That picture of the upside down railing on the Obs has bothered me since I was 15!

Jon, get a grip.....LOL

I thinned down my collection but retained all my Postwar Lionel and MPC.  My MPC engines consists of the NYC Hudson, Southern Pacific FM, Virginian rectifier, Alaska NW2, and the Rio Grande Service station set. I have never had any issues with these engines and I love the simplicity and ease of maintenance and repair.

JBUETTNER,

The Chessie Steam Special set should be at the top of anyone's MPC "must have" list. I bought mine new 40 years ago. I still treasure it to this day.

I don’t disagree but the Blue Comet has some Lionel legacy that’s hard to beat. I still have both.

Another "blue beauty" was the scarce Wabash Fallen Flags passenger set.

Another huge achievement of the MPC era - the Disney set. A real crowd pleaser. Stunning and unsurpassed graphics and colors.

Both great sets for their time and continue to look fantastic even now!

Has Lionel ever produced a good can motored chassis with sound for this tooling?
