Reply to "Lionel product packaging going downhill"

I love their paper thin locomotive shippers also. I would gladly pay for more substantial packaging which should really be included in the prices they are at these days.

I understand they want to get away from styrofoam and it can be done.  My gripe is that they've gone overboard on minimizing their packaging investment and the product suffers as a result.  I pay too much for these items to have to go through and "touch up" a new to me beauty to have it correct.

LionelAG, be sure and check out the thread Lionel 2021 Catalogs in early (?) for the Pros and Cons of your comment.

I'm with the Cons.

The pricing is certainly a problem and quality too.  I have a new relationship to inform my wife about with my regular conversations with a Lionel Repair Tech to get the items to function as described (Thanks GRJ).  I accept that I'm not in a cheap hobby (my wife isn't quite there yet) but its time to push back on some of their decisions and strategies.
