Hey guys this might seem like a dumb question, but what happens to a new Lionel item once it is marked "Sold Out" on their online store? Does this mean that they only make a limited quantity of that particular item and once it's gone, it's gone? Or is it possible that they will make more of that item in the future so that more people have the opportunity to buy one that is new from the factory?
The reason I'm asking is that I was considering buying one of the new Pennsy Lionchief Plus 2.0 switchers (2032050) but I when I searched the online Lionel store for it, it says Sold Out. That would be a real bummer if it really is unavailable now.
Here is a link to the Item on the Lionel Store. It seems like it would be a nice switcher.
