Starting this to hopefully gain some information as we go along.

Really intrigued by the new John Bull sets and have seen a handful of others say the same. I especially like the looks of the Uncle Sam version. Could be quite attractive.

Other than what's in the catalog (not much) and the fact that these operate conventionally, don't know a lot. The build materials, motor, couplers, etc. Hoping we'll learn more from Lionel, especially before the preorder deadline.

Also, feel free to weigh in. I'm listening!

Got a link to the video about this?  I love these older locomotives, but being conventional really disappoints me.  If I can convert it to command, probably DCC, then I may go ahead and get it.  The recent brass-hybrid 4-4-0's are wonderful.  If this is along the same detail and quality, I may get one.  I was hoping to run it with the 4-4-0's as a lashup, not happening now.

Be aware this is a recap of the entire catalog so you'll have to fast forward to the John Bull pages. They don't go into lots of detail but do discuss some of the features.
