Re: A Certain American Company (was new Walthers USRA 55 ton hopper)
I feel like the proto line has raised the bar for the hobby, I cant falt them if they need to generate income some other way. I will not be buying the coolers so the are after a different market. The question I have is how they arrive at what they are going to produce in the hobby line. How many more UP Challengers do we need. How may more C&O engines will be produced vs the many other pieces of equipment that are equally noteworthy. Steve

There is nothing wrong with loyalty to American companies andSpeaking of loyalty to a company - and freight cars <g>, has
anyone here been paying attention to Life-Like lately? Every
time I check out their web page there's another non-railroad
product, like drink coolers and foam packing material. The
latest "railroad" item: Norman Rockwell "collectible" boxcars.
There's been no new *railroad* products announced for quite
some time, only reincarnations of old cars and locomotives with
sound and other nonsense. I have a closetful of Proto-2000 kits
and locomotives, probably more than I'll ever have time to build.
I can say with some confidence that unless they come up with a
new and different "railroad" product, they will have lost my
customer loyalty - and hobby dollars - for good.
