A Tale of Two Cabeese

By Bob Mintz                                                           Summer-Fall 2014

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).
