As I look at the archived OGR magazines, I remember train meets packed with vendors selling modern era trains. I remember the brass streamlined steam engines from Weaver, the scale passenger cars from K-Line and Williams, unique items from 3rd rail and the plethora of so many things from MTH and Lionel. I am not asking why they are still not being made but am asking what happened to all of those trains made between 2000 and 2010. I just don't see them that frequently at train shows or at auctions including internet auctions. Were they simply discarded in favor of trains with command control? Did they break easily? Or are they hiding in basements and attics?
What do you think (or know)?
