NP in N scale with the unique four window cab and gyralight would be deeply appreciated as well.

D&H SD45's in both the EL stripe re-paint and the full blue/grey Lighting Stripe would also be good.

I was hoping for N BNSF H1 Dash 9s.  Or tunnel motors in N.  I agree with the SD45 comments.  I'll get a couple Golden West hoppers.

Yes, would love to see the SD45 in N. I will be your friend for life if SCL is in the first run.

I'm grateful the Multi-Max isn't available in N....I'm on a fixed income and that would break me.  Wouldn't stop me, but it'd break me...

N scale SD45?

PRR & PC for me!

Would consider a EL as a "visitor" working off hours owed. :)

liking those MILW 4785's.

An EL SD45 in N scale would be so nice.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Are the 4785 hoppers the same design that Intermountain announced a few years ago?
