Peter,

I have that same B&O set preordered along with the GM&O, Illinois Central, and Union Pacific passenger sets.  None of them have delivered yet.  Deep breaths!

Mike, 

When my friends heard MTH was doing a G,M&O passenger set they all thought he was FINALLY doing F units in Red and Maroon with streamlined cars. They were sooo excited!

When they saw it was a rehash of the Red and Silver scheme they all said "What the heck" (or something similar;-) and didn't order one. Hope MTH makes all these sets and doesn't drop the ball like Lionel did with the 18" aluminum cars at the end so you get your sets.

Was the red stripe GM&O scheme prototypical?  Not very attractive considering the beauty of the diesels that could pull them!  I have some Williams 72' streamliners done in the attractive maroon, red, and black colors that are older with silhouettes. Would like to have a more detailed set with interiors someday for the handsome Atlas F3s

It is Sam, IIRC "The Gulf Coast Rebel"

And yep, not as attractive as the colors you have. That would have been a killer selling set.
