Good. Now they can concentrate on the tooling for the next most popular loco, the BL2.
You mean, like this one?
Serious or not, it would be cool. But there's not a lot of room inside for Lionel's high end electronics that a lot of guys want. BTW, this one is my Bill's Train House kit I assembled in 2004. With an all but bullet proof AM drive mechanism, it's still running great. I can even swap in a set of scale wheels for operation on a scale layout. The only electronics inside is a Dalee reverse unit for AC use and a DPDT switch to allow DC operation if desired.
Still, I can't deny that the Berk looks pretty good...
