Thanks, Joe. That is a Lionel offering from around 2019. It is an FA cab car. Here is the other end - a C-420. I don’t remember what they called it, but my little consist (including 2 21” passenger cars), is supposed to represent the short trains taking people out to the east end.

Paul, I'm on Long Island for Thanksgiving with the kids.  I was in Trainland Yesterday and saw the FAs up on the wall.  Like I said, I've been out of the new train market for a while and don't even get catalogs any more so I hadn't seen those FAs before. I believe you're talking about the Greenport Scoot.

Ding... Ding... Ding... Give that man a cigar It was definitely the Scoot I was thinking of. Read about it somewhere and thought I’d make a short version for my layout. Have a great Thanksgiving, Joe.

P.S. I noticed you didn’t say if you BOUGHT anything in Trainland

Well good morning F.E.F. fans, Great pictures all especially since most of us are recovering from too much Turkey! 

My offering today is very humble, it is one of the early Lionel MPC offerings from 1973-74 a simple plastic steam engine that came with a A.T.S.F. slope back tender.  However my operating pictures of this guy will have a (Marx) NYC tender as his original SFe tender is just beyond repair.

Here he is with his original Lionel Tender.  By the way, at 48 years old, this guy still works fine and can pull small trains around my mostly flat layout.

Here he is with his "substitute" Marx tender.  By the way, note the strong similarity in the plastic casting between the Lionel slope back tender of the 1970's and the Marx slope back tender of about the same vintage.  Could they have been trading parts?

Here he is pulling my "air defense" train, complete with missile launching car and a flat full of spare missiles.

Well I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving, if you are driving home please be careful today is one of the most heavy traffic days of the year.  Best wishes ... and ON TO CHRISTMAS

Don
