That is odd, it is not in the 2017 catalog.When I saw this I thought of the Iron Horsemen, but I also thought other might be interested.
At a list price of $1449.99 it better be and as far as I know it never sold at more than $100 off the list price.NOW --- That is a NICE LOOKING Locomotive!
I have not heard or read anything saying they would but I would not be surprised if they did. The Polar Express obsession is alive and well among many Lionel fans.Do you know if they are going to redo the entire set of scale cars to go with it? So far all I've got is the observation and diner.
At first I thought you meant shark, as in Baldwin, but I tend to be a bit slow sometimes.Looks very nice! Haven't jumped the Polar Express shark yet. I'm weighing that against the Hogwarts Express shark. My feeling is that Hogwarts might be of more interest to older kids or teens, whom are old enough to actually get into model railroading of their own accord. I got serious about model railroading sometime around the 5-6th grades, that was over the Summer between 5-6th grade. My Mom got me a subscription to Model Railroader for my 12th birthday, in 1974, about when Bruce Chubb's layout was featured in the MR 40th Anniversary issue, in 1/74.
Getting back on subject, how about a Polar Express S-2 Turbine?
It was last listed in the 2014 catalog. I did a quick internet search and it appears they are all sold out at internet retailers. I also searched eBay and found none.That is odd, it is not in the 2017 catalog.
Ok, that explains it. This is the one I've been searching for since we first talked about this....It was last listed in the 2014 catalog. I did a quick internet search and it appears they are all sold out at internet retailers. I also searched eBay and found none.
I have that catalog, but I have not yet looked at them.Well Looky here. Apparently Lionel issues multiple catalogs a year. In the 2017 Volume 2 Signature Edition is the full Polar Express done in "scale".
Looks like I need about$2100 to get the loco and 5 cars I need. I've already got a diner and the observation. I wonder why there is no hot chocolate, abandon toys, or hobo on roof car?
I ordered the first piece last night. The Polar Express Tender that will go with the Pere Marquette loco. (Lionel #6-84694 Pere Marquette #1223 Legacy Berkshire). I cannot forbear the ridiculous looking pilot on the actual Polar Express Loco.I'd love to see photos or even better a video of your scale set when you set it under one of your trees.
