Title: Bachmann Sales/ Marketing Check Out The OGR Forum For Recent Product Suggestions
Post by: Custom Mike on March 04, 2009, 02:16:36 AM
I really want to buy your products I think they have a great attraction.  I want nicely detailed locomotives that run smooth and are reliable without the electronics to break at of course a lower price point.  The only thing holding me back from spending money on your products is the lack of details.  I know it is hard to balance cost vs detail etc. but I just can not get past the stamped handrails.  This is just me and I am not knocking your product or anyone who owns your product.   I know however that others feel as I do.  If it is at all feasible and you can hold the line on pricing can you please up the detail a little namely getting rid of the stamped handrails.  I just want to have fun running an engine where I don't have to worry about the electronics breaking.  I'll even go without the cruise control feature for a no hassle engine at a lower price point.  Thank you for listening.

Might be hard on present stuff, see 2010 cat thread.  New stuff:  YES.

But i do like the idea that you don't have to worry about handrails in operation!  Or, at least if they are of the present type, at leat make the cross sections of metal smaller.  At least it would help looks without having to redo the older stuff.

Here is a thread I started on OGR Forum, and thus came onboard this forum thanks to the referal from Allan at OGR.  Lots of product suggestions followed.

Hi NSthoroughbred,

We monitor the OGR and other forums for ideas and comments all of the time. Some are good ideas and we may elect to do some of them.

Which ones? You will have to wait and see.

Regards,
