For what it’s worth, this is what was discussed from Lionel and MTH about S;
Ryan K - Lionel did not have anything to show, but upon answering a question from an audience member about the possibility of seeing Santa Fe passenger cars to go with the last ALCo PA from a year or two ago, Ryan stated that under a new arrangement with their manufacturer Lionel can now do smaller runs of cars with a larger selection of markings (like Lionel’s current practice with Flyer freight cars). We will see passenger cars in the 2019V2 catalog and more in 2020. Ryan did not address if both streamline and heavyweights would be subject to an increase in production.
Mike said that they are working on a new catalog now to be out soon, and that we will see the SW9 in it along with more F3s and additional freight cars. As I watched the video, I am pretty sure I said out loud “Ya riiiight”.
