If somebody wanted to go through the hassle of setting up a full-blown factory here in the US, talk to Accurail, Bowser, Con-Cor, Atlas, Inter-Mountain, or any other of the companies that eventually had to partially or completely give in to overseas production or assembly.
Or maybe you would want to talk to Kadee instead. C’mon, Charlie.
Don't think customers would be happy to limit themselves to the small
number of models that Kadee has found it profitable to make.

Or take Bowser, who per their recent video still appear to do the
tooling and injection in the US - but spend years tooling up 1 new
model.

We want more variety than that, and more complicated models, and that
means China or the next low cost jurisdiction.
