turtle7: Thanks for more memories. There was a charming lady in her Golden Years who owned an old fashioned bonified record shop in Ennis, TX. I still have the 45rpm's I purchased from hern and when I spin on on my "Victrola" (LOL) it takes me back to the times I'd visit with her. She didn't only sell music but always gave away a free smile with every purchase I made! Northern Maine? Sounds like you lived in a part of the US where you could enjoy watching the trains of both BAR and the CPR International of Maine Division do their stuff?
A question for all: Who, in your opinion tops the list for delivering damaged goods: USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, or someone else?
I don't have any statistics but DHL operations in Germany doesn't appear to be swamped with complaints, however if you are "in the know" please advise.

It’s not just about the packaging problem but the quality problems that have already been done at the factory, trucks in the wrong places and so on... Shipping back and forth for each defective locomotive costs me about 180 Euros (Finland-USA-Finland). I think the manufacturer should pay those costs, not the customer.
