While gathering information for the latest issue of e*Train, I thought that I had included (and ordered for my own collection) a Lionel Lines caboose in the Lionel corporate colors of orange and blue.
I pride myself in having a photographic memory, although I tend to run out of film at times (digital photography not withstanding).
When I received the new Lionel catalog today, I thought that I had to order a second Scale N5B caboose in a slightly different color variation.
When I went to my spreadsheet of open orders, sure enough, SKU number 6-81810 already existed.
Which version will eventually show up?
Stay tuned (with the advent of cable and Dish TV, another saying that is now passé, as is the word passé).
