I didn't hesitate except for this one thing which I will post a photo of latter. I got a 119 and the matching passenger cars the day of. My only question is why this popped up (in the photo that will be up soon) and will the boxes be decorated in a different way than normal? Maybe a golden spike?

No not really. I called Lionel and I had to step the guy through the process of getting to the page and he said that it did not show that. I told him that if that was true they would have hundreds of pre-orders. Over all I was given the send an email with a photo deal and went on with the day. The weird part was it was there one minute, as the photo shows, and when I reloaded the page it went and showed what it looks like today. Ryan, any info on this? 

Gee, as long as they ran I wouldn't care much what else they did or parts they stocked. Just order extra sets as noted.  But I don't see these features making it worth the real price if five per order were included.

Seven months after the last post in this thread...

This morning Lionel shared an overview video of their recently acquired samples of the Jupiter and 119 locomotives on their Facebook and Instagram pages.  Seeing them definitely puts me a bit more at ease with how the final product will turn out.  Their post states that the models will be on display at the Amherst Railroad Hobby show this weekend.

This may have been addressed,but,I wonder how these engines will compare with those outstanding models done by SMR.  I personally will not consider an over sized engine and tender.  Dave Schneider proved that this model could be done correctly.

I believe these to be true 1/4" scale models.  Judging by the brief video, they appear to be close to or equal to SMR models.

These look fantastic!!!  I’m so happy since I have both on order... I wonder if they’ll show us the cars at some point (which I hope are also of the same quality).  And I pray to all that’s holy that they have these packaged in the top-removal styrofoam as these seem WAY to delicate to be trying to wiggle out of the side styro with ribbons.... Accident WAITING to happen!!

Was anyone who was at the Springfield show there to see this?  I know that so much goes on at that show, and in so many halls, that you can miss the obvious.  I mostly like the full scale trains, but I almost always go home with a model or two, too. 

Yes I saw these two locomotives. They are very much scale in size, better than my Thomas two rail steamer that I sold off in preparation for the PRR 4-4-0 .
