If you read past the first couple of pages there will be an Atlas O Premier Catalog in the late fall. Premier, as in no Trainman or Master.

My money says Atlas will remain in O scale but only with the MTH Premier tooling they acquired earlier in the year. I look for less products in the Trainman and Master lines and eventually they will disappear for good.

Atlas will roll out a new O catalog in early November.... they will also be moving their Masterline and Trainman existing tooling to the MTH factory they are using for manufacturing the MTH tooling they purchased.

Best News I’ve Heard IN A LONG TIME !!!!!!!  Maybe there’s hope we will AGAIN SEE more of those beautiful Masterline     diesels !!!!!!!!   πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘  How Ive missed some new issues

Fingers crossed, those ex-MTH Airslides are scale.  Anyway, 10 minutes with a hacksaw and 2-rail wheels, or $5000(??) on tooling and associated costs around offering a 2-rail item, box labels, then initial factory run of trucks and bodyshells, ....  I have an early MTH car, did they change it to give better ride height for KDs?

If you put an MTH airslide on Atlas 2 rail trucks, you can screw a kadee directly to the car, no spacers.

Almost sounds like the cartoon in ... Model Railroader(?), the company guys agreeing they'd better get cracking on the new model they announced, so many people having ordered it.  Almost....

Where are the 2-rail versions of the ex-MTH cars?  The Airslide and Gunderson 50ft hy-cube box at least are worth doing, just need 2-rail trucks.  Oh, and different labels on the cardboard boxes I suppose so ....
