ST started from get go with direct, and select retailers and then pulled back some of the retailers.
    Yeah, that's probably not the best business plan?

    I am with Greenwizard. Since BLMA got snapped up by Atlas, they produce by far the nicest looking cars out there. I have 3 or 4 engines along with about a dozen cars from them. One of the engines was a dud, called and sent back, and they fixed the motor no problem - yeah it cost me a little more on shipping, but cost of doing business on the internet I guess. The big blow UP engines are amazing and sound is excellent. As long as they continue to manufacture for N scale, then I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. Judge each product on its own merits I suppose. YMMV.

    I confess, I like their stuff as well.
    When I said I was done with them, it was because of their choice of couplers and not knowing that they could be changed out. But that was before Karl showed me the light.
    Seeing that they CAN be changed out fairly easy, I won't shut the door on them completely.

    I'm just going to say, I'd put up with a lot from them if they bring their SD40T-2 with the see-through radiator to N scale.

    Best let them know asap. Most people seem to want the tunnel motors without see-thru screens and more weight.

    Well that's no fun. Why would anyone want extra weight? That just means fewer locomotives in your consists, which means fewer awesome see-through grills per train!

    A simple solution to make everyone happy would be to include an optional removable weight in the space. But without at least the option, what would be the point of another Tunnel Motor model? Intermountain models don't seem to be rare.

    Well a lot of those IMRC models are hit and miss on running quality.
    Scale Trains will probably be better runners plus they'll have sound I'm sure.

    Does this mean you couldn't use the pre-assembled couplers?

    I tried those before and about pulled my hair out
