Too bad the plan is not to use the correct tender. I wanted one for my Freedom Train, but will not be ordering one that is not correct. I guess it is back to my original plan of finding one from a Mohawk and making some decals....... If Lionel changes their mind and uses the correct shell, I could live with what ever trucks they put under it.
They don't have the correct tooling Is how Ryan implied it in the video. Sounded like one of those hey we don't have it and ehh it close enough. Mike's has the tooling. Maybe we can petition them to do the right ones for us lol
