Just a thought, but if a custom run could be done of this, would anyone be interested??
An idea I had earlier could be a “what if” scheme of a Virginian Railway Class A. In real life, the Virginian tried several time to get the N&W to build them some locomotives, A’s and Y’s in particular! The N&W never agreed to an order for them and the VGN ended up going with C&O inspired steam power. When the Virginian had an opportunity to grab some former N&W power though, they jumped on it (they were able to acquire several Y3’s that had gone from the N&W to the Santa Fe during WW2)! The Virginian at one point even include a “Virginian Class A” in one of their company posters!
Or, if it’d be better, a run of an early version of the N&W #1218 with the boiler tube pilot and smaller tender? It’s something that has never been made in any scale as far as I know!
