Question... If you aren't interested in buying trains why comment on a survey for new products? That confuses me. It is exactly the reason I mentioned "are willing to purchase" in the survey. Lionel is only interested in what they can sell I'm sure.
I don't know how many folks you were referring to, don't be to confused, I for one stated, "I don't think so", BUT, if a Legacy Hudson would appear on the horizon I might well be persuaded, especially if it might fit Milw. Rd. configuration. There may be more "BUTS" here than you suspect. I don"t have the spendable income I had while working but, I can be tempted.
I do agree, it would be nice if more people would chime in on this topic, S people are definitely different folks from Lionel people. We, especially, AF people, think ourselves maybe a little more like scale people. We, in general don't so much go for the Halloween types of cars but at the same time might be willing to buy Christmas cars, maybe just tradition. I don't know, just my humble opinion.
