Charles Ro hit my CC for an item recently. I have several pending orders out there but think this might be one of the new Lion Chief+ 2.0 0-6-0t's. Have been looking forward to these as this will be my first 2.0 item and these appeared to be feature rich. Nice price, too.

Yep, that's what I thought but it is now confirmed. I just received an email invoice receipt from Ro. It is indeed the 0-6-0t, item # 2032020.

Please post your first impressions when you get it, I'm eager to see if this is everything the advance billing suggests.  I'm having a very hard time imaging them delivering on all the features for a street price of a little over $200!

Since this wasn't a BTO, I find it a little hard to believe they're out already.  Are you sure they've actually shipped one?

I hear you, John.  This is all I have to go on...in years of ordering from Ro he has never charged my CC until an item is shipping. I just checked my CC on line and the charge is there. Plus I have an email receipt with the 0-6-0t specifically listed.

Will advise here.

 

i want one of these too if there was one lc2 engine i could possibly afford its these 0-6-0 porters at 250 bucks and they can pull just enough to satisfy my steelworks and scrap iron operations which is great

steel and scrap hauling is a very large industry for the Fenix.

i hate to say it but according to lionel's website it says the date as 12/6/2020 and i just checked a second ago

i been watching these and the tier 4s like a hawk

if i do pick one of these up next summer i'll put wood stove scented smoke fluid in it

Did you receive yours yet? My credit card still hasn't been charged. The new CharlesRo  ad came out today with new Lionel releases, and it's not listed there either. Weird.

Yeah, well, mea culpa to all for the false alarm. Here's the story...

I have about a half dozen preorders with Ro and my old credit card in their system was expired. I got an email asking me to call to them to update. Lo and behold a few days later I saw a ~$200+ on my card from Ro AND I got a .pdf receipt in an email specifically listing the Lionel loco by name and SKU #. So...what to think? That's usually a pretty good sign the item is shipping. Wrong. They apparently "tested" my new card and the next day the charge was removed.

So, we wait...I think I'll refrain from any postings until I see it on my door step.

Usually when merchants "test" my card, they don't give the money back, so you're doing good.

Funny you mention that. One of the things I thought about later was that a lot of merchants "test" by running a $1.00 figure to verify a valid CC. This was the full amount at Ro's preorder price. Which is exactly why I was shouting yippee the new loco is in!
