Nope, last one I got was on an On3 Durango & Silverton narrow gauge layout. I suppose that one will be next.

I got one a couple years ago...IMO it's a rather sleazy way to do business to send someone crap they didn't order and expect them to pay for it or send it back. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crazy.gif   So I asked the Postmaster about it, he said that since it was sent unsolicited that I was under absolutely NO obligation to pay for it OR to return it....so I didn't. I'd rather hoped that enough others would do the same that they would stop that nonsense.

Like Mik, I hate this unethical sort of marketing and I make it a point never to (a) pay or (b) send the stuff back.

Anybody remember Columbia Records (the pioneers of this sleaze)?  Blaagh! /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sick.gif  (spit)

I remember well the controversy that this little marketing stunt created here at MLS back then. I still have mine, but never opened it. The DVD sits on shelf, still sealed, to this day. Don't know what happened to the medalion. I did not remit payment, of course. Didn't ask for that DVD.

Yeah, I agree and as soon as I opened it I read thru and trashed all paper work, So I have a neat little medallion and a how to, the workings on railways, Garden and Real for my kids and me to enjoy. It was awfally nice of them to send me something to do with trains rather than lets say SPORTS:D.
