Upcoming 4-4-0 in O Scale?
« on: January 30, 2020, 01:02:57 pm »
This past weekend I was at the Amherst Train Show at the Big E in West Springfield. I had stopped by the Lionel exhibit to talk to the reps and as I was leaving, I noticed two little American 4-4-0 models on the "Upcoming" section of the display. As it was late in the day, I had to run to catch my bus and so couldn't inquire about them

They look like they might be actual O Scale American 4-4-0s, which would be great, since the "General" 4-4-0 that Lionel has been building in many iterations since the 50's is about 25% larger than it should be if it were built to scale. Does anyone know if these are actually what I think they are and if Lionel is planning on actually building them in the future?
