    Yes! Western Pacific U30Bs would be great. I'd be up for three or four. Oh, and I'll second a SP&S U36C!

    You mean C636s? SP&S, nor did any of the BN predecessor roads have U36Cs.

    Dear Atlas, I wish you would make an N-scale version of everything you already make in HO.

    Any of the BLMA parts that were in stock when we purchased BLMA will be available starting the week of April 25. We are reviewing the out of stock items and talking to the suppliers now about restocks.

    Some items (SD 38 and Cow/Calf) seem more likely to be Kato requests (I am sure thread will follow) but why not put in my 2 cents?

    Alco 424 for those Belt Railway of Chicago fans
    Most generic chop nose geep you can build, just to get the ball rolling with a few road names......

    And a question....whatever happened to the code 65 snap track? Could think of a few uses on my next layout but rarely see this in stores any more.....

    BTW, saw a new run of the 25K tankers in NSR last night. Good job! Somehow I missed many of those. Between those and the 31K BLMA tankers, it should reduce your requests for more tank cars.....

    Isn't Code 55 proportionally scaled down 100 track? I think it is, showing how much less fine scale you can be in N. Code 40 would be less than code 83. To replicate Code 70, you would need code 38 rails.

    And N Code 80 works out to HO Code 145 or so.....

    No, but how about some sectional street trackage that, if not Code Eighty can be connected to it? Number Four turnouts are a major necessity. The turnouts on the Kato are A) too sharp, B) have too many plastic frogs in the worst places which causes the shorter wheelbase power that usually operated on street trackage to stall for lack of contact and C) are double tracked, although most street trackage was single track.

    While on the subject of compatibility, could Atlas come out with an adapter that would allow Code Eighty track to connect to the Code Sixty-Five TRU-TRAK? Of all of the track-cum-roadbed available, I like the Atlas the best, but, due to a lack of an adapter, I have been unable to use it.

    Yes, C636s not U36Cs. Where the heck was my head at? Dur!

    I'm fairly certain the request for line replication was in reference to motive power and rolling stock.....

    Have you talked to your suppliers about restocking your own trucks? :)

    Most of the Code 65 True Track is in stock. The pieces that aren't are on order with the factory. Cory is also over there right now presenting some new pieces for quotation.

    Yes, this is true.

    Can you imagine trying to get manufacturers together on a flange that would run on code 40?

    I don't foresee street trackage in the immediate future, but I will pass along the request.

    As far as an adapter, this is something Cory has been looking into.

    For realsies, or are you just being cruel?

    What would be the ETA on something like that - over/under a year from now?
