      I apologize for not completing my first posting of this subject. I
      meant to write more but time pressed me to send it sooner than
      expected. Since I didn't get it right the first time, I will try to
      do better now.

      When I wrote the word "Collector's Month" I took the definition out
      of the Hobo Tim's International Dictionary! It says that a
      Collector's Month is any month that MTL will definitely not sell out
      of their releases for quite a long time!

      As I thumb my way thru the dictionary I also find this word, "Sell-
      out Month". The definition of a Sell-out Month is any month where an
      anticipated release is due to come out and MTL is sweating and
      wondering if they indeed made enough items to satisfy the first
      release! Then the examples state past and future items. Gunderson
      Husky, New Track system, GP35 for the past releases and PS2 two bay
      hoppers, New Track system Turnouts & larger radius circles, and GP7/9
      for the future releases.

      So, I hope these terms will clarify any wrong messages I might have
      conveyed in the previous posting. Just stating mine and other Z
      scalers verbal/written statements on this months releases.
