Quite a train of western Maryland equipment.   Impressive pulling. 

May God Bless us all.

Thanks Matt!!  Do you have a video of it with whistle and other rail sounds and smoke?

Looks like a very nice engine! Excited to see how these LionChief 2.0 models turn out.

Stumbled across this on youtube. Here it is on the test track at the Korean factory back in December. https://youtu.be/XQVC3Ymz9OM

 If you look closely.  It looks like one guy may be wrapping the locos while the other is boxing them up in the background. So thats 2months and these are starting to show up. Sounds about right.

If that's the finished product then it's beyond my expectations for the LC2 Big Boy. That looks and sounds great and it seems to have a lot of little details added on.

I have the full legacy lionmaster version they did a while back. the smoke on this new 2.0 version was only comming out of one stack hole after a while. lets hope they reengineered the diecast smoke funnel that sits atop the smoke unit. the one on mine is the weak point of the smoke unit. the sharp bends in it make it clog up easily and you have a hard time getting smoke to come out at first after a fluid fill up. using a needle applicator is the only way to get fluid down into the unit properly. dropping it in from a bottle or eye dropper does not get all the fluid properly down inside the smoke unit past the resitor. therefore making it clog up easilly and not smoke at all at first. when it works properly it smokes up the room. its just finicky due the this part. I was even told by the man himself mike reagan back in the day that the part I am refuring to was the smoke units weak link on my version.

Definitely a good buy if you want a Big Boy!  Whistle sounds like it is from the scale one.

South Korea????

That video of the testing has to be a fake. From what everyone says here nothing gets tested before it ships. LOL. 

Nice  find Rick. Lionel should release some of these videos for public consumption.

In the meantime I'll probably check in to "Diorama Train"  on youtube every once in awhile. Theres also test video of a SRR light mountain and what looks to be an EM1 chassis.

Maybe its an employees channel? There are some other hobby related videos, shows, other scales and other products as well as video of tooling/molds.

You can tell it's a Lionmaster since only one of the 2 smokestacks are putting out smoke.  My third (3rd!!) smoke unit on my Lionmaster Challenger has failed.  Well out of warranty.  Never did work right beyond a few minutes on the layout.
