Does anyone here know the story on NJ International? I have recently been designing my signal system for my layout. There’s no doubt that NJ International makes some very nice pieces at a very high price. However, if you visit their website just about every thing they have is sold out.

A friend of mine that owns a online hobby shop told me recently that he thinks they went belly up. Their distributor/dealers sites show they have very few of NJ’s products in stock. They have a huge variety of products but seem to be slim pickings for the consumer.

By not knowing the status of NJ I went with Atlas for my setup but NJ does have a few unique items I would like to throw in the mix. If they are going out it makes me leary of buying their equipment.

Atlas tossed a few modern sets in the market and the hobbyist went crazy over them so needless to say Atlas is stepping up their production to quench us thirsty train drivers. The demand is huge and many sellers are taking advantage of this window on eBay. It’s the same with NJ products on eBay bumping up pricing 40% - 50% - 60% of retail.

I don't know what's up with them either, but I recently completed my signaling using 8 of their #1037's. Bought two from eBay and the rest directly from their website for virtually the same price. They all work great except for the one I killed :mad: It looks like I may want to get an extra one just in case!
