Sheesh...so many options! 😨
I've got to say that I'm very leery of the Chinese made Lionel items. My brother just recently received his preordered SP passenger cars, all 9 of them, and the quality control is the worst I've even seen in Lionel. Every car had flaws and damage. If Lionel doesn't stop having stuff made in China they're going to loose a huge market share. My brother and I will NEVER pre-order another Lionel item!
Does anyone know when Lionel started having China manufacture their products?
The bottom line for me is this...I want the Madison style passenger cars I buy to be made some place other than china.
