Atlas turnouts with the wrong joiners

All,

Has anyone else noticed that lately some of the Atlas C55 turnouts come with C80 joiners in the package?  It's not an insurmountable problem but it is quite annoying.

Yup

last fall...  i had 2 packs as well

there is a date code in black stamped on the back of the blister pack...

i don't know the translation for it, but when i spoke to PG @ Atlas he confirmed it.

I had 10 with the C80s. Sent Atlas an email and was sent replacements at n/c. I guess I have to take back all the bad things I said.

Yep, had a bunch of them--in 2003.
