Yeah... or sad.

I assumed they released the paper catalog early to brick and mortar stores to create buzz and perhaps give the LHS's a little boost.

Now, if they're going to move up the online catalog to June 15th, it makes it look like they bungled the release. Weird.

Or, since the catalog is now out there, are they just being fair to those of us who don’t have a “brick and mortar” shop within a reasonable distance?

The annual price increases could also be causing some hesitation in opening up the check book.

After it hit the LHS and was posted all over the internet there was no reason to hold it until the 22nd.

As far as price increases, the looming possible tariffs probably are not helping. Even if there is a resolutions a business has to plan that it will happen or stay in effect. I can't imagine how much they less they are making on items that are getting hit now.

Right now the tariffs are not hitting model trains, but by the time they ship, who knows! I suspect anyone that pre-orders could experience sticker-shock if a 25% tariff is slapped on them, I'm sure Lionel won't eat that!

.


Notch 6 is releasing his podcast of the catalog on Monday. Derek said that the catalogs were delivered by the printer one week early so sounds like Lionel is unveiling the catalog on Monday if Derek is posting his podcast.

That sounds great. Just to swim against the tide, I may stop at my local hobby shop anyway -- pick one up. I mean what could possibly go wrong there?! I'm sure there's not a thing of interest in the whole place for me...
