Atlas releasing a new run of Santa Fe and Amtrak Dash 8-32BWH/8-40BW's. What's the hold up? Those units sell well so I see no reason to not make some more.

Plus, I need a Dash 8-32BWH in Phase IV for my "New Amsterdam Limited". Big Smile

 

You are totally right. Instead of one paint release make all three. Can, Diet and Crystal Pepsi.

A remake of or a retooled plain NYC Hudson from Con-Cor or somebody else.

I'd vote for a 4-4-2 Atlantic or 4-6-2 Pacific in PRR or NYC built for DC, not DCC, as I can't afford the switchover to DCC.  I already have several locos for DC.

SAR 500: You probably ought to clarify what tank engines you are talking about. NKP certainly didn't own any. Maybe CNJ? Boston & Albany? CN?

As long as this thread won't die, I might as well add the Lima Hamilton diesel switcher. I'd go for that. And I know a lot of short line & industrial modelers who would love a Whitcomb. 

This thread is an opportunity for us to complain about what isn't available, but it seems like some thanks are in order too.  So I'd like to thank Intermountain for releasing the AAR alternate standard twin offset hopper a few years ago. We had the standard car from Athearn, Atlas, Kadee, and AccuRail; but until Intermountain heard the whinings of a few of us freight car freaks, the alternate standard was a big void in the hobby.  The differences are small in the eyes of many folks, but significant to those of us who care.

Yes Tom it was the CN one and I think a B&A one would be  a handy one to have too.

 

Should also add some SP GS-2s 3s 4-8-4s too would be nice to my SP line up

Just saw two of them for sale, both Brass, one had DCC and sound installed.  Both were excellent runners.  DCC/Sound was $450-500ish and DC was $400 or so.

I'll add another locomotive: Chessie/B&O SD9 with Dynamic Brakes, can only find evidence of 1839 and 1840 which were both non-dynamic brake equipped locomotives ever being produced in HO scale.  Was able to find 1826 (SD7 w/dynamic brakes).

So a Chessie System SD9 numbered 1830-1838 would be great as well.

I'll second the call for an HO scale Whitcomb. I found a nice shell for a Type 65 available on Shapeways, but there's no solid information as to what power set it's designed to fit and I admit I'm not brave enough to experiment on my current budget.

While I would settle for the 65, I'd be much more interested in a 45-tonner, or any other 4-wheel diesel switchers in HO scale.

I'd also be interested in some HO (standard guage) shorty flatcars or gondolas in the 30-ish foot range.
