FYI, our local Botanic Garden RR recently sent in several engines for repairs. They sent them to LGBoA, Aristo-Craft, and USA Trains. The LGB Genesis (sent in for repair) was returned with the comment "no parts" and the box looked like it had not been opened by them. We selected the Genesis for repair as it is the latest production LGB engine. Aristo-Craft advised they have repaired our SD-45 for "free". USA Trains repaired our SD40-2 for $10. Guess what brands they will be running in the future.....
