I'll dream too and put in a vote for the PRR K2.  A little before my era of modeling, but I'm not past faking it a bit.  It is so homely compared to the K4s.  Got love an ugly steam engine.

The Wyoming is cool, but I don't see 100 orders for it.  Too bad because I just picked up a Locomotive Cyclopedia that has the drawings. 

Other dreams include:

  • CNJ 4-4-2 Camelback
  • CNJ 2-8-0 Camelback
  • CNJ Baby Face Baldwins
  • PRR D16sb
  • FP45 and SDP40F
  • Western Maryland Potomac
  • PRR R1
  • PRR DD2
  • ACS64
  • Metroliners
  • Silverliners
  • EMD EA

 

The list goes on ......

Well you could do the PRR K3 4-6-2, and that would also allow sunset to do the N&W E3 4-6-2, whom the PRR sold 5 K3 to, thought the N&W supplied their own standard tender (which sunset has done.

I wonder how many here would actually pony up the money if there wish came true and 3rdrail was to make their engine?   Case in point when 3rdrail didn't get enough reservations for the NYC H10 mikado.

A good point... I for 1 definitely would purchase any of my wishlist engines if 3rd Rail were to make any of them.

I remember back when we tried to get 3rd Rail to do the ATSF 2900 class, and THEY DID! 

It's a shame about the NYC H10 Mikado...  I wonder if perhaps it wasn't the "right time" for it...Perhaps the H10 might do better now or in the near future?

I'm wondering how the reservations are going for the two Mohawk classes 3rdrail announced last year???  A engine no one seem to ask for.

Other than something interesting like a side rod electric like DD2 the others are neat but probably a small target audience.   The O1's are still often seen and both them and the L1s were not the quickest sell-outs so it seems that either PRR stuff sells slow (worked out?) or is made in too high of run numbers.  Only the manufacturer knows that.

Surprised the FP45/F45 hasn't been done.  It has a lot of curb appeal.   Athearn got a lot of miles out of the HO version (or was it AHM with the N scale one - getting too old to remember!).

Love them even though they are out of my era.  I recall a post by Number 90 where Tom said they were noisy to run due to the enclosed/full carbody.    Still wished I would have been able to have some of his right hand cab seat time.

and have on order the PRR heavyweights: dinner, baggage and RPO!( To go with my one or two Sleeping cars that arrived last year!)

It may be a Pacific type wheel arrangement but for two popular railroads along with that funky looking trailing truck and it being an older PRR steam class  never been done in O scale or three rail before would sell better than the monotonous PRR L1 that has flooded the market for the past decade.

I would like to second the request for a small to medium sized Camelback that isn't a 4-6-0.

If I reject reality and substitute 3-Rail, how does Narrow Gauge come into all of this?

To the Most Knowledgeable All-seeing, All-knowing, Great Manufacturer 3rd Rail,

Please allow me to enjoy before I croak (I will be 70 in May) the most illustrious of all smelly diesel locos, the most famous Milwaukee SDL-39. Please. Thank you, I plead, beg what ever it takes, Please.

   ATSF also used the German manufactured engines.  They used a hydraulic powered motoring system, one reason why they were not used for as long a time.  I, too, have always wished they would be produced in O scale/gauge modeling.

None of my Santa Fe books even indicate that Santa Fe ever tested a Krausse-Maffei locomotive, let alone owned one. 

SP and D&RGW are the only roads that bought K-M's and even the Rio Grande trio eventually went to the SP.

However, in February 1963, the New York Central tested two Rio Grande K-M's for 19 days.

Oooo!.....I like it!

Groveling to the drumbeat of mortality!

Now, why didn't I think of that?

I'm with Santiago.........Rock Island 4-8-4, coal & oil, either 5000's or 5100's.  Beautiful locomotives, which operated all over the CRIP system, including Chicago, Omaha, Twin Cities, Kansas City, Denver, Colorado Springs, Tucumcari NM, Dallas/Ft worth, Lincoln NE.  So these locomotives could be an addendum to almost any modeler's roster of SP, CBQ, Milw, DRGW, etc.

Well, I stepped up on the N&W K2a, M, and TE-1. Bought the K3 on the secondary market. It was offered before I became active in the hobby again.

The only reason I didn't buy the Y6b; I already had the Lionel JLC. "Good enough" in my book.

If a K1, S1a, or Z1b is offered, I'm getting them even if something else gets sold-off.

Central Vermont 2-10-4

So close.  Make it the 2-8-0's and I'd find the money for at least four or them.  And they might even be able to produce them in CNR, DWP, and Grand Trunk versions given the similarities, to increase appeal and viability.

Milwaukee Steam Power

Northern Pacific Steam Power

SP&S Steam Power

Steam that's never been offered in O scale.

I love Steam but I see that these could be hot sellers.

FM Erie Built AB units. Those would go great with the GGD Hiawatha passenger set.

Amtrak Cascades Talgo Set would be cool. Never offered in O scale or any other scale.

A better model of the Amtrak GE P42 than MTH with more prototypical detailing.

ALCO Century Series. C636's which have never been done on O scale.

 

 

I'm with Mark S,  Central Vermont T3a 2-10-4. smaller, 60" drivers, Elasco feed water heater, Vandy tender

and a popular road name with a great splash of color on the tender. This engine would stand out chugging

along with a string of milk cars  on anyones layout. Would love to see Scott put this

engine out for a reservation trial balloon ,  I think he'd be surprised at the level of interest in producing 

this locomotive.

I would like a properly detailed N&W 611 excursion version.

That's an interesting one.

I think the excursion version has a dual headlight - are there any other defining features?

There are a few. Coal boards on the tender is one of the more noticeable along with the dual beam headlight.

Either would be nice, but the plain D16 would be preferable for me,

An E2

or and E1

would be welcomed


There are many mysteries in this universe, big and small. Like, why do clowns make us laugh? Why do we love puppy dogs? And why, why do little blue midgets hit me with fish?

 Not sure if it was just on the 611 or all of the later J's, but the earlier ones had rounded tender tank tops (as modeled by sunset) and 611 has a flat top today.
