As one who he “annoyed” repeatedly, I miss the annoyance.
I’m not sure that Tony meant that in a derogatory way Don.

Tony Thompson writes "Richard Hendrickson annoyed practically all the manufacturers, all the
time". That choice of words astounds me. If what Richard actually did was "annoy" manufacturers
then what this hobby needs is about fifty more "Annoyers" to get some needed items produced
without all the duplication we have seen with things such as EMD F-units and such. Given the
preponderance of complaints on the PCL of late with regard to the difficulty of opening Walthers'
latest Chinese puzzles a few "Annoyers" for things in that regard are long overdue as well. Let
us hope we do not see any imported freight equipment of interest to those of us on the STMFC
arrive with similar issues. Just what are the designers of such items thinking? Certainly not about
the final customer.
Just my two bits worth, Don Valentine
