Just read on the Atlas site that the trainmaster distributor orders have closed. Here is what Paul Graf from Atlas had too say "The orders we have received have surpassed even my expectations, and the popularity ranks right up there with what we did on the N scale SD-60s." Although I'm not interested in purchasing a trainmaster I believe it is important for N scale modellers as it just goes to prove N scale is increasing in popularity. Lets all just get behind these Manufacturers as this will only enhance our hobby. Wouldn't is be great if we could just walk into a hobby shop and have showcases full of rollingstock and locomotives for us N scalers to purchase. One more manufacturer like Athearn to take notice of N scale and this dream could come true.
