I saw this on the news the other night..it may be old news because I don't watch very often. They said Union Pacific has won royalty rights to any model produced that bears thier road name as well as other road names that are now defunct because UP bought them and shut them down. A model manufacturing rep (I don't know which mfg) was saying that it added $3-$5 to every items retail price. It sounded like it was a done deal rather than one in process. Anyone know about this? Seems silly..but litigation is many folks bread basket.
