- Jan 31 3:27 PMI concur most N scale steam sells out before it hit the market. Then now Kato says no more mike's after selling out 3 runs. The Atlas Shays sell out every run so why not more stream? As for the new Mike in Z wish I knew rob was going to carry them as I just ordered one the other night also. Will run as a Z scale but will also see about converting one to Nn3.
