I have to admit...a little disappointed with this year's offerings. I was hoping for some passenger cars or a different locomotive...seems as if each year it's the same old stuff to include graphics. Perhaps they have limited wiggle room due to the smaller company foot print. Missed opportunity for a growing section of the hobby. Anybody dong a special run?

Yes!   The same old same old.... gondolas w/ pumpkins & ghosts, voltmeter & regular boxcars.     This does not give me much hope for their 2024 Christmas cars.  I'm expecting the, what 30th, 35th version of their flat cars w/ LED Christmas trees, more nativity flatcars & (like Halloween) another diesel/LED caboose offering. 

As someone that order the Halloween F19 I was really hoping for some great cars to pull behind it.  I did begrudgingly order 2 sets of the wood sided Halloween passenger cars, that pricing was scarier than the cars, to pull behind it hoping to fill it in with some Halloween cars.  I just don't see anything there jumping out from any of the manufacturers so it maybe time to get creative.

Wow, Marty.  Even two sets of the Lionel Halloween coach two-packs are a lot.  I see that Charlie Ro lists them at $375 EACH!

BTW everyone:  Sunrise started this thread focusing on MTH's new Halloween offerings, but its been hijacked into a Lionel-based thread somehow.

I actually really like the graphics on the volt meter car...also the "mad" scientist on the boxcar...maybe an unpopular opinion, but I'm a fan.  Definitely would like to see some variance though when it comes to the engine...a spooky Halloween steamer would be cool.
