Welcome to the latest edition of the Scoot...

This issue includes a king Kato redux.  They have announced pricing for the new FEF-3 and it appears they have moved up delivery to late 2014.  Even better they have announced additional products that will compliment this beautiful locomotive perfectly.

There also some new announcements from Atlas to consider.

Great news!  Kato has shipped the new Unitrack Turntable and it is in stock and ready to ship.

Atlas continues it's path of product delivery and has delivered a couple of new models.

Regarding my website, I have changed the way I will list new models going forward.  

Instead of creating individual categories for each release like "HO FVM GP60", I will just create a generic bucket category like "New Models 2014-08".  This will make it easier to see what's new since the last time you visited.

And to that end, I am now stocking Excel tools and hope to have the Kalmback model railroad reference books available shortly.  I will get these added to the site in the coming weeks.

So, lots to see in this edition.
