I'd be very interested in some nicely-detailed Amtrak equipment. Superliners would sell like hotcakes because we all know that K Line cars are impossible to find and Lionel cars aren't long enough.
All these other ideas are cool though. Krauss-Maffei seems like an interesting idea.
It does seem like the biggest or the oddest seem to sell well. Lots of Big Boys, Cab Forwards and H8's and only a handful of small steam. Things like the PRR mikados were slow sellers and even the GPM ten wheelers, which are state of the art, really don't command premium prices.
F and E units seem to buck this trend, maybe because the streamliner is the archetypal diesel. Hard not to like warbonnets and just about everything looks good on an E or F unit.
it segues into one of my pet peeves in that we ought to have the common things done in perfection first before we buy the oddballs. But then again what fun would model railroading be if it weren't for the fun things instead of the mundane.
The KM surely takes the cake here and it might even have some global appeal if the German version could be made alongside the US version.
Yep, no love for the grunt on the RR, the SD40-2 or their "modern" GE counterpart ESs. Think Rodney and "I can't get no respect".
