Leland Detroit - Please!
A nice pic of the ever-elusive Leland Detroit Monorail. In the last month, I have seen two go up on eBay and one at Stout Auctions. All well over the $2k mark (one over $4k).
Enough is enough - Lionel & MTH, are you listening? Please build this, tons of people will buy it and you will continue to make money if you evolve this product - track, switches, electronics, people, stations and accessories. The reason this product is so sought after is because it is:
1) Unusual and unique.
2) Downright fun.
3) Has a timeless design that makes it forever cool.
4) Looks great on almost any layout (except maybe an O gauge high rail layout of a freight
This is a product with a ton of unrealized potential that needs to get picked up by a manufacturer and made. The reason the originals have lasted so long is because they are made out of non-cheap, not easy to destroy materials like METAL!
Can someone please make these so I can buy a new set (along with about 10,000 other collectors and operators)?
