So far the main complaints I've seen about this new catalog are the usual "prices are too high" and "they just keep slapping on different paint schemes".
This set fits neither of those categories. Based on the price of the other SD70s, the cars in the set work out to $150 a piece which is remarkable because they'll have figures and a station sounds diner.
Secondly, two of the cars are all new tooling, and a third is modified tooling. The locomotive and diner will also have new sounds.
I give kudos to Lionel on this set. They could've charged a fortune on it because people will pay it, but they're not. I'll be ordering one for sure.
