I had an extended and interesting conversation with Lionel at York on Saturday. Having a background in economics and advertising some things became clear to me. If the economy of the country doesn't tank in the next year, Lionel will be doing some very interesting things including our favorite "s" gauge/scale.
I was very impressed by knowledgeable staff (they are all different folks than the ones I used to know) they were open, knew the product, the market and wanted to hear what the customer was saying. I can't help but believe that the coming years will be good for S in Lionel.
I know the Lionel haters will downgrade this, but with a decent economy, S will grow.
I am skeptical, but I hope you are correct.
