Dan,

Are you familiar with Kern Valley Railway's cars? Maybe those would be right for your S2.

Jim,

I think I saw their display model at the 2013 East Coast Large Scale Train Show, but point taken and good to know.

A counterpoint to the future health of the hobby would be the explosion of wealth in emerging markets. Places like China and India have the potential to become the largest hobby buyers, simply due to the population size.

Though who knows if you'll get Pullmans or Chinese bullet trains? ;)

Here's hoping Aster continues as a going concern in the presence of a market that includes the Chinese and the Korean products.
Yes, this is one of my fears too.

More product encroaching on the lower or middle part of the market erodes sales from the higher end, and lower production runs force still higher prices ...

Through an alternative theory is that cheaper substitutes become akin to free advertising for the real thing (like all those knockoff Rolexes and such.)

More accessible price points should help new entrants, and hopefully some will get hooked!

Very nice, Joe.

Did you mention what you're pulling them with?
