That's it for my interchange line from the south. Although I would like to find some hoppers or gondolas but at the moment they are not available and a bit pricey.

Got some of my Atlas HO Scale Code 83 Nickel Silver 22" Radius Track (6pcs) #535 in today. I have a few other orders coming. I will soon be laying track. I like starting out with a fixed curve then on to flex. I like the keep the joints straight. So I flex before and after a fixed curves or even a straight piece of track coming off a switch or going into switch.

I know this is supposed to be about what you ordered and received, but this is what I would like to order and receive. That being Atlas N scale code 55 turnouts. We appear to be going through another period of scarcity. I haven't been able to find any anywhere. Does anyone know of a place other than the Great Auction Place In the Cloud that has any available? They mostly want a king's ransom there!
I just checked Hiawathahobbies.com and they have #7’s and #10’s left hand only, no #5. This is an area that you would think Atlas could bring back home to New Jersey or at least out of China. I wonder how much these shortages have cost them monetarily over the years, let alone customer confidence. Good luck.

Are you short pieces? I have a bunch as I've gone fully flextrack.

Check out Micro Engineering for code 55 N. Not sure if they are doing their new line of #5s in N yet, though.
