Great, it's the late 1900's again..... Personaly, I don't own anything related to lionel (except a clock that's train themed), but Lionel was the headliner of model trains back in the golden age and the Baby Boom. I agree with whoever first said that Lionel should be moved back here. They tried cheap labor some time ago in Mexico actualy. They moved back to the good 'ol US of A because of EXACTLY the same problems right now. Bring back Richard Khugn (Hope I spelled that right, if not, sorry Richard ), he was the guy who helped bring Lionel out of it's problem with that cereal company. At least let this 100 year old company have its grandur again.
