I finally decide to order one for the upcoming Christmas season and I see the 6-22983 has been replaced with the newer 6-85226 in the latest catalog. Lionel must have had a reason to change the part number. Yet the combo 6-37947 that has the throttle and brick, has not changed part number, so are they going to ship the old version with it, while they last, and just switch to the new version and leave the part number alone?
With the newer one being back-ordered in most shops, people must want the newer version, if they can get it.
Anyone know what is the difference?
