Lionel H10's shipping!

This is the sample Lionel had at York, not too bad IMO but I don't speak for everyone. Above all the swinging bell, whistle steam, and relatively low price make this a desirable engine for me. 

No image is showing up for me but I already know what they look like. The white isnt prototypical and I hope the bell and whistle (the physical pieces) aren't that matte gold. Other than that I'm excited to get mine in!

Personally the bell and whistle don't bother me as much as the smokebox. I think the smokebox would look OK on a passenger locomotive, but not an H10.

Also, there is a thread where someone did a wash on a Lionel PRR F-unit to make it the correct Brunswick Green. I'm assuming you could do the same thing with the H10, but I'd like to see someone else do it before I take the plunge. Here's the thread (you'll have to scroll down a bit): https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/...onel-tmcc-f7-6-24584

I'm guessing silver...... like every other scale steamer recently released.

Not my E6 Atlantic....that has plenty of other issues (and is back at Lionel after about an hour of running) but no silver paint. 

The H10s are supposed to have the same mechanics of the Harriman 2-8-0s and Lionel claims they are very reliable. Let's hope it's true!

PRRhorseshoecurve,

     Yes, my H10 is on it's way from Nassau Hobby, ETA 11/22/2018.  Even got a tracking # sent to me.  But I expect the snow may delay it a day or two.  Call Nassau about the sets.

Out of curiosity, which H10 did you order?

The new one? What issues did it have? I noticed that mine seems to have gotten wobblier....

The H10’s are now available on Trainworld’s website! Shop away, but be sure to save a Lines West version for me.
