Thanks Mark, I am glad you agree with me. I was afraid that asking him to change the number might seem presumptuous and offend others who would want the 734. I really did not expect him to change it. On the other hand, every WM train collector I know already has the 734 or doesn't want it because it was an excursion train. Even the sounds on the MTH model are all for the scenic rail road. And again, both MTH and Lionel produced the 734 in 2015 and they are not hard to find.
