Lionel 6-28306 GE Evolution Hybrid ES44AC

Looking for a Lionel GE Evolution Hybrid ES44AC (6-28306).  I know there were some running on ebay last December, but they were pretty expensive.  Really want one. Please let me know if you know of anyone that may have one for sale.

Thanks, Michael

Does anyone know how to find out the production run on the Lionel GE ES44AC Evolution Hybrid 6-28306?  I'm planning on selling mine with the 3 Car Ethanol Tank 6-27410 and would like to get an idea on how much it may be worth.  Last one I seen for sell went for over $1100 for just the engine alone.

Michael,

A word to the wise.....Last October at York, I was given a price on the CP Version that came out after the the 6-28306.  The price was $550.00 and the seller stated it was Mint.  I went for my credit card in my truck and intermitently ended up in the dealer hall first before I was going back to make the purchase.  I spoke to a "DEALER" who is an authorized Lionel seller and he explained to me.....the Evolution Hybrids "COULD" be troublesome....and if I purchased one from a seller who is NOT an authorized lionel dealer...there was NO  warranty.  I assume his information was factual because other members with me said the same thing.  Needless to say, I passed on the CP Hybrid.  For what it's worth...I had to pass this info to you.  Perhaps some of  the members here could update this information if I am in error?  Regards,

Larry Williams

I haven't even seen anything that said they were troublesome for all the research I did at least for the 6-28306.  I'm the original ower of the one I own and know everything works on mine since I had to test it out when I first got it of course I don't have a ton of track time on the engine. LOL have to play with a new toy.  I'm most likely going to sell it to the one guy that offered me $1200 for the engine and the 3 car ethonal vision line cars.  That way I can buy another 1911 handgun.

I bought one off a guy here new never ran mine was fine.  

Just in case it's relevant, (1) I've never had any operating issues with my Lionel GE Hybrid although it did ship with rusty wheels like a lot of them did; and (2) the MTH version will have the chasing light feature but not the Vision "sleeptime" or smoke technology, which are very cool in operation. Also I think that the MTH version is a less accurate model of the protoype than the Lionel (but I've got one on order anyway).

Splitting up is hard to do.  But sometimes it is the only way toward good mental health...

 

Whoops.  Too many college psych exams in my past.

 

But seriously, my e-mail is in my profile.  If you want some quick healthy cash, I've been yearning for the tank cars for awhile and will reduce your life's clutter for you.

 

Cheers.
