Lionel should sue MTH, because the bottom line is MTH is making Lionel Trains. Lionel has been here since 1900. Just look at some of there lamp posts, they are pre war lionel lamp posts.

That is right, Mike Wolf has been ripping off Lionel post and pre-war products. This was due to his inside access to Lionel as a former employee. I know he can't be sued, however I personally have stopped buying MTH since the lawsuit. I don't know if I will ever buy MTH products. Hey, Mike I am 38 and have many more years of buying trains. Thanks for listening to "US" You should have taken an economics class. I am exercising consumer sovereignty. You have become the DIXIE CHICK of 027&O gauge trains. Will you ever learn? This is coming from someone who bought alot of MTH trains when Lionel was sitting on their hands after Richard Kughn left the helm. Also try putting items in your catalog that can be shipped in a year or less. Some MTH loyalists are jumping ship because some catalog items are never made or shipped at all and the items you do produce take at least 1 year or more to receive. Mr. Wolf , I bet you won't listen at all.
