    If Jefferson became a state then it would be great if Micro Trains would do a run of California and Oregon with their new borders ........ otherwise the map just wouldn't make sense. :)


    Slightly different subject ........ I was considering collecting the Presidential series. If anyone is going to get a set then it's all or nothing. Finding President 45 seems to be impossible ........ well not impossible ,,, in the last 3 years I have seen 1 available for US$250 ... Yikes. I wonder if Micro Trains would do a second run of these. There is plenty of most other presidents cars available second hand ..... I'm wondering how many of these would sell if that 1 really difficult to get item became available.

    "Hi, I'm a new, modern astronomer and I'm MUCH smarter than those old ones."

    I have read where they are considering reinstating Pluto as a full-fledged planet.

    To me Pluto will always be a full-fledged planet. If it gets "officially" reinstated, does that mean Micro-Trains will do a Pluto car (and a replacement drawf planet car)? I guess I'll be on the hook for two more cars if that happens.

    If Pluto gets reinstated, that Dwarf Planet star car can be a collectors' item. :ROFLMAO:

    Would it be considered a “misprint” at that point?

    The Pluto car would be like old European box cars or those Christmas trains. With two axles. And like me - Short.

    I never considered Pluto not a planet. Does that make sense?

    :D

    If this is to be believed, the whole solar system set may become a collectors item.

    All kidding aside. I really like the state car and solar system series. I think the periodic table would be cool but at one car a month, I'd end up on the hook for wat, 10 years.......

    Ditto, just cause they say it isn't a planet, doesn't mean you have to listen :) Why we care about Pluto I have no idea, but it appears we do :)

    And the Tungsten, Gold and Plutonium cars would be heavy suckers to carry around. :rolleyes:

    I think the Emotional State Series will come first. Lead-off release going to pre-orders any day now will be Confusion. I'm in!

    [The preceding was entirely fictional.]

    How about a nice compromise ......

    Continue the State series ...... "State of Confusion" , "State of Disappointment" ........

    Wait ! , Wait ! ,,, I may have come up with the next April 1st cars ! What do you think ?

    Such a series would no doubt put the collectors and accumulators in a state of euphoria.
