Went to pick up my U-33 this week and expected to pick up the Rio Pass 3 car set as well. As always I pre order everything through my local hobby shop. My dealer then proceeded to tell me they were "shorted" and this was a problem all over. They tried calling other distributors etc..but to no avail. I called Ro and some of the other bigger shops and of course noone has them. Is this a problem in other areas? Has anyone else been shorted? Is there any explanation for it.....Of course I own the engines and 2 previously released cars, which fires me up even more... I did send an email to Lionel, but no answer as of yet. Any insight you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated.
