Alright, what's everyone hoping to see in January's catalog? Personally I'm hoping for more small legacy steam.

Top of my wishlist would be a VisionLine UP FEF or VisionLine Berkshires. Other items of interest would be Canadian Heritage Units, Siemens Charger and I wouldn't turn down any UP 21-inch cars.
I am wishing for a comeback of Lionel's Standard Gauge Classic series, another round of Legacy 2-8-0, a rerun of a SF 3000, and reasonable prices!
Finish the American Freedom Train as promised. At least give us the two Showcase Cars, and maybe the power/bunk car since you already have the molds from the earlier power/exit car.
O scale SOO LINE three-bay, open-top hoppers
O scale SOO LINE 57' mechanical refrigerator cars.
O scale SOO LINE 52' gondolas with covers
O scale SOO LINE 40' trailers on SOO LINE 52' flat cars
O scale SOO LINE GP30 diesel-electric locomotives
I'm gonna keep it small this time around, since much of what I want has been made already, including by Lionel.
- B36-7's with LEGACY, kinematic pilots, Kadee mounts, and road specific details
- GE Arrow 3 Rail Commuter Cars with LEGACY, kinematic pilots, Kadee mounts, and road specific details (specifically the NJ Transit cars)
- Scale road-railers (maybe use the Weaver Models tooling?)
Legacy Genesis and Legacy SUBWAYS and MU CARS!!! PLEASE!! After getting and enjoying two of the three previous subways offered (The QT and EE trains) I want more. Let's hope! Scale R42 E train and post GOH R32s would get my money in no time at all.
I may also suggest F40ph, GP38-2, newly tooled FP45, and a newly tooled N&W auxiliary water tender.
Id like to see some Illinois Central (Panama Limited or City of New Orleans) decorated 21 inch cars to complement the E6 engines from two years ago. Kind of like Ron above, the engines have been made, but not the cars to pull behind them. Same is true for many of the Sunset 3rd Rail E6's from a few years ago. Lots of great E6 liveries, but unless you are running Sant Fe or a few selected others, we have no RTR passenger cars for many of the engines produced.
Any maybe some Blue Frisco Meteor passenger cars, too!
And let's not forget a newly tooled N&W A Class #1218
I would like to see an upgrade to the LionChief App that lets you control multiple locos simultaneously and some more LC+ 2.0 locos
