Over at Instragram, some of the comments include:

1) I wonder it if immediately derails, blames the locomotives used before this one, then catches fire each time its run?

2) Do the realistic motors whine incessantly?

3) Will at least 41% of the population say that being upside down and on fire, this thing "Still runs great"

4) Rather than a bell it just tweets.

5) It only runs on the Bone Spur.

6) You can have an Unemployment Line with everyone coughing on each other.




Where is Obama's train? Oh, they didn't make one. But they did for Shrub.

And it's fitting that the Trump Train is made by China.



If you want to buy a Real Train, the following manufacturers make better ones.

MTH
Atlas O
Weaver Models

1. Agree, Lionel has been garbage for a while - hence their poor marketing choice. Atlas is tops, IMO.

2. Awww.

It doesn't seem to include the solid wall the train will be crashing into at full speed, though. That would be realistic. Too bad we are on that train. Poor choice for a commemoration.

3. Whatever. They probably thought it would sell

I’m a Democrat and have vehement feelings about Individual One; that’s why I’m a DU supporter. And, I regret to say, most O scale two and three-railers I know have opinions well to the right of Center.

OTOH, I think Lionel is pushing their luck with this set. Maybe we’ll get to see how marked-down they’ll be on-line and at train shows like York.



In the meantime, I’m thinking about a wonderful Woody Guthrie song called “Little Black Train.” I invite Trump-loathing modelers and railroad enthusiasts to listen to it (Even if a “Little Black Train” commemorative set probably wouldn’t sell. ).

6. We generally go to the Edison, NJ Greenberg show. It's 3-4x the size of the York one.

Standard O Scalers are definitely more RW, as they seem to be less mature.

HO & N-scale are a bit more Lberal. Marklin HO owners are super Liberal.

7. Guess what? It's their GHW Bush funeral train with Donald's name

Same design, same product, different name painted on. That's it. (Except maybe price, didn't look at that)

9. Hah! My son just told me that. And for the price increase includes tariffs but no gold paint?

.

How can it be a 45 train if it isn't garishly painted like some 3rd world dictator's toilet?

11. Shouldn't it be coal powered?

And it should blow off lots of steam.
