rest of the model railroading industry is advancing with finer and
more acurate detailing, major electronic enhancements like sound,
flicker free lighting, animation, etc.
Look how model railroad scenery has advanced in the past decade... we
went from bottle brush trees and sawdust grass, to Architectural Grade
scenery as seen in the latest Scenics Express catalog.
Look at the superdetailing out of the box in N and HO scale these
days, and their electronics are unbelievable!
Let's all ask for the best we can, especially when the items are still
in their design phase! Let's get those metal wheels and all wheel
electrical power pickup built in while designing new passenger trucks!
Lest ask for out products to be built to the same standards that N
Scalers have. After all, everything is produced to much tighter
tolerances these days, not just electronics.
