Don't have a cow... 

Seriously, look at all the February and March dates.  March is almost gone and February has past.  With Lionel and hobby shops closed, nothing's shipping anyway.  Even if the factories are up and running, they're probably not at 100% output yet and who knows when they will be.

Plus, given the situation since January, the schedule is probably pretty much out the window anyway.

If that is true Rusty, why in the world post an obviously defunct schedule?

When was the last time a delivery schedule was accurate? 

As long as Lionel and others are shut down, the point is moot and things aren't going to go back to normal at the snap of the fingers or click of a keyboard.  When things finally "normalize," it will take time to return to pre C-19 operations.

Frankly, right now I could care less about what I have on order and am more concerned that my local grocery stores get their supply chains back to normal (they are, slowly) and I don't have to stand six feet away from anyone.

Anyone noticed that the schedule hasn't been updated in over 2 months now? The Bush Funeral train was slated for June 2020 availability, but no one's seen hide nor hair. I'm wondering if the shipping schedule is showing  when the containers are loaded onto the ships--not when they're due to arrive at dealers. Does anyone happen to know?

Better check your info.  People have the Bush Funeral train in their hands … at least some people started to receive them this week.  Better check when your dealer will be shipping yours.  The ship date indicated is the estimate of when the items ship out of Lionel's warehouse in North Carolina.

Thanks so much quick reply! I’ll call the dealer tomorrow-I hadn’t heard a thing from them and last I checked in with them a couple of weeks ago the jury was still out. Thanks also for the insight re the dates reflecting shipping out of NC. Great to know!

Right, it was about 2 months ago but that was a fairly comprehensive update, especially given Lionel's track record on schedules. This current schedule has just about everything (notice I say just about) that's been cataloged through 2020, Volume 1. As usual, the end of the calendar year is top (bottom?)  heavy with lots of arrivals.
