Re: Pre-orders, pro or con.

I think that Kadee is a shining example of how to run a model rail business selling RTR product. Consider--even though their primary product is now copied by others, they still sell a lot of couplers. And a lot of Excellent STMFC's. Many other firms would do well to follow their business model!!

How does Kadee do it here in the US?
Very well. There was an article in MR about 20 years ago that told the
story, which I expect is continuing. You can't wander in with a wad of
cash and wave it around and start up a company like Kadee. They are what
they are today because they always have been, and before that they were
built from the ground up with some pretty unique - and I might say - old
fashioned ideas about how to run a business. Starting with the saying if
you want something done right do it yourself. Which leads me back to kits...
