What happened to the Orange & Blue ? Opened up the shipping carton and Lionel's White & Blue was the color of the master carton for the 6 pack of Erie Mining ore cars.

Compared the Erie ore car to a Lionel ore car of 10 years ago, identical down to the number & position of rivits and detail. I am guessing it is the same tooling that Lionel has used for many years to manufacture the ore cars

Anyways the 6 ore cars were A-OK, no surprises or disappontments.

The new batch of ore cars are identical to older Lionel ore cars. Even though manufactured in different countries.

I was at the WGH train show today and saw quite a few of the white boxes including sets master cartons. I guess times are a changing.

Bill, this packaging isn't new at all. Lionel has been using this style of packaging for almost 4 years, for their 6 packs of rolling stock, beginning with the gondola 6 packs. Continuing then with the flat car 6 packs through the current hopper and ore car 6 packs.
