I agree with Bob and Richie.  One vote for the E33 which is certainly marketable, and one vote for the EL-2B.  It's certainly true that we've got to get the manufacturers thinking electrics.  Brass is too expensive for the mass market.  Bachmann did an E33 in HO, why not N?

I was looking at the trucks-they could have been pulled off a Centipede just about.  Add the slight fillet at the top of the car body.
If you see Baldwin influences in that W1 you need an eye exam... it's GE all the way.

That's a standard GE steeplecab:

This one was owned by the New York City Transit Authority.

That New York City Transit Authority locomotive is extra special.  It has 3rd rail pickup shoes and a second coupler for subway cars.
