Again Chinese crap. America must bring back our own manufacturing so we can get good stuff. I am into model trains and have Bachmann stuff. I assumed it was still American only to learn it had been bought out by Kader which is Chinese. I read an article written by a guy who used to work there. In it he was in a meeting with the Chinese head honchos and he was complaining about not being able to get parts for customer repairs. According to him, he was told flat out that they don't believe in making parts to repair, that they make the crap cheap enough that when it has a problem their attitude is the customers can just buy a new one. But of course they don't make the models we want anymore.
