I would have to disagree, they just had a run of (HO scale) GP38's and GP40's, hit the stores about 2 months ago. The Genset II hit the stores a few months earlier. I got 2 different covered hopper runs from my dealer in the past 6 weeks. So stuff seems to be flowing again. I know the shipping of overseas stuff was slowed down a bit.

I was looking at their production schedule in regards to the HO signal line and there's no much on the horizon... Sure could use more of the BLMA/Atlas modern signal heads!  Hopefully soon!

Heck with this new stuff, produce SP/ATSF style cantilevers and operatiing style B semaphores.

I'd be happy with the ATSF style searchlights that BLMA was producing, right before Atlas took them over.

They had a run of RSD4/5s and RS3s a couple of months ago.

Looking at what Atlas has shipped in the last year as per dates on the Production Scehdule on their website....

N, GP38-2, 2/7/2020
N. GP-30, 3/18/2020
N, C-420, 7/2/2020
N. GP38, 7/2/2020
N, RS-1, 12/2/2020
N, GP35, 5/29/2020
N, RS-2, 12/2/2020
N, GP39-2 Phase 2, 10/28/2020

HO, SD35, 3/18/2020
HO, RS-3, 5/29/2020
HO, RSD4/5, 5/29/2020
HO, GP38/GP40, 10/28/2020 and 12/2/2020
HO, GP40-2. 12/2/2020

No O scale locomotives shipped in 2020 that I can see.

Qiute a few models have estimated ship dates in 2021. 

Given the current business model of preorders (well covered by Jason from Rapido in a column in the brand new Model Railroader) it's possibly to highly likely that newly released models could slip past anybody if you're not paying attention to new announcements and are getting orders placed upon announcement, or you get very lucky when your local shop (if you have one) manages to get a few in stock.

After getting caught up on some past production Atlas stuff, there doesn't seem to be much for me coming down the pike as a D&RGW fan.  Even the new 5250 covered hopper with it's high price and too narrow end cage seems to be doubtful for me to purchase.  Shame.

Cheers,
Jim

Just think of the money you're saving!
And I'm sure you'll find another place to spend it.

Like maybe an Arrowhead 5250 hopper or something else done right for the money.  ;-)

Cheers,

I've also noticed that the Genesis SD70/75s and SD80Macs scheduled for delivery in early January, 2021, are now TBD. I hope they weren't in one of the containers lost off the container ship ONE Apus a month ago.

THIS one is getting very old as they keep pushing the release date back! I plan on getting atleast one if and when there ever coming out!
