The last catalog of LTC trains is out.

The new standard gauge trains are real attention getters.  All of the women in my family really like them and always ask what will be under my tree at Christmas.  That is a good thing,having the girls interested.

I wish I had the room for Standard.  There are some beautiful pieces out there.

There's always 5 rail multigauge track. If you want it bad enough there's a way. I bought a Blue Comet 400E just to display years ago....now I have 13 Standard Gauge engines.

Remember folks that MTH getting the Lionel branding was settlement of a lawsuit. Probably cost Mike nothing, but had a 10 year life. Now that it is over, and the market is smaller, no reason to pay for it. I suspect there will be some more SG but unlikely any truly new items. Jim Burke's 200 series cars were cheap to implement (covered gon, bay window caboose, etc) adding pieces to existing products.

So a couple of thoughts, Mike, put a PRR K4 shell on the 392e (I'll show you a 3D printed one soon)

make a 6 wheel drive with smaller drivers and put under the 400e - it will fit, and change the cab to look more like the NYC Hudson. Then put the 392 tender behind  it

same 6 wheel drive could go unreal the 384e to make a nice 0-6-0

 

whatcha think

400e frame gives you more room.. That's what I gonna use for my rat rod Hudson.

Once I figure out wheel spacing.. And drive gear mod. 

Blinding the middle wheel will give the clearance..

Using a can motor.no problem with spacing... Once gears are adjusted..

But to look right think you need to keep the large wheel.

And extend the frame... I have an mth 400e ..which I was going to cannibalize.. Use the motor..its a can motor..its all apart..

And I have a 400e I put together..by piece. Which will be my Hudson.. Frame needs to be. Cut and expanded.
