This has certainly been an exciting week in railroading and a thrill for any of us in the hobby. Don't worry, we're taking lots of notes back here and have "boots on the ground" gathering more information for us for a lot of upcoming announcements. But while the "big locos" are getting all the attention, we've got another date-appropriate new product announcement to make!
We've been dropping plenty of hints, so I don't think there is too much doubt as to what's behind the blue curtain on Lionelstore.com - but even if you've been following closely, I promise you'll see some new surprises tomorrow! Since our soft announcement at the National Toy Train Museum last month, we have made some amazing upgrades and with the help of new historical data will have the most accurately decorated models of these famous locomotives ever produced. To get the most information possible, you're best source will be our Facebook Live presentation tomorrow morning (5/10) at 9 AM Eastern. (That will give you all plenty of time to pop your next bowl of popcorn for the other big events out west later that day!) I've got a lot of great new information to cover, so please join in! The video will be available on Facebook afterwards for review, and I'm sure someone will be kind enough to copy a link or upload here as well for those who don't Facebook.
Happy railroading everybody!
Thanks for notifying the forum about the announcement. I would not have been aware without your post. I think it's great when you and Dave engage with the group here. Inevitably, there will always be a vocal minority of detractors that probably don't have first hand experience with your products anyway.
The 4-4-0s look great and I'm happy to see that you guys are producing them.
