Arrived today.  There are certain events you never forget and can remember exactly where you were when they happened.  The assassination of President Kennedy, 9/11, and, Apollo 11 landing on the moon.  IMO this boxcar captures the essence of that event and I'm glad I can include it in my collection.

Looks great! I’m waiting for the one I ordered from LHS.

Great that these are out for the anniversary day. Although this must be easier for Lionel to get out since there is a limited qty and made in USA.

Lionel turned my order around in less than a week. It really is a stunning car. I have the other Smithsonian space related car. Super pair to display and run.

Got mine today. Ordered it from Lionel last Saturday, nice turn time. I was 9 years old then and last night I watched the CBS rebroadcast of the launch day on YouTube and I remembered so much of it it was uncanny.

I don't believe the dealers have them in yet. I have one on order from Just Trains and haven't received a phone call to pick it up yet.

It looks like Ro & Trainworld are still taking orders an their web site.

I'm wondering if Lionel is running off a second batch.  Trainworld is taking backorders for and August delivery.

I believe they list items that are not in stock yet as "Taking Backorders". If you look at items from the Lionel 2019 Vol 2 cat., they all show as  "Taking Backorders". I would call to confirm.

It looks like only people that ordered directly from Lionel have received their car so far.

From the picture above I can see where the printer is advancing through the print job. You have to look hard but it's there.  Unfortunately that's the way it is on this type of printing process but I think that could be improved.  I still think these are nice looking cars regardless.  I have one on order.
