Alco Models did the BPA-20 passenger sharks in brass. There's an A-B set on eBay right now. The B is a dummy but it has metal wheels so you could put a heck of a sound system in there.

Thanks for the reply,Randy. The Alco passenger sharks have a freight nose. Oriental's are accurate (and expensive). I have two sets of those, one red and one dgle. I'd like to see them done in plastic, and all the excuses for not making them ("The freight sharks didn't sell well", "Only one railroad had 'em") Don't cut it with me, after all, they did more than one run of the Centipedes, and what about the T1, New haven jets and FL9 etc. There's a lot of Pennsy fans and modelers out there, and I can't imagine one NOT wanting a BP20.

I wish Intermountain would spin their brass-beating AC-12 in HO through 180 degrees and add and subtract the few details that would give me an AC-9
