Reply to "Video of Dave & Ryan's 2020 Flyer catalog review now up on the American Flyer Facebook page"

Lionel posted the 2020 catalogue on Monday. The video showed up two days later. Dave and Ryan were headed up to Springfield shortly after the video to set up for a weekend exhibition at the Amherst train show. I support my hobby by doing contract work making or editing videos for an engineering company, and  just the edits can take over a week for a presentation that lasts only an hour.  There wasn't much of a window for Dave and Ryan to squeeze a "professional" job into their schedule. 

I watched the video twice, the second time just to see what some people were complaining about. I learned even more the second time and appreciated two things in particular: 1) learning the back story behind some of Lionel's decisions; and 2) that Lionel devoted a significant amount of time to American Flyer in its own separate section.  Two years ago Dave posted a lot of information about the proposed Legacy Berkshire locomotive on this site, and that convinced me to place a pre-order shortly after. In this video he mentioned the working Mars light not mentioned in the catalogue (although it does appear on the picture of the American Railroads version).  This kind of information is invaluable, and the fact that they got it done and posted just before a trade show is impressive. I agree completely with Ed Boyle's view. We heard from the guys who have done the work, not from actors reading from a teleprompter.
