Notice regarding train set splitting

We are receiving complaints from customers that items sold in recently released train sets are being sold separately and as a result items are being damaged in transit from the dealer to them as they are being sold without adequate packaging. The individual components are designed to fit into specially designed foam trays within each box to hold each of the items securely.
