Am I wrong in thinking that Bachmann and Model Power are the same company? Their packaging looks kind of similar and I've been given the impression that the two are interchangable as far as track goes. What's the story? I just bought an HO Model Power set for my daughter for Christmas. It seems like a nice enough little train and it was cheap enough that it will be no great financial loss if she breaks it. (Of course, she will have Daddy's supervision most of the time but little kids like to get into stuff they shouldn't when we're not looking. ) I know she's gonna love it though. She thinks running my O27 is the coolest thing in the world so having her own train to run should thrill her.
