Good news!

I’m eager to see when the new run of the Light Mike’s hit the shelves.

In the Virtual York Week livestream today it was mentioned that the new schedule will be available next week. The best part is that it was also mentioned that the Light Mike’s are shipping this month. I’ve got the Southern 4501 preordered and I suspect you do too haha.

Suprisingly, no, though it'll be interesting to see how Lionel approaches the new 4501 model.

I do have the ex-Grand Trunk no. 4070 on the way, however, and I'm very eager to see how Lionel executes that, especially with its sounds.

Does anyone have any information on when we can expect #2026990 PennRR vision line reefer 3 pack #2026561 BNSF beer car or # 2026603 SP beer car? Thanks

Not sure about the beer cars, but in the recent Virtual York Week it was mentioned the Vision Reefers were due to ship out in the coming weeks. Not sure why they are absent from the schedule.

I timestamped the livestream for you: https://youtu.be/ixdIDlB1ZNg?t=411

I noticed that the Preamble Express passenger set is not on the list (item number 2022080).  It was in the 2020 vol 1 catalog and on the last shipping schedule, it showed December 2020 delivery.  I preordered this set and was really looking forward to having it!  I have not heard anywhere that it was canceled.

Anyone aware of what has happened?

I emailed Ryan at Lionel.  He said they are shipping now to dealers which is why they omitted them from the shipping schedule.  I also asked him what trucks they put on the cars (the whole milk car new truck issue).  He informed me they have the prior version trucks.  They did not do any redesign on these cars.

Not sure what that means. If it means Lionel will continue to use the current trucks with non-articulated couplers, that's a non-starter and totally unacceptable. I will continue to fill any freight car needs with Lionel old new stock, or ATLAS or MTH freight cars.

It means the cars will have the prior good design trucks and not the new ones which are causing so many problems.
