The Lionel 2020 catalog preorder deadlines are approaching. What did/will you order? I’ll start it off.

Just two items:

The Lionel postwar-inspired Santa Fe Lion Chief 2.0 Set

The LC Area 51 Set (comes with the new lighted FasTrak)

*Plus several items from the 2019 catalog with spring and summer delivery dates.

Pre-ordered this set as well - I bet this is a "best" seller for Lionel this year.

Nothing. I think it's best I don't buy anything due to some health issues that maybe serious.

One thing about trains, it doesn't matter where they are going, it's having the sense to get on.

I am waiting to see delivered product.  Only then will I purchase.  First time in more years than I can remember that I didn't pre-order anything.

I pre-ordered the Boston & Maine E8 passenger set with Legacy from the 2020 catalog. Also have pre-ordered an American Flyer RF&P Berkshire with Legacy from the 2019 catalog.

I am not preordering any thing. The issues with my current purchases from Flyonel have killed my interest in gambling on WHEN&IF&WILL THEY BE DEFECT FREE?

Good luck  th thos who do

It looks like the engine in this set is the same as the E8 AA sets a few pages before in the same 2020 catalogue. I just wish they offered the same paint scheme as an AA set w/o the rolling stock.

Traditional stuff to include,

Area 51 LC set + 2 Radioactive Flats + Area 51 57' Reefer

Star Trek LC Set + Tribble Transport + Romulan Ale + Cpt Kirk Boxcar

2 Fake News Accessories

Trying to convince myself to order the METCA Wabash AA diesels before the deadline...

Enjoy the trains...

I see no advantage to pre-orders unless it’s a speciality item I may think will sell out. Trains in general today don’t sell very quickly due to high prices and low demand. I’ve observed an over abundance of dealer stock at times in recent years. I also don’t like waiting a month after the product finally is released or not getting combined shipping as ordered items don’t all arrive at once. Some dealers are first to receive items, others seem to be on the bottom of the MFG. shipping list. P.O.’s really haven’t worked out for me. I’ll just wait for a holiday sale and buy it when it's actually on the dealers shelves. The Lionel items I ordered about a year ago still wont arrive until sometime this summer. Just no way to run a business.

Mr muffins bloody nose Amtrak e8s if he gets enough orders, the catalog version if he doesn't, the reading passenger cars, maybe the prr e8s

The Friendship Train box cars and passenger cars plus the Preamble Express.

Big year/catalog for me because of the great variety of Southern Pacific items.

I ordered the Santa Fe 120 year set, passengerstation ,gateman,& finally figured out its train only, no track no remote, no big deal.

Also ordered all the Star Trek cars and train set,  ordered the Christmas set with the lighted track and some extra track.

 

This life in the man who's selling all my existing collection but I got approval from the board then they took my credit card, lol!!!

I ended up ordering both road numbers for the Coors 🍻 beer cars and the Pennsylvania Train Master freight set.

0-6-0t LC 2.0 Brooklyn loco. My son is too young for full blown Legacy control and this will pair nicely with a LC remote or the app.

Not going to preorder, I was considering pre ordering the brooklyn union docksider, but I couldn't see any particular reason to do so, it already was going to be a long term until delivery, and with the current global situation they likely aren't going to show up based on the original production schedules. I'll wait until they actually ship to dealers and buy it then, one dealer had a nice price on the preorder, but just not sure it is worth preordering for it.

Yeah, these were originally offered in the 2019 catalog and I preordered one then. As I recall from past threads, the membership here was “all in” on these 0-6-0Ts. I think they will be quite popular.

Last time I checked a July delivery.
