This may be a common question, but here goes ...... Is Bachmann going to make the shay available again?

No plans to do so at the moment.

I get the impression that the bottom has dropped out of the 0n30 market.
There is more money to be made with for example Thomas and friends.
I live in the Netherlands so for me it is no longer interesting to import models from the states due to the exchange rate of the dollar against the euro and the exorbitant high transportation costs.

I kind of wonder that, as well.
I've talked to a couple of Bachmann company reps at train shows in the past couple of years and they deny any questions on Bachmann backing out of On30 or seriously downgrading their involvement, yet loco and rolling stock types keep vanishing from shelves and retailer listings.
Heck, I can't even find any high-gons to experiment with for a project I'm pondering, and I used to find them all the time.
