Hey guys, perhaps the Santa Fe truck is over stocked at Menards and the promotion is a way to reduce the inventory? One way a modeler can make the most out of this free give away is make it a flat car load as if it is being delivered to the AT&SF motor fleet. This also explains away the reason you may already own several. How about a train with six or more enroute to their final destination to be placed in service?
Otherwise, it can also make the perfect birthday gift to give to a young O gauge model railroader or wait until the holiday season, which afterall, isn't that far away now.
