They are going to produce another GS-4 for over $800.
My guess for the largest O gauge engine Lionel ever produced was the
full scale 6-8-6 S2 Steam Turbine made in 1991. That one would set you
back about $1300. It weighs something like 18 to 20 pounds. The Reading
T-1 4-8-4 and the NYC 4-8-2 are also quite large.
Lionel has not produced any compound steam locomotives. MTH has made
Big Boys, Challengers and now an AC Cab Forward in their high end (full
scale) line. I know that they made a Rail King Challenger.
