Lionel was kind enough to lend me this engineering prototype of the upcoming LionMaster LC2 Big Boy for this sneak peek review. Enjoy!

Great review, as usual, Eric! I'm impressed with the new LionChief Plus 2.0 sound set. The tinny, dimestore toy-like sounds have always kept me away from LionChief locos. If this is any indication of what we can expect from the new 2.0 releases, I will need to pick up a few!

Cool, I love seeing this stuff come on-line!   Can't wait for the Docksiders I have ordered.

Me too. I am replacing one that I squeezed tmcc into...

Looks great. I wish Lionel would use two swivel motor trucks on the scale articulates. Looks much better on curves without the gross overhang. Certainly not scale but I could overlook that. 

The sound set and the slow speed control has me sold. Glad I pre-ordered the 4014 now. Great review Eric!
