Lionel already has the 1111 in their 2019C2 catalog - the don’t have pictures yet but they said there will be a separate announcement. 

As a railroad employee, I believe the slogan on the 1111 should be changed to read “Powered by the tears of our people.”

Really like what UP is doing, not only for the employees,

You ARE kidding, right? What with all the major yard closings and employee lay-offs, I'd be willing to bet many/most employees are NOT all really all that happy/pleased with that ugly looking thing.

but for the hobbyist and our Country as a whole.

But I'm hoping that Lionel beats MTH to the finish.

I predict MTH will have this Locomotive for sale sortly.


I hope so.  I'm in for one with scale wheels. I'd also be in for a matching caboose, even though they're fantasy units.
