Reply to "New METCA Milk Cars - Riverside, Brookside & Renken"

The new easy to convert truck design was brought out the same time Lionel introduced the Lionscale product line in 2016. The intent of these new truck designs was to make the cars easier to convert to scale couplers or 2 rail O scale. That said all good intentions but doesn't excuse the new mediocre at best half metal half plastic trucks and couplers currently being used. Hope Lionel goes back to installing the articulating metal couplers.

Peter:

Correct, but as the old saying goes: "The road to h**l is paved with good intentions." Weak excuse anyway. Both MTH and ATLAS were able to figure out the "easy conversion" issue without downgrading their 3-rail trucks and couplers, but not Lionel.
