Scale steam engines I'd like to see Lionel make next

Of course, Legacy and Steam Whistle would be nice.  But here goes:

 

1) C&O 614

2) NKP 759.  They should have everything "left over" from the 779 and 765....just change the cab number and the sound effects specific to 779/765/759...but don't use the engineer with the New York accent.  (Rich Melvin maybe?) 

2.1)Heck....reissue the 765 w/better steam effects. 

3) Re-issue the Milwaukee Road 261 since I completely missed the boat on that one.

4) How about a reissue of UP FEF 844....just "throw in" some new steam effects.  It's one of their best locos ever....IMHO.

 

The tooling for 2-4 has already been created.  Am I asking too much? 

 

Oh well....just some thoughts.

More scale small and medium Pacifics.  L&N 152, GM&N/BM&R/R&N 425, S&A 750, CP 2317, AT&SF 3415, FEC 148... surely more I'm forgetting.  Why all these behemoths that look silly even on O-72?   These engines could be scale and still run on 0-42 or even O-36.

Kitbashing Reading Company steam engines until the day I can build a layout.  Sometimes I do custom work for others.

 

Check out my Blog of my previous work at http://brianwowak.wordpress.com

I'm with Wowak on this one... How about a nice NYC K-Class Pacific?  More NYC Ten Wheelers would be nice (how about a Rutland version?).  Although, I would also like to see an H-10 Mikado...

What am I saying? I must be crazy! I can't afford any of these "new". Let's wait 5 years on those, ok?

Thanks!

My one request is for a USRA Heavy Mikado.  Everyone has made the USRA Light Mike but no heavy.  There were well over 15 railroads that used these engines so lots of potential paint schemes.   The easy part of it for Lionel is that they can use the frame, drive wheels and steam chest from their light Mike, so there would be a nice saving on tooling.

 

The engine should be in full-scale, Legacy with all the "bells and whistles" that can be installed on the engine, and should be "list" priced at under $1,000.

 

Most other prototype engines have already been offered but here's one, and a very popular one at that, that just begs to be modeled.

Hi

I would like To se a Reading t-1 it was not done at all with tmcc.

It was one of the first engins with rail sounds.

 It would be nice to see that engin done right weit all the detail.

 It could be done in 4 paint sceams.

Reading ,2101 chessis specail,2101american freadom train and 2124 blue mountain & reading.

 the 2113 was one that the prr leased off rdg.

this would be great engin to see built in legacy.

Here we go now!

Rio Grande M68 Northern

drgw1804 m-68

MOPAC 2200 Northern (Both the DRGW M68 and Mopac 2200 used the same Baldwin plans with a few minor differences).

FRISCO 4-8-2!

Frisco 1522 4-8-2

MOPAC 5300 series HEAVY mountain

KCS 2-10-4

kcs906

Cotton Belt #819 4-8-4

SSW 819

T&P #610 2-8-4

TP 610

Nashville,Chattanooga and St.Louis 4-8-4

ncstl570

Four of these locomotives still exist,The Frisco 1522,T&P 610,SSW 819and the N,C and St.L 4-8-4.

I'd be happier than a possum eatin' a sweet potato if at least ONE of these were made.

It's very simple... Just don't use the feature.  It's been dumbed down to the point that the mfg cost to include it is likely very negligible anyway.  I just hope Lionel uses a different engineer's voice on their 2013 locomotives -- or adds a bit of variety at the very least.

1. East African Railways Class 59 4-8-2 + 2-8-4 Beyer-Garrat

 

2. Baldwin "Boomer" 3-cylinder compound 4-10-2 No. 60000 in The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, PA

 

3. Reading K-1 2-10-2

 

4. Reading N-1 2-8-8-2. 11 were rebuilt as K1 2-10-2's in 1927.

 

5. Philadelpia & Reading Camelback 4-4-2 No. 1027. She headed the fastest regularly scheduled passenger trains in the world duirng the 1890's on the Atlantic City Railroad. To compete, the Pennsy built duplicates, class E1. That culminated in the E6 Atlantics.

 

6. Bonhomie & Hattiesburg Southern 2-6-2 No. 250. She and her sister 2-8-2 No. 300 were featured in an LP album, Steam Under Thundering Skies. No. 300 rests by the Amtrak station in Hattiesburg. I rode behind No. 250 on the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern and on the Wolfeboro Railroad in NH.

 

7. Reading & Northern 4-6-2 No. 425 (ex Gulf, Mobile & Northern)

 

8. Great Western / Strasburg Baldwin light 2-10-0 No. 90 (with her Reading whistle)

 

9. William Mason in the B&O Museum in Baltimore. Original paint scheme and as the WANDERER in the movie, Wild Wild West.

What the hey, one more time.  Why not.....

 

 

Union Pacific 3114

 

UP 4-6-2 TT Gray with white stripes and matching Heavyweight passenger set. $$$

 

I also second someones earlier post to request a re-issue the legacy FEF but maybe numbered something other that 844.

man, i agree with that!


add cylinder and whistle steam effects and i might replace mine.

OK, it was for one day, but how about an add on Lionel Lines tender!

I have to second a few of these here:

 

1) the Reading T-1  (with the works)

2) the T&P 2-10-4  (with the works)

 

How about the switcher your modeling Wowak???  Some of us like the smaller steam engines!

 

Reaching here, but...

1) Western Maryland K-2 4-6-2

2) Delaware and Hudson K-62 4-8-4

Being a fan of the Pennsy,how about a streamlined K4,then an N2,and finally the very rare K5.

A streamlined K4 is long overdue.

I don't think that an N2 has ever been built.

A K5?  Why not.

Maybe 3rd Rail will do the streamlined K4 and N2.  I hope someone does because that will finish my PRR steam roster.

I would like an E6 Atlantic lettered for the Boston and Maine.  I would also buy a 10 wheeler, also in B&M livery.

 

If Lionel ever reissued the B&M Mogul in another cab number, I'd be in for that, too.

 

All Legacy equipped, of course.

3rd RAIL did the N2 but with QSI

3rdRAIL also announced the K5, both versions, but the project was cancelled due to insufficient reservations.

 

I had my reservation in.

I dont recall seeing anything major for the 'P' company in last years catalogs, which means we're probably about due for something major. T-1, I-1, something to that effect that will sell big time. 

By this point they need something to cover all of these blowouts.

 

Personally, I'd love to see a Niagara with all the trimmings.
