    That's really kind of sad when you think about it.

    That's true of a lot of companies though. Most companies don't put a value on corporate memory. The company I work for couldn't care less about a lot of things that happened six months ago, let alone something from years ago--unless a really big customer asks about it, and then, by golly, Dave had better remember everything about that incident that happened in 1997, even though his first day with the company was in 2005!

    And Lionel's history makes that especially likely, since it isn't really the same company that it was prior to 1969. The original Lionel Corporation sold off its train line in 1969, and sold off its archives along with it. Then the original Lionel Corporation became a toy store company, and the company that became the modern-day Lionel, LLC became a division of General Mills.

    I'm gonna try to get some video this weekend.
    The Marx doesn't seem to be handling the incline too well which is really suprising me.
