Has anyone received a refund yet?

I sent my trains in a few days after the announcement and haven't heard back. Has anyone else?

Maybe if this and other American companies actually made their products in America this would quit happening. They take American products and manufacture them in China with no regard to American standards or laws. I can't believe they can get with this time after time. Why are we allowing imports that do not meet our standards and laws? Our leaders need to be more concerned with it's citizens safety than dollar signs.

I received a call and they are not offering me a refund but a replacement. I bought the replacement engines and would like a refund now and they say it is not one of the options. I am not impressed.

I did not receive the full amount for my shipping cost either. I am still waiting for the trains. It's been well over 8 weeks.
