Lionel Fall Catalog

Since Lionel is releasing a Fall 2013/2014 preview/2013 Vol 2 catalog on Wed., I wonder if any S scale is contained in it? Last year S scale was in the back of Vol 2 and not a stand alone catalog like in the spring.

According to the O Gauge side, there's five pages of Flyer in the back.  Whether there's anything new or just previously cataloged stuff there remains to be seen.

 

I would expect two of those pages would be a reprise of the Berkshire sets, this time with pricing information, so that leaves three pages for other things.

Yep, probably more exciting make believe, non prototypical artwork that apparently all Flyer people are craving for, just like the 'O' gauge clan!!

Here's what's in it, kiddies:

 

 

Zzzzz.

Ah well... though I'm not into the modern diesels or traditional AF, I would propose that Lionel is to be commended for bringing some new items to S scale over the past couple years.  Yay Lionel.

 

Perhaps us Old Farts that model the 50's, 60's, etc will like what Mikey's going to offer in his brand-spankin' new (to him) S line once he's up to speed?

 

Go Mikey.

CTT did an interview with Mike a couple months ago. He mentioned that there was a lot of interest in their S gauge line, but that the market would dictate their pace. So basically, anyone that wants MTH to make newly tooled S gauge product had better start buying these early SHS reissues. It sure sounds like if they don't see the orders come rolling in that new tooling is unlikely.

I can understand Mikey's "show me the money" attitude.  I'll try to purchase what is good for my layout's theme/era and what I can use.  Only so much money to play with.

 

I think one of the greatest attractions to model railroading, the ability to be individualized, is the greatest weakness in terms of mfg'ers, too much individualism.

 

Ah well, it is what it is.
