I have always admired their colors. I finally got a train together over the past couple of years with a Weaver Atlantic and some Lionel 18" cars. I don't know much about the Milwaukee Road but have...

Painting the area around the lenses black improves the appearance. An upgrade that costs nearly nothing.

That lantern is used on many cabeese going back to the pre war 717. MTH uses a similar one on theirs but their parts pages are fairly useless.
Lionel shows it as NLA but I suspected a few dealers...

Brasseurs may have them. The Lionel number is 6008111031.
Brasseurs shortens it to 8111031. $1.00 each but their shipping and handling is high so plan on ordering a few other items.

John, recall the video that was done a few months ago at the Lionel facility in Concord. They have two "paintjet printers" (my term). It has inkjet printer resolution but uses paint.
Very cool. I...

I believe the B6sb is scale. Its the K-Line engine that Lionel has done in the past at least once before.

It worked around 9 AM but has got progressively slower since.

And don't tell anyone but their 2200 dollar hybrid is wrong. They...

They will still spit with Lionel fluid. The problem is worse with any smoke unit that has a funnel at the top. Seems a little fluid always stays in the funnel and gets blown out.

There can be a long line and if pre registering would let you walk right in like it does at York, it would be worth a buck but if you still have to stand in line to get a wrist band, why bother?

We're in. Looks like a break in the weather with little or no chance for big snow. BTW I thought their pre registration system was odd.

MTH USRA light Mikados have an edge over K-Line/Lionel in detail and also have a big Pittman vs the smaller Mabuchi RS 385 in the other two.
NYC had a lot of USRA Lights, Class H6a.

In the past if you wanted a hybrid you had to get it direct from Lionel. That forced you to pre order and the discount was minimal.

Thanks Beach. I was afraid of that. The preview pics showed no as built versions either. That removes all temptation for me.

I like the 50' TOFCs with the pup trailers. Very colorful. The Santa Fe one looks the one TCA offered but was never built sort of like the Metca Milk cars.

Looks like they are putting it right in Lionel's face with their Premier SP GS-4s at a $1200 list.

You are assuming they may eventually offer the part. Anymore you can't assume that. They may have to either replace the engine or offer you a refund. Thats what happened with the 21" passenger cars...
