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!
