Quoting pullmanboss <tgmadden@...>:
Would it not make FAR more sense to use one such piece that he was
particularly pleased with as the master for all of them? Like others on
this list I have had some issues with Martin over the years but never
thought he was this foolish.
I appreciate the responses to my query on these cars and have
concluded that both the F & C and Sunshine version of the B & O cars are
great kits to avoid. Thanks to all who responded.
