Reply to "Electronic pcb boards and parts in general. Whats there shelf life?"

@Lou1985 ......

Before someone chimes in on the durability of prewar or postwar trains: if you remove the electronics from a modern locomotive it is more mechanically robust than pretty much 60+ year old train. If modern locomotives came with a mechanical E-unit they would run and run virtually forever with no maintenance (i.e. no need to clean commutators or replace brushes/brush springs).

trying to stem off the inevitable flood of replies?...that was good Lou!!....
