I understand the colors are sometimes off, however in my opinion it would be better to miss darker on a high end legacy model. Some of those great northern steamers have come out as pale light green. Also, color chip samples can sometimes be deceiving based on lighting and substrate. I believe the coach cars, baggage, and e8 from my B&M set were all made in different factories hence the different shades of red. Coordination among the factories wouldn't be a bad thing. Just my thoughts. I’m sure manufacturing a high end model train from halfway around the world during a global pandemic is quite a challenge. I am grateful for Lionel's hard work and I hope they can resolve the color issues.
