Just Wondering

I was wondering if it might not be a good option for Accucraft to offer their engines in a "Custom tuned version"? When someone places their order they could take their chances on getting a good runner, or pay extra upfront and be assured that it would be. There are other products that are offered this way, why not Accucraft Loco's. If you are mechanically inclined and like to tinker you can take your chances with what is right of the assembly line, and if not up to par, get it running right yourself. If not, (Like me) it would be well worth the extra money charged to get a well tuned runner right out of the box. As it is now, if you have problems you spend a lot of time and shipping expense to and from Accucraft for warranty work, let alone the chances you take with the shippers messing up your prized Loco in route. I think many would be happy to pay more to get a good runner up front and avoid the hassles down the road. What do you think? :)

...You guys need to elect pollies that work for you.

Aye, there's the rub.


Please,........Please,..............Lets not let this turn into a political debate.
If'n everybody would just do it MY way, there would be no debate! :D
OK, I'm really lost.

Would somebody please explain how this string got diverted from a discussion on the minimum acceptable level of out of the box quality to Blazing Saddles?

I don't even recall this “Western” movie even having the minimum requirements of including a 2 second shot of steam locomotive although the first scene had a hand car getting stuck in quicksand (don’t ask if you somehow were not alive in 1977 or have never otherwise seen this movie).

Perhaps me being lost has something to do with the fact that the second picture on Page 4 holds my attention to the extent that and I am unable to read the remaining posts on Page 4 and follow the discussion logic, or lack there of.

Would somebody please post something on Page 5 to set my rerailing frogs on this discussion. It sucks to be derailed so easily by big set of (you get the idea).

Do you believe that "Blazing Saddles" had the minimal acceptable quality level "out of the box"?

Sorry my fault, I thought Blazing Saddles did have a train shot in it. It was a western.

Charles T.

Well, it was out of the can, but yes. After all it was a Mell Brooks film.
Thread drift isn't all that uncommon Tom. Things get off track (no pun intended) a little as folks try and have a little fun. It'll get back on topic assuming there's anything left to say. Otherwise it'll simply die off.
Just wondering.... a title that matches the visuals

Maybe having to do with guys getting all "steamed up" about a well equipped loco, in a symbolic way, given that most refer to their engines as "she" was very impressive under steam... when summarizing their day of running around.
