If any of you are on Facebook and like the idea of ATLAS flex track do the scale a favor and go to ATLA's Facebook page and tell them so.Don't recall if it was mentione but thebtrack is code 55 and the pieces are 24" long,and that is straight from Paul Graf.
Over on the "Railwire" forum, it was confirmed that it will be code 55. Hopefully, this will lead to some broad turnouts (8s,10s,12s).
Perhaps this is a good time to be in Z...

At least turnouts better than out-of-the-pack Micro-Track. I won't complain too much. All the turnouts on my layout are done and work quite well after reworking them. I don't plan on doing another layout anytime soon but it would be nice to see Atlas in the mix, though.
Nope! No worries here. I would be happy to add Atlas to that list of names.
It seems that you're rather confident about maintaining your market share of flex track.
I don't get this... Atlas flex track is great stuff...
Its Atlas' most popular product. It is in O, HO and N already.
Making it in Z scale, acknowledges how much Z scale has grown. Z scale is now somebody...
Stephen Shaffan, who founded Atlas, got a patent on the flex track because it was so good.
What makes Atlas' Super-Flex Track so good ...is that it is unlike other curve-able track, which tends to "kink" when flexed ...Atlas' track can be formed and re-formed until you arrive at the correct shape. Its patented!
This will help me make those easy curves that my new longer AZL locomotives work so well on.
I think this is a good thing for everybody

OOPS! guess I missed reading strummer's post.
Got a note from Paul, too: He's a great guy, for sure...
Thank you for your interest in our upcoming Z scale flex track. We are still making some final adjustments to the molds, so the product is not on the market yet. We do expect to make the official announcement in July. Please keep an eye on our web site, or sign up for our email newsletters.
