While almost all maufaturers are producing stuff for the largest railroads, how about some stuff for the northeast railroads, especially the Reading Company and Reading Lines? Also the Central of New Jersey is left out a lot.

  How about some GP 30's, don't care much about roadnames, just Williams quality and prices.

I would also like to see some GP30s. They could ride on the same frames  the GP38s ride on. The GP30 is a very distinctive looking locomotive. Grin

What about SD-70's in FEC(Florida East Coast) roadname? FEC is only  freight service & runs down Florida's east coast and into parts of southern Georgia.

Back in 1980 MPC/Lionel made some nice red, yellow and silver Florida East Coast GP9s which I purchased back then. Maybe WBB will consider some for their 2011 catalog. I think that the ones I have from Lionel are a real sharp paint scheme.
