- Maybe they need bring it all back to the USofA. Remember "Where our flag is flown,We take care of our own", Bruce Springsteen on his "Wrecking Ball " cd

this not something new, this problem has been around for over a year. There are signs that some new product is to arrive shortly and some already has but in small amounts. lack of product was caused when a major Chinese supplier cut off a large chunk of their customer base in the Z scale market. It has taken time for MTL to find another manufacturer in China to transfer tooling and get production back on line. as a result they are behind on several projects not just the track. The only product that is steady and in good supply is what they manufacture themselves in Oregon.
