    Hi Kris,

    I received this from Coyote June 11th. It is on it's way home to you already That's the good news.

    The bad news is, coyote is right. There are some issues with the envie. Coyote was kind enough to send $3 worth of coupons off my wishlist. So, my ins & outs are as follows:
    $3 in -- $3 out
    BP of $1 CT $ added.

    Thanks for the ride. I will leave you feedback.

    Traditional trains are kinda making me sad lately. The plus side, is that I haven't been on many this year (morning sickness had left me with little interest in anything other than sleep and sour candies and some serious family issues were a major focus). So, now that I'm getting back in the game, there are lots of coupons that I haven't seen (both in stores and on trains) which has helped me find stuff on trains. Downside is that for some reason, trains that I have been on or started and have had come home, end up not having much variety at some point. I guess this is why so many people are running/riding VWTs. I've gotten complaints about some of my riders on more recent Traditional Trains this year, but really, once it gets past the first rider or two, it can go down hill really quickly. Not always intentionally from riders etc. It's so frustrating! Especially since historically, I've loved running trains! I've really been left wondering what the deal is? Canada Post can't be blamed (although sometimes mail times are weird). Perhaps the nice weather has peoples' attention split and focus isn't on couponing? (as I'm staring longingly at the sunny outdoors wondering why the heck I'm inside scouring flyers!). I dunno. K, sorry, that's my rant. I've been wondering about this so long though so catching up reading on this thread prompted the typing vent!

    PS - sorry about missing pulling the May expiries. I thought I'd gotten them all but I guess I missed some

    thanks for the update.... im feeling the saddness as well, i love running trains and in the past was nice to get these trad trains back with even a few good coupons for myself now they come back with junk and thats if they even come back. half of my trad trains dont seem to even make it back to me anymore. also when there is a problem with the train riders instantly go on the defensive(i mean somebody is not following the rules,but half wont let me know then its to late) and im really starting to wonder why bother anymore. even boarding passes come back expired!
    it sucks cause they can be sooo fun to run....

    Yep - I got lambasted by some riders and a mod a few months ago because I had too many trains on the go and they weren't making it back to me. So frustrating because most of the riders are all great! But, how is it my fault if it gets lost between riders? I can't control that! Plus, how do you determine which rider is telling the truth or what happened if one rider says 'yes, I absolutely sent it out' and the next rider says 'I've never received it.' Aside from putting minimum trade rating requirements when boarding, and checking their FB from other members, how do you vet a potential rider? I don't want to require people to have trade ratings of something stupid like 100 to board, because that's not fair to newer members (which we've all been at one point!). Plus, a bunch of my trains have gotten stuck between 2 highly ranked members! Arggh! So annoying. I'm just going to cut back on the trains I'm running and hope that people are able to follow the rules. So ridiculous though - what are we supposed to do? Send everything via Express Post with tracking numbers? lol
