As opposed to a single product in the spotlight this week, we thought you’d enjoy a look at some of the new product on display at York and Strasburg this past week. If you couldn’t join us, here is your first look at some of what we’ve announced and a few things we haven’t!
More goodies for Baldwin fans. The distinctive shark nose RF-14s are back and beautiful. The Pennsy’s pinstripes look right at home on this carbody, but then the NYC Lightning Stripes look pretty good too!
Three versions of our new LEGACY GP-9s were on display, including Canadian National, Rock Island and Santa Fe. Each of these models is detailed to reflect its prototype including correct spark arrestors, bell location and dynamic brake options.
The first sample of locomotives for our California Zephyr cars were on display, an AB set for the Burlington. The silver locomotives are simply stunning and will look great on our aluminum passenger cars.
Also on hand for covered wagon fans, this Milwaukee Road F-7. Like the GP-9s, the many variations of small details on these models by roadname makes a big difference. Expect delivery in early summer.
Archive Collection F’s
If classic F units are more your style, check out the Archive Santa Fe and New York Central F-3s. The high-gloss finish on those Black Bonnets makes the bold colors stand out even more!
Factual or fictitious, it’s no wonder people have wanted to see these produced for years. The “Red Lightning” is another one of those great looks that might have been.
Saluting the Military
The U.S. Marine and Navy FA and FB locomotives are back! The reproductions of these highly-sought collectibles are sure to add action to your layout as part of a set or when used with our other military cars.
Freight Cars Too!
The Union Pacific C-3 and C-4 cabooses are the perfect compliment to many of our UP engines and trains. And the safety slogans are a great reminder for everyone who sees the car – real or model.
MADE IN THE U.S.A. Boxcars
You’ve seen these before. You’ve been asking. You’ve been waiting. You won’t be disappointed. The Mount Rushmore boxcar project is still going strong, and you’ll see an official announcement in an upcoming catalog. And yes, they will be proudly made in the U.S.A.
New Thomas and Radio Control
Lionel is proud to be introducing a new control system that will once again open new doors to our younger railroaders and to increased family fun. Look for more information on these new Thomas the Tank Engine sets and locomotives to come in the Christmas Catalog. The engines are powered through the rails by a wall pack and controlled by radio control. Best of all, they’ll work on your layout too!
