I wonder if Lionel is even aware of what they've done for us?

I'm guessing anyone with that knowledge is long fired......

No, I mean in the sense that, is Lionel the company aware of how a product they'd intented as a toy ended up being latched on to by modellers?

Lionel did make a later N scale collection, which never rivaled the size of their TT offerings. There was a Chessie GP9, the General, as well as a Hudson, to name a few.

There are some Lionel reps that are aware of the appreciation we have of their TT offerings. There was some Lionel reps with a display at the Train show associated with the NMRA convention that was held in Hartford, CT back in 2009.

I had a couple of the TT models they produced with (the Chessie GP9, and J Class 4-8-4), Nicholle had asked them if they were going to make a model of a Reading Class T-1. (So she could have a model of the 2101 used in the Chessie Steam Special). Needless to say, they looked a little shocked, neither seemed to know what TT scale is.
