As well as being a O gauge model railroader , I am also a Toledo, Peoria and Western (TP&W) fan. In O gauge, there have been very few TP&W diesel engine models made by the major manufacturers. As for TP&W steam engines, none have been made in O gauge that I know of. Now there is a train store in Atlanta, IN that has asked Lionel to make a special un-cataloged TP&W 2-8-0 Legacy steam engine number 16 in O gauge. Lionel is willing to make this engine if the dealer can get a minimum number of pre-orders. The deadline for ordering this engine is August 27, 2021. A picture of number 16 is attached and the link to order this steam engine is as follows.
I am not associated with Mr Muffins Trains. As a TP&W fan, I am would like the 2-8-0 made so I can run it on my layout. The only way that can happen is if enough people order it.
