Is that a NKP Alco switcher I see. O scale, Legacy?

 

 

Yup!  It Looks great!  Really colorful switchers!

Does anyone know what the price of the LionChief 2.0 GG1s is? I mainly model the Pennsy, so being one of their most iconic locomotives, although not scale, this could be a desirable engine for me.

Of course, I would have to see what the other LC 2.0 engines come out like before I make a purchase.

I like your enthusiasm Bob. Honestly, though I was hoping for something more unique. Northern Pacific 4-8-4 would have been nice. Use the coal tender from the FEF. Put the s3 pilot on it and you are close to a class A4. Give it a grey boiler jacket... now your talking. 

Also for the sake of discussion., I believe we are ready for a newly tooled scale steam locomotive. A class PRR I1 would be great !

I know Lionel has big plans...  they are doing great hybrids...  i would think they could do new steam more accurately with hybrids...  they just gave us new 19th century steamers...

I would like to see some more hybrids...

I just realized, that Lionel wanted everyone to go to there local hobby shop to pick up a paper copy. Since some of the stores are dealing with the downside of internet sales, Lionel wanted to encourage everyone by going to their local hobby shop by getting their paper copy 2 weeks early.

Bingo.  I think that's exactly right.  I went to a hobby shop with my daughter today.  This shop always gets their catalogs late.  They had a whole stack of new catalogs.  That July 22 date was a ruse all along.

If you have a decent one, for sure.  I do not.  By the way, Super O Bob, Electric Train Outlet is going out of business.  Bob Jacobson is really retiring.  Really: Electric Train Outlet

Wow about Electric Train Outlet!! I lived in STL for two years and he said he was retiring and selling then...15 years ago!!

I just got into O at the end of 2017.  When I told people I went to that store and the owner said he's retiring, they would laugh and say the same thing: "He always says that!" (Super O Bob said the same).  So I wanted him to know that it's finally, actually happening.

I seriously doubt this is to send folks scrambling to their LHS to get a "sneak peak.".  Fewer and fewer people have access to a LHS nowadays.  It's also interesting that the photo's of the catalog pages or product/price listings haven't been struck down like they were for V1.

All the catalog release does is create product buzz for an additional two weeks before the catalog goes online.  Products aren't going to get here any faster.

I'd be willing to bet Lionel's own store in the Concord Mall began offering the catalogs last Friday...

I suppose it's pretty niche-y but I'm happy to see this.

+1.

Too bad that 208 is an ALCO engine. In S scale we have a Baldwin switcher but to put that livery on a Baldwin would be a no-go. That would make a neat set in S otherwise.

Our St.Louis S gauge train club is sponsoring the Fall S-Fest this year in November and the car being produced is a Lionel/American Flyer  S scale Anheuser-Busch wooden billboard reefer like the actual one at the Museum of Transport in St. Louis. We had to change the graphics a bit to satisfy the AB people but it'll be a great looking car.

A CNJ 4-6-6T? First of all they didn’t exist in that configuration and at $1100 no less!!! The least Lionel could have done was make the proper 4-6-4T config and proper feed water heater. Correct bell location would be nice too.  These are all easy changes using existing parts. K-Line units will now come down in price. I’ll just buy one of them, make the changes needed and save +$600!

Picked up the catalog at a local store today, now realize that the 3 dome cars I was wanting are all camera dome cars and $329 each. No thanks!!!! I have no desire to have camera equipped everything.  I have 2 camera inspection cars already that I do not use the camera feature.  Lionel needs to offer the domes without cameras!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I was going to look at the videos online of the new catalog.  I even started playing it as far as the first few pages and then turned it off. Maybe I'm weird, but I prefer to wait to get the catalog in my hands.  I remember the days when Christmas was nearing and you got the Sears wish book in the mail. There was nothing greater than sitting down and thumbing through that book for hours. While admittedly I don't have much desire for most Lionel products nowadays, there are occasional things that do catch my interest and I will end up purchasing. To me waiting for the catalog to arrive, and when it does, brewing a nice cup of coffee and sitting in the easy chair viewing it brings back that feeling and memories of when I was a kid and the Sears wish book!

Well, I picked up my catalog tonight, talked with Tony a bit while the rain fell(lots of flooding out there on the roads in NJ, I got lucky). Curious thing, they offer two NYC ESE passenger cars, a combine and observation. I didn't see any other cars out there. Anyone have an idea(or are they planning something?)?

I think these are the combine and observation that they offered a few years back with the four car set the did. The four car set shipped long ago but I don’t think these two cars ever did.

I spoke to my dealer on these cars. Lionel had these as a 2-pack in the 2017 catalog. Customers were mad that they had to buy a 2-pack in order to get the observation car. The 4 pack never had the observation car. Lionel is now offering each car as separate sale instead of a 2 pack.

Okay, these went with the E8's. Good news is I don't have to buy them as I didn't get any of those.
