......Here is my "take my money list"SP AC-9 SP MT-4 SP GS-1SP P-10 (with and without skyline casting)PRR T-1 (someday by BLI)HeislerJordan SpreaderWhen any of the above show up in brass, they demand top dollar. Are the manufacturers of seeing this?
One tender that has never been available in N Scale plastic is the whaleback tender. I had one on a brass 2-8-0 and that is the only one I have ever seen.
Then don't look at the thread I've linked to below... would hate to change your mind...https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=31112
Overland Models has already offered a Jordan spreader, both low blade and high blade.
Time to get some books out and see if one of my many tender chassis will work
So most MFRs have stayed away from the expense of designing a locomotive that can only be sold for one road (the exception was ConCor...nothing funnier looking than the GS-4 that they sold painted for the Pennsy...no really).
There is also a whaleback tender for sale on Shapeways for Bachmanns 4-6-0, however he is currently changing the design so that it will fit the Bachmann tender with DCC with no mods needed (can wait for this either).
What would I buy?B&O P-1c or P-7 (look much like USRA heavy)B&O P-3-Washington/Baltimore commuter trains.B&O Q-4B&O T-4 (bought used from the Busted and Mined, so could be sold to B&M modellers)B&O Big SixP&LE A-2a-ALCo's last US steam. I am surprised that no manufacturer has done this one.P&LE H-10, especially with a vestibule cab.
