It gets old. Like in the 1:350 ship model world. How many versions of the Iowa class battleship and USS Enterprise or battleship Yamato do we need. Yes each one seems to be better then the last but give it a break. We'd like something new, anything as long as it's different. Btw, between Riverossi, concor and Athearn I have five big boys. I don't need another.

. . .  or F-units, or GG1s, or . . .
. . . 42 . . .

Well, if it’s the Space Battleship Yamato, there will never enough models.  :)

I’m pretty sure I’ve been waiting since 2014 for Intermountain’s new FT run. Maybe we need someone new to step in at this point.

Yeah, I get that the Big Boy is an iconic locomotive and all, but I really wish we could see some USRA designs that ran on multiple roads.  Like their Mikado.  An 0-6-0 or an 0-8-0 would be ideal.

Even a re-run of the 0-8-0 that walthers ran about 15 years ago, with some modernizations and improvements would be nice.

The tooling was either lost or destroyed. Per Atlas when they purchased Walthers loco line.
