I have that same B&O set preordered along with the GM&O, Illinois Central, and Union Pacific passenger sets. None of them have delivered yet. Deep breaths!
When my friends heard MTH was doing a G,M&O passenger set they all thought he was FINALLY doing F units in Red and Maroon with streamlined cars. They were sooo excited!
When they saw it was a rehash of the Red and Silver scheme they all said "What the heck" (or something similar;-) and didn't order one. Hope MTH makes all these sets and doesn't drop the ball like Lionel did with the 18" aluminum cars at the end so you get your sets.
