Interesting tidbit at the bottom of the email tonight...


Our Next All-New Locomotive Announcement
Join us on our YouTube channel Thursday, July 23rd at 7:00pm EST for our next all-new locomotive announcement.  We’ll be unveiling our first N Scale locomotive that is not a part of our current HO Scale line-up.  Be sure to follow us on YouTube to be notified when the video premier begins.
Thank you for your continued support.
Sincerely,
The ScaleTrains.com Crew

Any thoughts? Thinking/hoping for an AC4400CW.

Based on how they decided to blow out the Dash 9-44CW and how easy it would be to do up the tooling for an AC44C6M, that's where I'd put my money (literally and figuratively).

Still hoping for a GP30 from this century.

If its not a AC4400CW or variant, I'd almost put my money on a SD70ACu or SD70ACe-T4.

What we can rule out is SD40T-2, SD40-2s, and SD45s.

I have a mighty need for a scale GP30... With and without DB please! I'd be tempted to pull a Bob Rivard and model the fleet!

An AC44 or Gevo would make sense, they already have the running gear and there are versions that have not been produce.
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

I'd be shocked if it wasn't some kind of modern GE toaster. But we do need a modern tooling GP30 and SD40.

An AC4400CW would put me in the poorhouse. I bought 3 of their SP Dash 9s which are really great engines, so I'd probably get every number they make in SP.
SD70ACus or Tier 4 SD70AHs would also be very welcome, especially if they do those CP military units.

It just says "locomotive" so I'll go and hope for a C&O H8 2-6-6-6   :trollface:

MILW Boxcab - an EF5, with both short and long middle units.

I'd be very very happy with a basic EF1.
