I am serious in my thanks to Dave Olsen for moving the pick-up rollers apart more on the new Big Boy Oil Burning Tender to accommodate my Atlas O #5 switches. I have often not had pleasant things to say about the many repairs my new Lionel engines and passenger cars needed.
Praise when good things are done is as important as criticism, when bone-headed blunders occur. At some point, and soon, I hope praise will be all I have to give Lionel. But, and it's a big butt, I know the endless Chinese blunders are keeping me up at night. I've invested big in Lionel engines, 21" passenger cars, etc. like many others. The parade of issues is just unbelievable. It must stop.
I can't wait to see my two Hudsons from Pat's Trains and Mr. Muffins.
Sincerely, John Rowlen
