As the conversation has been allowed to rapidly transit from Philadelphia to New York, I will allow my unalloyed vested self-interest to rear its ugly head and propose what might be a couple of potentially lucrative reissues for Mr. Wolf & Associates to pursue:
1.) The Staten Island Rapid Transit Rwy. (SIRT) ALCo S-2. The model differs from all the other S-2s in only two details, the paint scheme and the crew talk. Though "crew talk" is normally abhorrent to me, what the boys achieved is realistic, relevant and HYSTERICALLY FUNNY! As one intrepid youtube videographer reports - "the tawkin' an' everyt'ing is great!" It has been stated, elsewhere, that the entire production was sold out before it ever arrived - I do not own one, they are not available.
2.) The BMT Standard or "AB" has had an interesting market life-cycle that would appear to support a reissue. I became interested in the cars when I decided to use them as the basis for conversion to SIRT rapid transit cars. At first, the original 3 car sets, consisting of one motor and two trailers, were readily available on The Net and on The Bay, in addition to the 3 trailer "add-on" sets. However, the original sets disappeared very quickly and I believe only one has hit The Bay in the past six month and it sold for more than $800. The trailer sets are more readily available but are almost useless without a motor. This would indicate that sets with one or more motors would sell and motors sold individually could be quite popular for those owning only trailers.
