As Far as the number of components are concerned you are correct, but once duplicates are taken out of the equation its far lower. With regard to sales figures you are wrong, as I said in a previous reply C&L has a large following in both 7 & 4 mm scales, the loss in revenue will be more than compensated for buy, (1) selling C&L components which were duplicated within the range and (2) new products which take up the sales space

As far as the gauges concerned Martin Has covered in his reply

Where do you get your sales figures from? If you stood behind the counter at shows its a different story, unless Exactoscale go out on the road to shows, C&L will have a clear run. I have no axe to grind, I wish both companies well and I use Exactoscale parts in preference to C&L's

I guess the other place you refer to is RMweb, and a few are making a bit of noise, but its the same few. Track parts do not create enough revenue to stand on their own two feet, its a minority interest, a pity but that's the facts. Availability is king and at the moment there is only one player. initially the second player is limiting its availability to two societies. There is a third player who has a very limited range quietly in the background and has shown it is willing to join in if there is money to be made

As I said I wish both well I would also like this part of the hobby to grow, but its a minority interest many of whom are very conservative and loyal
