    Me too.

    As a reply to what is stated above, true, these turnouts are not to be considered as a drop-in replacement to Marklin/MTL/Rokuhan that all 3 have the same footprint. They are not an easy option for an already existing layout.

    But they are "true" #6 turnouts, which are very easy to use provided one won't choose any Marklin, Rokuhan or any other sectional track manufacturer's trackplan, but will rather use any trackplan software, and flextrack.

    In my opinion these Atlas turnouts are really a great step forward for our scale, that was greatly missing.

    Hi Pavel, there a a couple of online retailers that offer Atlas. I am not sure it is within TB policy to suggest any, but this is a start for retailshops: http://shop.atlasrr.com/storeLocator.aspx

    Or contact me offline.

    Since June I upon us and all the previous guesstimates had the turnouts shipping from Atlas by now, I was wondering if anyone is aware of a new guess for a ship date? I don't see their status on the Atlas master list.

    Apparently they are on the second set of tooling for the turnouts......just a rumor I heard. Don't expect them available before Fall.

    I got a reply from Atlas today. "They are scheduled for July production, so hopefully arrive in late August/early September."
