So the old N vs OO topic......

Simple fact is OO is a larger market as as such there is more room for models especially niche prototypes.
so if you have to hit the target of 1000 models that is around 5% of the N gauge market and around 1.25% of the OO market, so there is a higher chance of hitting the required percentage.

Hattons doing the Treatment train is business wise very logical as more sales means more profit, what surprises me is model they have chosen as their first N gauge model the Bayer Garrett which is an very outfield model, but speaking to them they admit it but "wanted to make a statement", but whats to say they don't bring out the shrink ray for things like the RHTT when the orders slow down for the OO versions.

As any logical business would do if there is a chance of getting more money out of some of their work then they I see them taking it on at a later stage, especially if the results of the Bayer Garrett for sales is promising for what is a niche design.
