U33/36

U33C... I’d get every NP one they offered.

If it is not in their HO line, im thinking (and hoping) it is a U33/36/34CH. Need some U33/36C's for my SF stuff and a U34CH would be interesting.

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.
An AC4400CW  would make sense, and it would continue with the Dash-9 and T4 research and tooling that they've already done. Plus, it's a hop skip and jump away from the AC44C6M.
Also, IIRC Athearn released an AC4400CW not too long ago (although it was their roundhouse line), which could be why it's not coming to HO. Meanwhile the Kato N scale AC4400's are difficult to find.

Really, I'm just hoping it's an AC4400 so they can do the AC44C6M next, while simultaneously dreading what they will do to my wallet.

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

I was about to say, if it's not a modern SD45, an SD40 would be another real winner.

Please, please, please. These have never been done in N (RTR) before, and I would really like to see them done. I would buy an EL, D&H, CR, and NJDOT/NJT unit for sure, preferably in multiples, if I can afford them, of course. The good thing about the U34CH is essentially it's just a U36C but with HEP, and the Rapido Comet II's are correct cars for them (and have even been announced in the correct paint scheme, NJT early).

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

Ready to run in plastic; Hallmark imported many of the U-boats in brass during the 80's (minus the U34). New plastic ones would be very welcome, though.

On Facebook ST has alluded to AC44C6M's as a strong possibility in HO - and in N if the C44-9W did well...   this was months ago.

I'm pleased with my Sound equipped Dash-9's - the build quality on the last run seems much improved.

I am also happy with the latest run of BLI ES44AC's... 

Accurate NS power in N - finally!

DRS6-6-1500 PLEASE!

don't forget the trolley poles

From your lips to Scaletrains's ears!  That, or an H20-44, would put a hole in my bank account for sure.

To do something in N without a test drive in HO, though, indicates its probably something they think can't miss and is readily available in HO from other manufacturers.  E7?

But it's probably a toaster.

4400CW would bankrupt me. (So many NS paint variations)  Their Dash-9’s where outstanding. I’d be fine even with a real-run of that. Would like to see the narrow can version Dash-9’s

I doubt it will ever happen, but Baldwins AS616/AS16 or any FM H10-44, H12-44 or H20-44 would be nice.

Maybe they will be the ones that bring the CF7 to life in N Scale.  There are so many road names that you can run with this model from coast to coast.
