Any word on S Berks?

Are there new S Berkshires in the pipeline? Recent interviews indicated the old S scale Berkshires were merely placed in the new catalogs to help dealers clear out old on-hand inventory (which I don't believe supported the bluetooth technology). I think L is expecting new O Gauge LC+ Berkshires soon, but this is the first I've heard of a new run of S Gauge ones.

They're in the Volume 2 2017 O gauge catalog, way in the back.

Lionel sold out of the original run of FlyerChief Berks. (Ask the folks that pre-ordered but didn't get theirs...)

The new run has the bluetooth incorporated, plus 2 road numbers for the Nickle Plate and Pere Marquette Berks.

The Flyer Berks were air-shipped yesterday. Should be here sometime next week and then they'll start being sent out. Should be in time for Christmas! 

The Polar set version won't ship for a couple more weeks, but hopefully will arrive in time.

Dave,

What happened to the Berks?  Were they skyjacked?

Ha, no. They were in our warehouse last week. They should be shipping to dealers now if they're not already there.
