    Guys,I find the number of new monthly releases astronomical..I may be mistaken but,I don't recall so many models being announce on monthly bases since the 60s..Sure a lot is new releases of previously release models in new road names but,still the numbers is still staggering especially from Athearn,Atlas and Walthers..:thumb:
    It is a very good time to be in the hobby.:D

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    I am not sure that these are necessarily new. The majority seem to be a RTR version of something that (presumably) was previously available in kit form.

    The video of the container crane was very cool. There's something about loading an entire train though that sounds more like work than a hobby and $750 is soooooo much.

    That would keep a guy busy loading and unloading containers/trailers..Of course by using a fast clock and scheduling stack/pig trains..:eek: If you get my drift one would be doing this in a very short time I reckon..hamr

    I saw it at the National Train show, and a guy was demonstrating it, but he wouldn't let anyone try it out.
