Seems like all I'm getting is the US Army 0-4-0 and the Railway Cannon. That CSX F40ph is super tempting but I would only be getting one of the engines and all of my other engines and rolling stock are traditional sized so that probably wouldn't work out all too well. At least the 4 wheeler is already a small engine so that should blend in """fine""".

I have a few things already preordered from the new Catalog!

Will the safety valve steam be moved away from the whistle steam so it doesn’t blend together? Or think it would take away from the accuracy of the train too much?

I know that, my point was that they’re basically on top of each other.

I don’t think it’ll be too big of an issue since the safety valve steam effect won’t be constantly on. I have a Legacy Pennsylvania S1 duplex with the safety valve effects on it and it only randomly pops off every once in awhile. The effect itself once on last for about 20 or 30 seconds before shutting off again.

So, where should they move whistle steam?  Under the bell?

For the money these things cost, locomotive appliances should be in their proper locations.  Particularly as others have talked about getting other details correct for particular Class A's.

No I like it in the correct spot. I’d just rather have cylinder steam.

This video is why I say that it literally pours out of the cylinders.

32.40 on this video is the safety valve effect. It’s very cool.

Finally settled on one of the Amtrak Phase 3 F40PH's and one of the Phase 4 Cabbages.

Do they match? NOPE. But I like these schemes most.

I missed out on the first run of these in 2016, and after missing out on most of the second run of the B6sb Switchers in 2020 among other locomotives, I'm not letting the same happen again.

I would've liked to preorder more like one of the Berks and the Black River set, but funds right now aren't permitting. I still have the Strasburg no. 90 on order, anyways.

I bought more than I initially thought I would. I pre ordered both of Mr Muffins NKP custom runs (Atlantic and Harry Painted 0-6-0). I also ordered a Class A 1218, a PRR 0-4-0, phase 3 f40ph, and the swift vision line stock cars. Oh! And I decided to take a leap and get the base 3

Much more than I expected, but I talked myself into the class A after I got a great deal on some older NS excursion cars.

Well, I guess I have to order something or I would not be in this hobby.  I always buy from sommerfelds in Butler, WI(Milw). Always fair and they do repairs.  Ordered two of each of GBW rs27.  I know they are MTH tooling, which I had one of but at least now I can run with the Legacysystem.  Still looking at a few other items but these are the top of the list.  Hope with having tooling already maybe Lionel will be able to turn some of these faster(ha ha).  

I pulled the trigger on the Amtrak 6 car Phase III Heritage set.  Skipped the diner as I'm not interested in the sounds but will pick up a K-Line or equivalent and get it painted to match.  Now I have most of what I am looking for on a circa 1990 Broadway Limited.  Still need the baggage / dorm, but I have a donor car that is close with some rework and I am patiently waiting on GGD 2nd run Slumbercoaches.

After picking up the diner (no sound) / coach ATSF expansion set to complete my Santa Fe #42 / 47 I was impressed with the overall build quality of the cars.  That was what put me over the top as this is my first Lionel pre-order.

I ended up going with the Canadian National Veterans ES44AC #3015 and the matching Canadian National - Bay Window Caboose. I also decided to get two of the Canadian Pacific Veteran SD90Mac units, CP #7020 (Army/Solid Green) and CP #7023 (Air Force/Grey on Grey). I already have a MTH Premier CP #7021 (Army/Desert). I am very interested to see how the Lionel versions compare to the MTH in regards to the CP Veteran units.

I'm getting four of the CP military tribute locomotives. I think they are a big hit for Lionel.
