Do you guys think these cars will still have the Kadee coupler pads as the MTH versions did? And will the MTH 2 rail trucks fit these cars? There is always a possibility that Lionel will change stuff right? Just wondering.
Don't know. I looked at the catalog for these and the later ones in the catalog, no mention on either. Also popped on YouTube to review what they said about them on the Ryan & Dave show, no mention. I would suggest email Ryan or Dave to see if they can answer this. Either that or tag them here to see what they say if they reply.
