Reply to "Lionel Wabash Bluebird 21" Passenger Set"

Wow, these are really poorly done, given that they are supposed to be scale, and thus prototypical.  Only the paint job looks something like Wabash.  I pre-ordered, trusting Lionel to get them right, but I am returning them.  Lesson learned.  I am pretty tolerant of errors and generic variations grom the prototype, but this is ridiculous.  I will wait for GGD to do them right.  Why couldn't Lionel just copy the K-line domes?  Those were much closer to the correct Budd dome.

I guess we know now, that these Lionel 21" cars are not intended to compete with the Atlas or GGD 21" cars, or even the old K-line 21" cars.  They are scale length fantasy toys.  A big step down from Lionel's own fairly correct 21" Texas Special cars from a few years ago (but those were really reboxed K-line aluminum cars).  I am very disappointed.
