Like Andre and Rusty said, maybe Scale Trains will start out its S-Gauge line like Lionel did in 1979/80 when they tested the waters with some old AF rolling stock designs in new livery after Gilbert AF had been gone for well over 20 years:

After 23 years, I was excited that AF was back on the rails, but I was disappointed when my local hobby shop owner and Lionel dealer reported that he would not be getting the cars I ordered because the entire run had been snapped up by the “big dealers.”

In whatever way Scale Trains chooses to continue down the path opened by Lionel over 40 years ago and further cleared by AM and SHS (with a little help from MTH), we need them, and I wish them well.

And Chuck K., if you are keeping track of our wish list, please add my perennial choice in such surveys, a GE 44-Tonner.  Make mine AF compatible/Hi-Rail.

Cheers!

As I said above, they are going to produce what their SHS tooling can produce.  If they wanted to get into S by making products that SHS never produced, they would not have bought their tooling.   If years down the road they are having great success in S with the tooling  they purchased, they may invest in design and tooling for new items.  A huge IF but fun to think about.

My only recommendation for the first release at this time would be to produce an SHS car that MTH never got around to .
