But, the past offerings doesn’t really help someone who’s looking at S today.  I won’t deny there’s even a small band of scale folk that feel if something was offered once, even if it was 20-30 years ago, it doesn’t need to be offered again.


I’m hoping MTH’s new and Lionel’s increased involvement in S resolves some of the issues you’ve mentioned. 


Drop by anytime and feel free to ask more questions.




You may not be the fount of all S knowledge but you know a real lot and your answers are a big help to me or anyone else considering S scale. Thank you and I like your format better than what this forum offers. It's more like what the original forum was like.


Your post has a lot of good information in it. I appreciate it and I did not know about those other NYC steam models. I do have one more question: Why would any S Gauger not want to see a new updated model produced that hasn't been made in 20 years?  We all know that as technology has progressed models have gotten more realistic. Would not a new model of something desirable help S scale to grow? This line of thinking makes no sense to me.
