If I had it to do over, I would not have fooled with Lionel Fastrack, it is cheap, and the pins break off if you look at them wrong. After looking in the last catalog, I don't know how anyone can get into this hobby. I too will be sticking with Atlas and MTH (as long as its out there) I wish Lionel would come back to America with its manufacturing, If I am going to pay 100 dollars a car, I would pay that for quality vs cheap. I am going to miss MTH dearly, as I collect all Scale products 1/48. I may just have to live with what I have collected for the last 20 years.
