I for one welcomed constructive, factual responses to my posts. Sadly, there are very few. So please, if you disagree agree with the facts and assumptions in my posts, then share your thoughts and facts. Sadly, it seems the best I get is: “you trash MTH” followed by the poster hiding. Not very interesting or enlightening.
Your response to every post is basically, "these are the signs of a company that is going to die" or "all of the best tooling has been purchased by other companies, how could they possibly succeed?" or "a catalog is a sign of stable and healthy company."
Like a company has never gone through a restructuring before, or discontinued antiquated methods of communicating about their products, or obsolete advertising channels.
Maybe the lean and mean MTH decided to sell off the dead weight, and refocus on new tooling in a few years. Who knows. I wouldn't count out the company that reinvented 3-rail O-scale, just like I wouldn't count out the oldest name in the business, Lionel even though they circled the drain several times through the years.
