And if anyone wants to try their hand at a C&O Allegheny, I'll take 2 of those, too.

Yeah, that's on my list, too.

C&O H-8 Allegheny 2-6-6-6
C&O T-1 Texas 2-10-4  --+
                                      +  A 2 fer...
PRR J1 Texas 2-10-4    --+
PRR I1sa Hippo 2-10-0
PRR H8/9/10 Consolidation 2-8-0

More runs of X29 boxcars

After that I think I'm good.  :trollface:

As I model the EL/D&H in the mid 1970s, my requests are primarily focused on then and something those railroads had (all N, of course):
Locos:
GE U33/34/36C: A hole in this time era that no one has filled. Surprised this isn't a more well-requested item, as I know these were fairly common across multiple railroads.
Alco C424: A newly tooled one, most likely, not sure what happened to the LL Canada ones from the 90s.
Baldwin RF16 Sharks: The ER ones are hard to find for a decent price. I have some, but compared to today's models they could use an upgrade.
Alco RS36 and EMD SDP45: Pipe dream, honestly, but would be neat to see.
Scaletrains N SD45: I would buy every number of EL/DH that was made, if any, and some foreign roads as well (most likely MILW or CNW, common run through power on EL).
Baldwin AS16: Yes, we do actually want this loco, and the Erie/EL did have some, as well as my "home road" the PRSL, which used them pretty much exclusively.
GE U30C: Kato's have not been run in a while, and we could use more.
Cars:
EL C354: Bluford's cabooses are great! I have 6 and love them, and am glad the Erie & EL Red scheme have been announced for future runs, but the EL Bicentennial painted C354 would be a great addition. Since it is BCT, it is desirable beyond just EL fans.
D&H Red bay windows: Same as above, without the BCT flair; there were D&H red cabooses in Red with White lettering, and with Yellow lettering. I am unsure which was more common.

Modeling the Erie Lackawanna and Delaware & Hudson in 1975, and Conrail and the Delaware & Hudson in 1981.

I want an N Scale GE U33/34/36C!

After examining the fantastic Arrowhead Models HO versions, I’d love to see Bluford Shops tackle the 70 ton Committee Design hopper in N scale.  I don’t believe Arrowhead has any interest in producing anything in N.

PRR J1 Texas 2-10-4   
PRR I1sa Hippo 2-10-0
PRR H8/9/10 Consolidation 2-8-0

That covers my Pennsy steam wants. 

H10/H12-44's and Passenger sharks would be my top diesel wants...

ARA standard and alternate standard single sheathed boxcars.


Mather patent boxcars.


Soo Line Sawtooth cars


Fowler patent cars (36 and 40 foot)




I’m with you on these. That would be my choice of roadnames, as well. I wish N could support a resin kit manufacturer for stuff like this.

Dear Micro Trains:
For next Christmas how about a Pullman Solarium Car. This car was much more common in the 1940s and 1950s than open platform observation cars.  Thanks!

(@Shipsure - Joe I gave you plans for this car several years ago - let me know if you need them).

GP40-2L in KCS grey

Not this year. Still want, but appears that a certain mfg that basically owns the GP38/40 series in N scale has slipped us the middle finger yet again. So f##k it, this year I want an NW2, an E8, and a coal porter.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
