I was just wondering after so many years of not being able to obtain Atlas Turnouts because of Atlas' china problems,Is the stock getting depleted all over again? I've been trying to obtain some & they're always out of stock in the #5s. The #7.5s are available,but do we have to wait how many years again before the stock gets replenished? Being new to O Scale,(relatively),I assume the way Atlas makes runs of everything else,they don't order track, especially in 2 rail, very often either.(?)

Thank you for all replys in advance.

PRRHORSESHOECURVE,

Well I been trying to get turnouts from Micromark & they're ALWAYS BACKORDERED from their supplier. This has been going on for over a year&I called to see if they were just getting out of O Scale & they said,"no," it's just backordered & they weren't sure what the problem was.

I also have tried checking Norm's O scale & if you want #5s you're supposed to call for availability. So I thought after being out of supply for so long that possibly many modelers bought in a rush & the supply got short again.

Thank you for the reassurance.

Try Signature Switch Company (http://www.signatureswitchco.com). They're price-competitive with Atlas and make a nicer looking turnout. Another one is O Scale Turnouts (http://www.oscaleturnouts.com) -- a bit more expensive. Atlas has raised the price of their turnouts to roughly $90. Both make turnouts in code 148 to match Atlas or Micro Engineering track.
