As I have four calls into Lionel service and 3 into Charles Ro on this matter, I guess I am a broken record to them. Am trying to stay optimistic.

See the featured message on the J at the top of the forum. Ryan addresses this in his last post. Sounds like they are rerunning the shells.

Item #3 on his follow-up post.  I'm glad he mentioned it.  I believe my post asking was removed, but he must have seen it prior.  He did address it, and I now am 100% satisfied.  Returning for a refund was not an option.  I can't seem to get cash to run around the layout.  Trains do much better.

I'm happy with this as well.  Looking forward to it being in the consist next year.

Marty,

I assume the consist headed by that beautiful Bi-Polar you received a month or so ago?  If you are at York next October we have to meet.  We have been dogging this forever since the 1st posting.  I as well as you, feel much better.

I'm not that knowledgeable about collection value - never bought any trains for anything other than running them and having fun, but with a limited amount of these cars being produced as "mistakes", is it possible these could be a rare item in the distant future and therefore valuable?

I'm glad Ryan addressed this as well.  It makes me feel a lot better about my preorders in the new catalog.

Not to sound like a naysayer, but, mistakes must be very rare to make collectability.  Also, low number in quantity.  I think there were enough produced that the market would not appreciate in value.  I know there are people out there with upside down lettering etc. and they don't seem to hold the value in high esteem.  I'm glad they are going to make them right.  As far as collectability, we will see, especially if they don't want the wrong shells returned.  Then the auction sites will tell.

I still think it would be helpful if Ryan (or somebody) would come out and address the issue of the RPOs squarely. I realize he said in the other thread the RPOs were being remade in Korea. Does that mean they are being “remade” by offering shells to existing owners?  Will they be free or will there be a cost to replacing them?  What is the timing?  I agree that hearing something today is better than the previous silence, but I still have no tangible idea as to what is going on and this thing has been lingering since the fall. I’m okay being patient for as long as necessary, but it would be great to have a little communication as to how long my patience is to be necessary. 

I still think that you need to send your product back to your store or distributor so they can can hopefully send it back to Lionel.  If Lionel does not receive any or very little quantity back, why would they care to produce any more if there is little or no problems that they receive in returns.  Hopefully I did the correct choice in returning mine back. I have no idea if Charles Ro will return it to Lionel or try and resale it as well.  But am hoping they send it back to Lionel to make a statement.

These qa/qc problems are ridiculous in trying to sustain the hobby or product line.
