Well, I'll add my thoughts to this LOOOONG thread. I have a BB, I wanted to support S (and back then I had a regular job) and encourage Big L to continue to invest in S. Yes, it's not perfect, but then most of my stuff isn't, but my disappointment was mostly with the overly-wide trailing truck and tender trucks. They don't even clear ACG action rails--you'd think Big L would check that out before production. Then when the Challengers came out I held out hope that a "conversion kit" might be made by offering the Challenger's trailing truck and tender to BB owners. Those two changes would make a major improvement in the BB. Of course, Big L is only interested in selling current production--and limited production at that, no real thought seems to be made to prior production (except noting what didn't sell). It seems the Polar Express may still be in production, if so, this MIGHT be a sign of change?
