this has been going on in my mind for quite awhile now.
with the newer electronics in past 10 years and as they age and parts fail most items are no longer available to return them to as they were delivered status!
so am curious if like the conventional engines of yesteryear!! will someone ever embark on a aftermarket supply for the electronics as well as the regular bits and pieces that could fail or get bent or? so these engines can be around doing 50 years from now as they were delivered to us with all the features working as the post war trains are doing now?
would it be a legal nightmare to even try to create an aftermarket parts supply utilizing the old outdated items needed to manufacture them as we all know patents and licensing is a reality in todays world.
now I intentionally left out the current aftermarket folks making a version of electronics as they are not the original items used on current items being manufactured with todays latest greatest engines of anyone manufacturer.
so what do you all think possibly down the road the younger generation will see this come to fruition??
