Reply to "New Lionel catalog, what will you order?"

I may be interested in the Frisco 4500. However I have visited the prototype in Tulsa numerous times and I am  concerned that I will be disappointed when the Lionel Model arrives.

I’m sure you are only getting a blue paint  job on a generic 4 8 4 so more than likely l will pass on purchasing one.

The $1,599 retail price is approaching the price of a highly detailed prototypical correct brass model.
