The DA freight car ladders - very fine parts - are also
extremely prone to breakage. I never knew it was just
crummy (crumbly?) plastic. But since the problem never seems to
happen with Kadee ladders, I now see the
wisdom of this explanation.

DA did use regrind plastic when they did kits and parts. The
brittleness runs across their parts line. The handbrake sets
also suffer breakage issues.
The DA AB brake sets were done by Grandt Line and do not seem
to have this problem.
I have over 20 of the DA gons and back in the '90's, they sent
me a fair # of replacement parts for plastic that was broken
in brand new kits.
I don't think they will still do that.
