Does anyone know if Bachmann will ever make Brass Track?

What's planned for the next engine after the three truck Shay.

I doubt it, there are plenty of Track sources anyway.

The K, sometime later this year.

This would be a situation of making a "me too" product! Aristo and USA both have nearly identical track and LGB also has it's brand (slight different but still compatable with the Aristo/USA)  that have been around for decades! It really doesn't make much sense to enter a market that is already saturated with quality products.
  Personally, I would like to see Bachmann enter into some kind of agreement whereby they could include the brass track in their sets so as to avoid the inevitable confusion that arises when it's time to expand a person's layout. Also, since most of the new Spectrum locomotives require a minimum radius curvature that is larger than the 2' curves that Bachmann produces, it would seem to make sense from that aspect as well. Of course, Bachmann is probably just happy with the situation as it is.

A friends wife ask me how to keep rust off the track, they where having trouble keeping the trains running.  I told her the track was brass and it didn't have rust on it, well seems they had used the track with his Sam's Wholesale Set.  He changed everything to Aristo Stainless.

Russ, I got in on the Track Sale last year and picked up 600 feet.  I thought the sale was over, but it looks like I have another month.  I may be able to pick up a few boxes this year. I need to get it running soon as I can.
