Wow, some of my friends have the latest edition Lionel’s 2019 Volume 2 Catalog, and I am envious....My wife bought me a recliner for my train room and now, when I get a copy of the Newest Dream Catalog, the Lionel Volume 2 edition, I will be able t sit back and thoroughly read it in a quiet place. Great thread, Happy Railroading.  514AE027-88A4-4290-BAEC-5646F2DFB7D419576E68-D2BB-42D8-BD0F-87F19D90C17C5066D0A0-0C9B-4D0F-BD0D-0D256BE3C9F6BADE0BBE-BCB4-4924-9410-64948CE8ADEAEA97BAA3-340C-4990-AD4B-15C8E8550953473A4E60-8839-4D63-BE8D-6FC6C19A78964F562D50-F673-486A-91E2-639B58106F3BF33C8D6D-9833-45E8-B225-3B51FAD72DAF

Let's see this blue goose! 

AB5B32EF-A8BF-4468-8F14-244E3687EC1EHere it is! I don’t know how I feel about it.

R. Lee Ermey has the best response to this...but I cant say it because it probably breaks a rule. All I'll say is that the public found Lionel's Jelly Doughnut.

The tracks ahead are rough, but I can still see a bright future for the hobby of model railroading. We've just got to show our youth that the hobby of railroading is just as fun as any video game.

While I, like many, would love to see the full catalog on this forum, I am assuming most who have it won’t post pics. I wouldn’t want to risk my membership in this forum and I think others feel the same. Lionel has a release date, I assume, for a reason.

The catalog will be out in a couple weeks. If members get their hands on it early, I hope they enjoy it. It sounds like it will be a good book.

If they were to ban me for posting pictures of an already released physical copy of a toy train catalog...then this isn't somewhere I want to be anyway.

Gonna pass. I'll stick with my model of the real thing. I'd love to preorder one of the correct black 3751 class Northerns but they are out of my price range.

Is the price of this Big Boy the same as the Visionline? 

No the new BB are 2,200 where as the vl BB's are 2,700.

For those of us who have no purchase interest what is the difference between the versions?

Most Regular Joes on this Forum have no contract with Lionel and are most likely free to post whatever they want about the catalogs, when they want.....save for copyright issues.

The release date has NO real meaning for most of us as far as potential liability to Big Orange.

And do you think Big Orange really minds the free publicity?

From what I can tell the new version of 4014 is painted just like the prototype. This means the journal box lids on the tender and the trailing trucks are painted white. Next, Lionel even painted the Big Boy on the front smoke box door. On the inside it is way different than the vision line.

To start off, there is still going to be the whistle steam inside of it as well as the stereo sound system in it, but if you can tell by the price there are some things missing. Those things would be, the blow down steam effect and two separate smoke units for the alternating chuff. Also, since 4014 is an oil burner now Lionel could not do the depleting coal load, ( which is a rely nice feature). Finally, you know the red knobs on the engineer’s side, they will probably be gone since 4014 does not have hers anymore.

There you go I hope this gives you an idea what they both have and do not have. Maybe a few more years Lionel will make a live steam Big Boy in o scale.

Vision Line Big Boys are out of my price range. So I might as well consider the First Run Edition of the new Big Boy 4014 instead.

I just picked up the first Legacy/JLC version of 4014 from a Forum Member.....for about half of the MSRP of the new one. 

If it cost that much just to pick it up, I'd hate to pay to take it home.

Well played, sir!!

Anything Amtrak? 

If I remember right there’s a boxcar with LEDs and a dome car.

Great to hear, but I think we are in need of some more cabbages and Legacy HHP8s. 

They just did the Cabbages. I would surly buy a Lionel HHP, E60, or ACS64. As long as they don’t have the problems of the VL GG1 or original Acela, they would be a great addition.

A full dome with sounds? That would be great!

Since people have been talking about the NS OCS for a while now. There's a chance there might be one in the new catalog.

I just picked up one at my local dealer. Yes the NS Office Car Special is in there. The K-Line tank engine (4-6-6T) tooling is finally being used. Several road names from the last K-Line run are in the mix. There is a US Army 4-6-6-T in a gray paint scheme that looks intriguing. Docksiders in LionCheif (with sound) in multiple road names. The Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal looks nice Black with yellow trim and red windows.

The Shark Rescue and Research Set looks cool. Reminds me of the custom Shark Bay engine that a forum member has painted up on Weekend Photo Fun.

After years of people unsuccessfully trying to figure out how to get the smallest ERR unit into the docksiders, Lionel manages to get LC electronics plus sound into them. Must have used quite a shoehorn to do that. Those will be nice. Are they LC or LC+?
