This is the short list of models I've been considering. I think I know the answer to this one but thought I'd ask to be certain.

I wish I could vote for two.  The C&NW bi levels are cool but if I had to choose it would be the Silver Salon.

I was hoping the SDL39 was going to be there. I'll gladly ask for the MP15AC as a backup. That is such a versatile engine.

My vote was for the MP15AC conversion since I have a pair of the undec ATLAS units just taking up space in my loco drawer.

Not on the list, but I'd love a Tip Top Grill/Tap car for the Olympian Hiawatha.

I voted for the C&NW car....
Quite hopeless so far.  :(

I'd like to see some of the 1936-1937 passenger cars (especially the two beaver tails). FWIW

I have a soft spot for sleepers, so I voted for the UP 5-2-2 sleeper even though I have no use for one.


Hmm... Kiz has no use
for his brain, either...

The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I voted for the MP15AC, which was used on the Beer Line until its closure, but we could use a FM switcher you know!

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

 :|                   They are all good choices, but as a UP modeler first I had to go with the Ocean Series car, as a passenger train Fanzee (nut) my second choice would be the Burlington car and thirdly the unique North Western diner. Nate Goodman (Nato).

I really think there should be an engine shell and a passenger car!

I voted for CB&Q "Silver Salon", but we are far behind the loco shell.

I kinda thought the MP15AC would be the front runner.

As for an SDL39, I already have one.  :D Seriously though, that's a tough build. Even with a shell, cobbling the mechanism together is beyond what most would want to do. Also the handrails are another problem. I had two kits that were offered at one time and I only built the one as it was a huge pain. (Sorry I sold the second kit long ago)

Yeah, I too want an FM switcher. (or several)

The passenger cars will probably get done at some point, just not sure what order. (It also depends on which I need the most)
