You control the next HW passenger car release - what it is ?

What with the "chatter" over the need for/desire for (whatever) an 80's Baggage Express car and the impending (and to this modeller disappointing choice of a PRR)  :D Dining car I'm curious what the local gentry would like to see next ? Regardless of the company (although it's safe to say that our friends at Micro Trains are doing us a great service by stepping up to the plate with their heavyweights, thanks gang !) what car would you tool next, were it your choice and perhaps, why ?
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

It's a landslide!  100% of the vote (2 votes) so far is for a single window coach.


Hmm... I'd vote for a
bobber caboose...





Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I'll vote for a combine because in the waning days of passenger service, many were tacked on the end of mixed freights and used on smaller branch lines all over Canada.

The other combine I would like to see is the Baggage/RPO.

I voted for 60-70' Baggage but a close second for me would be some sort of Baggage/Coach or Baggage/Lounge combine. As ridership declined a lot of the local trains consisted of a couple baggage/mail cars and a coach/mail or coach/baggage  on the end to serve the waining ridership.

Oh I wish I could take credit for that but I just pulled it off Google to illustrate a desire. I think CN had 12 or 15 of them. Feel free to show this to Jason at the Rapido office with evidence there was at least ONE at Spadina. Ever.

I voted for the sixty foot baggage.  I would be happy also with a baggage/mail or baggage/passenger.

Jackson and Sharpe clerestory roof single window coach. Everyone(almost but come on!)had a version of this and the road names that are possible would be too numerous to list. No one else is doing this style car right now. Works for layouts from 1880s to 1930s. Would look great behind the Atlas 4-4-0 or the MP 4-4-0.

Coaches broadly similar to that made it until the mid '50s in B&M commuter service.

I said other. I wouldn't mind some of these CC&F oldies that have been 'modernized':

I voted for a sleeper. The arrangement I'm after is an 8-1-2. PRR's blue ribbon trains had these in their consists.

None of this Pennsylvania crap...

You want to take this outside?!  :trollface:
