Sorry Marty. Unless you like the sound of crickets this isn't the place to ask. You have entered the no response zone!   I'm still waiting for the Blue comet caboose from the same catalog as you.  I have kind of resigned myself to the "It gets here when it gets here " attitude.

Yep.  I thought I'd give it a chance.

I've had the engine since I believe late 2010 or early 2011.  6 years for a caboose to come out is painful.

Seems like this section of the forum is a dud.  Rich should save the storage and delete it.

Thanks for the update.  I decided to try my first tinplate from that same catalog with the 263E and 2600 passenger cars shown with it (painted in similar Lionel colors).  I also ordered the caboose and reefer you are looking for, though they won't be quite as nice of a match to the engine I ordered vs. the one you have from 2010.

I had a shipping schedule item that was actually worse and/or more confusing.  Being originally from Long Island NY, I ordered the HO Club car (LIRR Boxcar) from 2016, as I have still got a passing interest in HO.  Over the last 1 1/2 years or so, I kept a rough eye on it, asked at York, etc.  I was pretty sure it had never shipped, but recently started to worry I might have lost track of it and just never received mine.

Then I looked up the number in the shipping schedule and it says (as recently as last week) "May 2016".  Now I was seriously worried!

Asked at the booth on Thursday.  Yeah, it didn't ship yet, that date is definitely wrong (which is better than if it really had shipped and I just didn't receive mine).  I think the guess at the booth was end of this year or early next year for that item.
