July 22??  We (LHS) got our cases of the new catalogs yesterday.  Stacked on the front counter.   

Had a good local laugh over one selection.  Our first trains customer for the day was looking for some WBB non-aluminum passenger cars in SP's Daylight colors to go behind his new WBB Daylight steamer.  He had been trying to pull a complete train of Lionel aluminum passenger cars so decorated.  Claimed the engine hardly had enough moxie to pull three!  (???).

Anyhow, when we were leafing through the new catalog we came across Lionel's new offering of the single-truck camp cars.........you guessed it!.....in SP's Daylight colors.   Yep.....Just what the customer will need....sleepers, coaches, diner,.......why, I'll bet his WBB 4-8-4 can pull a couple dozen of those cuties!!

And that new Santa Fe 'Blue Moose'?.....a 3751 painted in 'Goose Blue and Silver'!?!?!?  Holy Moly!

And LOTS of BTO's........the new norm.

All in all.....

thumbs up

Great picture! If I was doing marketing for Lionel, I would make that child the poster boy.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

They'll sell a ton of GG1s. That was one of top responses to several threads polling interest in what Lionel should make in the Lion Chief Plus line.

I'm sure they will. I'm just not sure if I want to spend 500 on one. I could buy a lot of post-war goodies with that money.

If one of the big guys has it marked down enough I will probably spring for one though.

So far, nothing for me. I need to see the whole catalog. Steam engines and GG-1's are auto-fail as are first generation diesels from eastern roads. I've gotten very particular in my old age.

Here’s an EBay link with some more pictures. So far the only thing I’m interested in getting is the First Run Edition of the 4014. Looking forward to see what the rest of the catalog has!

Some bizarre steam. I do seem to see 2 Frisco 4-8-4's - repainted ATSF 3751 and classmates - which is interesting, in a way. Has not MTH offered Frisco 4-8-4's based on their tooling of the (larger) 2900-class ATSF 4-8-4's?

Now Friscoites (I'm one, minor league) can collect 'em all!
