    Did Atlas declare that they would discontinue making their C100 HO track?

    I was on their site looking at the catalog and there was very little info on the C100 catalog. I couldn't find prices and all that would pop up when I clicked items was a photo.

    Are they no longer supporting the product?

    Bummer for me as I have a lot of deep flange european locos. No I'm not gonna get any wheel flanges turned either.

    I seriously doubt it, but why not contact them directly to get answers to you question than worry people in a forum unnecessarily?

    Just go to their website and find their customer service email. They have always been quick to respond to me.

    Here I'll even make it easy for you although google works for most people.

    I will do that. That is almost too easy an answer to my question. :)

    I've found most company websites are easily found using google and finding contact info once there is usually not difficult.

    I took a moment and check MB you know who's website and they seem to have quite a bit of Atlas code 100 flex track in-stock to mail order. I imagine there are quite a few other vendors who have it too.

    Thanks Paul. When I visited your site I just got picture links with no prices. That got me wondering. :)

    I was in a hurry and did not see the blue link to this!

    But your ordering link is a 404. You may want to fix that.

    This is interesting to me. I also have a fair bit of Euro models (Lima, Piko, mostly Roco) and I'm finding they all run on the code 70(!) ME track I have...

    What am I missing here? :)

    I just never bothered to test it on smaller code track. I've read bout how european stuff does not run on American track as well since the 70's. Thanks for the pointer. I will try to test my trains.

    Are your trains newer or older models? I have a lot of 60's to 80's trains.

    I just tried a Roco BR 01 and two freight cars (all 80s vintage) on some code 80 track I have. All wheels cleared the ties fine. I’m curious how the 60s and 70s equipment will do.

    I also went with code 100, antipating I would need it for the older locomotives I intended to buy, especially European.

    I think most of my stuff is from the 1980s, with some from the '90s. Even a Rivarossi "P10"...

    IMG_20170414_115518469.jpg ...runs on the Code 70 without issue. I'm really surprised by that...

    PS: I might also add that these engines, especially the Roco models, run incredibly well; as good as any Kato engines I have, which is saying something!

    The higher end european models tended to do the same kinds of advancements we saw in our models here over the past few decades. They too had a lot of discussions about prototype flange depths.

    flieschman, roco, etc. Those have always been very fine running locos.

    My collection is made up of a lot of older toy train grade stuff. I have it for sentimental reasons, as I bought some myself and some was sent to me by my uncle back in the 70's. But I also have acquired newer fine scale models as well.

    The Lima locos from earlier on all have that lima G type motor. I've found that with a bit of cleaning and fresh lube those can be made to run really nicely.

    I have some odd locos. One being a Jouef 4 8 2 that has a tender drive in it. Lovely old beast, not exactly a fine runner. It's more of a high speed runner. :)

    I don't even want to think about DCC at this point. Some of the old locos would be really hard to convert. Yet I already have a modern Roco with a decoder in it, and several modern locos that came with decoder plugs.
