MDC?

Don't hang out on Usenet much anymore, but yuo folks are my best shot: is
MDC still in business? I was looking at this year's Walthers catalog, and
realized that I didn't see it mentioned. Then I just went out on the Web,
and found somebody linking to them, and the link was dead.
So, anyone?

Now owned by Athearn. Freight equipment is rapidly being reissued with significant upgrades. As is the RS3. No news on the steam locomotives.

MDC/Roundhouse was bought by Horizon Hobbies (a distributor that owns a number of airplane, ship and other model lines.) HH also bought Athearn. Some of the MDC stuff is being released as RTR under the Athearn label. Assembled in China, with metal wheels, and some added details, and at about 3x the price of the kits, which are not avialable at this time.
There appear to be no plans to reissue the MDC loco or rolling stock kits at this time.

Don't give up hope, though. We may see the kits yet. Horizon hasn't said that they are discontinuing them, either. In fact they have said nothing. Bastiches.
In the meantime Bowser has their PRR Atlantic on sale for about the same as the MDC one used to cost:
