I just joined and see the various offerings thorough the years. Are ALL the cars produced by LOTS of S gauge but the scale is 'traditonall'?

I can't recall any offerings that were 'S'; all were '0' gauge. As far as just "traditional", they certainly have had scale / Std 0 offerings, so it's a mix, but all run on 0 track.
The “L” in LOTS is for Lionel so I suspect the majority are O gauge.
Not a question of gauge. The question is SCALE. I bought the work caboose and crane. It’s obvious that it’s TRADITIONAL scale. Was wondering are all the offerings traditional!
LOTS has offered both scale (Standard O) and traditional items over the years, so a little research is necessary if one is preferred over the other. I have a bunch of their scale boxcars and they are among my favorites.
LOTS offers many items that are Scale size. They offer a nice mix; sometimes Scale size cars; sometimes traditional size cars. Andy is right, you just have to do your homework.
Stu: How about getting METCA to offer a ET44ac Lionchief Plus 2.0 in Texas Special?
I don't want to hijack this thread, so maybe a new thread might be the way to go, but no ET44ac since the minimum order quantity is greater than what I think we can sell.
