Polar Express aquarium car

I have the Polar aquarium car, AF44134,  on order, I understand that they are now in stock. Has anyone who ordered these received notice of shipping, or billing yet?

I thought a video might be more appropriate. You don't really see the band that "pulls" the train around in normal lighting. It seems amplified by my flashlight. I believe the band to be a strip of Super 16mm clear film whereas the Aquarium cars of the postwar period used regular 16mm. Enjoy.

Thanks Rich! They did a much better job than they portrayed this car with the original catalog artwork:

That goofy circle L in the middle would have made the car look bad. The finished version looks great!

 

Thank goodness for that!

I wonder if the other aquarium car was produced without the "circle L" logo also? If any one has one please post a picture of it.

If you haven't heard by now the 2019 Lionel catalog shows a picture of an AF aquarium car with fish on the film strip. There were pictures posted in another post but they have been taken down presumably by the forum moderator. You'll have to wait till the 23rd to see the online catalog or see if your local hobby store has a 2019 catalog if you just "gotta" see it.
