion. Seemed logical and even harmless to me since the Atlas purchase of Premier items along with licensing DCS is pretty squarely focused on 1:48 scale but not applicable to us semi/O27 scalers. The thread got deleted, as I imagine this one will as well.
I hope Rail King continues, just hard for me to conceive who'd buy the line and why. Yes, some nice items (I own 6 RK engines and a good amount of rolling stock), but seems like an overlap with what WBB and Lionel already have. Then again, there are a lot of people with more insight into the economics of the 3RO industry than me, so I'm all ears and hopeful that Rail King fits into someone's strategy and portfolio.
