Hi, Anyone else get the wrong Railbox car with your Micro-Trains Northern, Eastern, or Western Grab Bags? I've emailed them asking to exchange with the correct version.There also seems to be a labelling problem, as both the Western and Northern cars are stock numbers ending in 021, and the Eastern ends in 023, according to information on the MTL website.

HoboTim - Thu 17 Nov - 09:42

SO! What are the actual instructions to print the containers in 1:220" scale? :)

HoboTim - Thu 17 Nov - 09:40

Sorry for the rant but I have tried these instructions on several computers. Personal and work and still the instructions make no sense!

HoboTim - Thu 17 Nov - 09:32

The instructions make No sense. Click? Is that Right or Left CLICK? Save-as? I get no actual SAVE-AS! And Print Exact Size! What printer do I need that will offer me that option????
