Reply to "Speculating on cost of DCS license for atlas"

I think Brian really hit it on the head with 2 quotes:

"It’s looking more and more to me that this deal was more about Atlas getting access to the MTH factory than the tooling."

Bingo!  I believe this has been Atlas' real problem over the past few years - manufacturing.  And the deal solves the issue.

"The real value in O gauge was K-Line. It’s a travesty that they couldn’t stay in business."

Amen, amen, amen!  There are some aspects of MTH that I will miss, e.g. accessories, steel-related cars, PRR N6b's.  DCS is not one of them.  K-Line, however, was on the verge of eclipsing everyone in 2004 before their somewhat sketchy decisions sank them.
