JP of Acton MA, USA writes,

WBB should do Plymouth Switchers, and Porter 0-4-0s, just like the ones that K-Line by Lionel produced

-JP

To me there is more then plenty of Plymouth switchers already on the market. I don't think that would be a wise investment at this time, give it a few years.

To "Scale out" the "Semi-scale" Toy trains would be to eliminate a long standing and cherished product line.

Yea! Why doesn't everyone else scale down a bit, detail can still be there Cheesy. Gauge isn't right either way. Grin
One definition of what exactly semi scale means http://www.thortrains.net/027stand.htm

Yep. Cheesy

I have used LED replacement BA9's, and the look is outstanding.  And LED's have less heat!

These are my Williams Brass RF-16's custom painted for the Wellsville Addison and Galeton. Plus a Williams Brass Caboose
painted for the WAG, A+B units on my layout. I know the WAG never ran RF-16's but I always wished they did. I'm a huge
RF-16 Fan. Also my Brass Caboose from Williams is a Pennsy, ( Roof Antenna's ) but I figure on my Layout they purchased
an old PRR Caboose for use.

My custom Painted Williams NW2 in Wellsboro and Corning paint with a Williams NC5 Caboose. Wellsboro and
Corning never had a Caboose but on my Layout they do. Enjoy. Longtime Williams Operator.

Custom Painted Williams RF-16's for the Monongahela. Accurate numbering on the double A units. I choose the
1210 and 1216 as only these units had the MRY emblem on the front. For Monongahela Fans everyone is more
familiar with the 1205 + 1216 but the 1205 never wore the MRY front emblem. Enjoy.

Been thinking how I'd like to have a set of F3s painted for Burlington Northern, my former employer.  I could use them in both passenger and freight service.

To me it seems that it is not really necessary to have a lot of road names from WBB.
Looks as if you guys do real well repainting and lettering what is available to get what you want. Smiley

I do not usually add to these type of posts making suggestions because I think the companies probably are more aware of what is selling,and that is there primary concern,know what will sell.
BUT an O gauge model of the PRR saddle-tanker shown on the home page would be very nice.

Yes we need O scale e60's and Metroliners in scale not the 031 toy.

I don't know who buys what,maybe Bachmann does,but it seems to me that the "O31 toy" is the backbone of the hobby.
Other companies are making beautiful scale locos that need a much larger track radius on which to run.The Williams locos
of any type are reliable,well made and affordable.
IMO if Bachmann thought scale E-60s and Metroliners would sell they would have them made.

How come nobody is mentioning stuff like the U-33C or U-boats as I have heard them called? Another caboose design(other then the N5c) would be excellent!

Perhaps an Alco RS11 would ne a nice addition to the Williams by Bachmann line???
An Alco S2 would be great also. Something other than EMD NW2 switchers on my layout would be a nice change.
