I don't think my standards were at all high in regards to the MTL F7A that was in my Xmas set, unless being too high means I should not expect it to run right out of the box with no problems or at least when sent back to be fixed to run when I get it back upon both times it did not. Maybe I'm the only one who has had that problem or maybe most of those out in Zland are so rich that they can afford to take a $200 hit and just throw the train set in a box in the closet and say "Oh well just another day kin the life of a Z Scaler". You know me well enought that if the damned junk had worked right as it should yopu would not heard anything from me nor would MTL. They just don't care about their customers, and their QC sucks.

Good advice. Let calm heads prevail.
Lee, I have to take issue to some extent regarding MTL not giving a d---. I
m sure they do, but all too often wrong or foolish, or near sighted
decisions are made that end up biting folks in the rear. It is entirely
possible that MTL had no control over the situation, just like initially AZL
did not have any extra parts. Slowly the wheels of justice turn and also
the businesses get up to speed.
BTW, the loco you mentioned in your other email that didn't work..........
it passed inspection with MTL so perhaps your standards were a might high?
Just saying. I know that not everyone can be pleased all the time and I
think this thread has pretty well run its course.
So, let's all 'spring' into action and build some trains today.
