I would be in for an 'upgraded' K-line tooling sourced J1e Hudson, a PRR H10 with the taller tender and better silver paint, a revisit of the PRR M1b, a scale camelback possibly, and a Lionel Lines baby Hudson with die-cast 6-wheel 2046 tender - can be conventional, or LC 2.0 whatever.

Any small legacy steam would be considered.

A big Yes! For aLionel Lines baby Hudson, number it 2046 as well.

No, no, not silver! The last one had a wonderfully silver smokebox....but...it's not supposed to be silver.

It's supposed to be graphite.(a dark grey)

Prototype steamers have a mixture of graphite and linseed oil on the smoke box because if it was painted it would burn off.

Oh and how about an oxide red that is the same on the Loco and tender instead of a tender that's too bright and a cab roof that's burgundy?

The red on the k4s and m1s from years ago looked good....what happened?

Meh. I won't be buying anything anyway. That h10 was my last new purchase....fool me once.....

That's what I mean actually - no more white-silver, but the darker color we were accustomed to previously.

Are you able to share this information on this thread for those who don't have the issue yet?

The Beast Is Back!

One of Lionel’s initial Vision offerings—Santa Fe's 2-10-10-2—has returned

after more than a decade. Upgraded with today's Legacy and Bluetooth control,

this current run includes the addition of safety valve steam and selectable whistle

sets for even more fun and value. The Santa Fe built ten of these monsters

in 1911 from existing 2-10-2 locomotives, with new front engines

supplied by Baldwin. At the time, they were the largest locomotives

in the world. The distinctive turtleback tenders would serve other

locomotives until the end of steam. Loaded with stack, whistle,

blowdown, and now safety steam effects. Also includes swinging

bell, loads of added-on detail, and both Legacy and Bluetooth control. For price,

availability, and more information on this latest release of Lionel's 2-10-10-2 locomotive, visit www.lionel.com.

Thanks!

Someone has probably already suggested a re-release of the scale berks, or maybe a vl version of them, but I'm not sure since I skipped to the end. Anyways, I would love to see it, but they need to do a proper c&o Kanawha. They did the Virginian one in 2004 so I know they have the toolings to make a Kanawha, and I once considered purchasing the 2004 Virginian berk, but I'm holding out for a legacy one, however I'm not going to get my hopes up. This is all I'm really hoping for, and I'm interested to know yalls thoughts.See the source image

+1 on the C&O Kanawha.  I don't know why they haven't done one yet.

And I hope the Acela rumors are true.  A proper re-issue with the tilt fixed or eliminated, the IR connectors fixed or replaced with plug connectors, Legacy control, and capacitor LED lighting would be the stuff dreams are made of.  Such a spectacular model to behold.  I'm selling my current set but would honestly buy another if it were Legacy.

And I really think Lionel is missing a market by having not yet done an F45.  They have the trucks and frame, would just need a shell.  I remember when I was working at a hobby shop and we got the Athearn F45s in HO and N in.  We couldn't keep them on the shelves.
