We have requested that this engine come with the long tender, just like we used for the RI engine.

The profile in the picture vs the MTH drawing is slightly different.  This is a standard production tooling that MTH uses for most of their USRA Pacific's.  This is NOT an O-Scale brass 2-rail model that would mimic the real thing (picture) to the correct scale with correct proportions.  This is as close as we can get to using the available tools at hand.

All scale steam engines are over $1000 now I’m afraid. There won’t be new tooling for die cast steam engines. So if your a fan of a railroad that never got exact tooling made for steam engines you like, it isn’t going to happen now.  I own a Lionel RI northern from last year. It’s not exactly right either in fact I am removing the SF number boards that Lionel painted over. When possible we try to be prototypical, sometimes we can get to a believable range. That’s where this CNW falls in my opinion. Not every engine on a railroad should be an E4 Hudson or Hiawatha . Not every Pacific had a colorful paint job.

I think you folks should be congratulated for offering creative adaptations using existing tooling, painting prototypically as possible and avoiding "fantasy" paint jobs.
