I think (and this is a guess - no inside knowledge!) that because there's an RTR model of just about every basic type of car (i.e. wood side reefer/stock car/box car/etc) then the chances of the well being poisoned by foobies is unlikely to increase - simply because that ship has already sailed.

I think the more "dangerous" thing in that regard is a poorly executed model.

A page from the Mike Brock Manual of Prototype Fidelity:

"The ability of model railroaders to distinguish perfect models from
foobie models is inversely proportional to the speed of the train that
is passing right in front of them".

So when Richard Hendrickson, et al, come to visit, just lay on the throttle!
