Lionel just released a 200 page catalog filled with more stuff in that one catalog then I can get in a lifetime. Post MTH, I think that catalog only gets bigger with more good stuff for all of us. Foot stomp... stomp...stomp...stomp The hobby is going to be OK after MTH. There will be more locomotives for you to purchase then your wallet can cover. Don't worry
Now there's a point I can agree with you on... "There will be more locomotives for you to purchase then your wallet can cover."
Especially true as I won't be paying those prices. Yet another benefit of true competition... price pressure and options (read... RailKing vs. Premier vs. LionChief vs. Lionmaster vs. vs. vs.)
