So it appears that the information that traditional smaller, less expensive O gauge stuff would only be on-line was faulty?  The 44 Tonners at $250 MSRP seem like good value.  The ZW-L is now close to $1000 dollars MSRP.  Thomas set which was 200 bucks is now 250 bucks.  That's a big increase.  Glad I already have a ZW-L .  Like Marty, I'll be ordering the Cab 3 base.

I also notice the American Flyer catalog, while small compared with the 250 page O gauge behemoth, is 44 pages.  Should please someone, I'd hope.

This catalog suggests that Lionel's financial health is,  as stated, reasonably good to great.  You don't plan for this huge product variety and amount of innovation if you are the equivalent of Lionel in 1968.  This catalog speaks to optimism and ambition, not doom and gloom.  Good news for the hobby considering the loss of K-Line, Weaver and the downsizing of MTH.

No, the information was correct. The hard copies of the catalog only contain the higher end scale stuff whereas the digital version contains both scale and traditional.

So is the Safety steam the "New Feature to be announced" on the N&W Class A? Also, why does the Min Curve say O54 on page 16, but O72 on the previous page?  Typo?

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the new BIG announcement was being able to address the engine with 4 digits as opposed to 2.   Other engines have already had variations on where steam sprays out of the engine or tender.

Another notable feature is that I believe he said there was a speaker in the engine… I don’t think that’s been done before?

There are a couple of videos fromLionel on YouTube in regards to the new engine and the CAB3. They don’t go into too much depth but they do a high-level overview of the features.
