  12. Correct. When I was at Walkley Yard in July to do the Walkley Yard tour video, I was informed they weren't doing any maintenance on the Talents. The window break was actually caused by the summer heat and pressure blowing it out. They are nice trains, it is too bad. I don't have anything against the LINTs but the Talents were more upscale in their design and interior.
