My perception of T Gauge, as expressed in my previous post, has been based on what I see—or don't see. When I don't see new products emerging, or updates to a neglected, stagnant company website, my imagination tends to make the worst of it. Couple this with uncertain economic times, not to mention a noticeable dip in forum participation, and things may look positively gloomy, to use an oxymoron.
Well, the time for dire speculation is ended, at least for the present. Darren Hodges, proprietor of Hobbies Plus in Stratford, Australia, was kind enough to forward to me a fresh-off-the-wire dealer pricelist, which should not only quell any concerns about the current state of T, but should also bring joy to those who have been patiently awaiting the arrival of new trainsets, track switches, and other long-promised goodies.
So, Doubting Thomases and Chicken Littles can rest easier for the time being, and can return to work on their T scale empires, confident that they should find new T scale toys under the Christmas Tree this year. My apologies for allowing my skepticism to get the better of me, and for the chills that may have been sent down any loyalists' spines by my blog.
