Good article in this month's CTT on Mike Wolf. The link is posted above. He doesn't go into any detail on future standard gauge plans but this is definitely not a guy that's on the ropes.
I hope he does well. He is driving much of this hobby now, hopefully he will retain that spirit of fun and innovation. Actually, if he just sticks with quality I'll be happy.
Check it out, his take on some of the changes the TCA needs to make was kind of interesting.
