Personally, I would prefer scale over Hi-Rail, but it has become painfully apparent that there will be precious little new scale product being made. Most of the scale modelers on the S scale Facebook group are saying that "S scale" is going back to its "scratch builder" roots. That doesn't particularly interest me.
Well, River Raisin addresses the S scale part of the market. They offered a beautiful (albeit expensive) brass RTR model of the Lima Berkshire a few years ago. If I were a 'scaler' I would have jumped at the chance to purchase one. The new Lionel AF offering is a shot at 'it' for us hi-railers.
To be fair Bob, Dan has done one new project in the last 5 years and he hasn't been able to get support for a few that he wanted to make. How much longer do you think he will be in the game? <snip>
Well, what does this indicate about Lionel's viable business options?
The folks who prize 'S scale' should have purchased the River Raisin model. If they didn't support Dan at the time with a purchase, then complaining here, regrettably, isn't going to rectify the situation.
