I just got my 2012 Vol. 1 Catalog. The R36 World's Fair Subway cars will be Proto 3. The # is 30-20105-1 (Rail King). They look fantastic.

The only frawback is that in order to complete the 6 car set (2 Car Add-On), you must buy Premier 20-98868 and 20-98869. These are the add on cars on flatbeds.

Anyone know if the cars are LED equiped?

From what I understand all powered PS3 equipment is LED equipped. Whether the non-powered cars will have bulbs or LEDs is to been seen.

Why do we want this set as a PS3? I'm not sure I understand the advantages over PS2.

PS3 has to have LED's No bulbs Biggest advantages of PS3 1- No Battery Smaller size 6x more memory so better sound files are possible In the case of subways that may mean more stops.

According to the 2012 Volume 1 Catalog, the Proto 3 is, "......the only onboard digital sound and control package that allows users to operate their locomotives in conventional or command mode using AC and DCC. Most of our Premier Line offerings are equiped with our Proto-Scale 3-2 feature which allows the locomotives to operate on 3 or 2 rail track with just the flip of a switch."

Ready to Roll is my "local" train store. Best prices that i've found, and a great bunch of train guys. I'll be ordering the R36 set from them.

Charlie is always in the game.... and he always gets his orders from Mike... none of the BS you sometimes get from other dealers that cannot fill your order..
