 I know everybody has a particular locomotive that they have been waiting to see in N scale.  Mine are a good K4 Pacific and maybe an N&W class A. The latter of the two would probably not make it, but I know there are alot of Pennsy fans out there just waiting on a good quality K4! I would even buy one or two myself. What would everybody else like to see?

I could use a Pacific in the style of the Western Maryland, and the Ten Wheeler and Russian Decapod...

I would like to see a N&W class A 2-6-6-4 as well.

I think the PRR K4 would be an excellent choice too.

Whenever the Russian Decapods get made, put me down for one in WM too!

A GE E-33! We have no freight electrics available at all in N scale right now. After all, Bachmann already has the research done from their HO model, now we just need the N version.

I wish Bachmann would make a 2-6-6-2 logging mallet.  A GE E33 would be cool.  If either are made, I would a couple.

I would love to see a Pensy T1.  A 70 tonner would be a great follow up to the 44 tonner.

I would like to see a retooled E60 or a new AEM7.

A 'modern' ten wheeler

A USRA heavy pacific

P&LE A-2a, c'mon, it was ALCo's last US steam.

A prairie (not a USRA 0-6-0 with idler trucks added)

An 1870s/1880s ten wheeler

A decently operating 1860s/1870s eight wheeler



Baldwin road switcher

A re introduction of Bachmann's never completed 2-10-0, ALCO C636 also Santa Fe's 2-10-10-2 complete with A.T.&S.F.'s whale back tender,in which the plans appeared in MR (model railroader) back in the late 1980's or early 1990's I think ..

Put me down for N Scale steam DCC equipped.

Would love it if Bachmann updated their 4-4-0s with DCC.
Decoders are much smaller now, and motors are better.

I would love to see the old tymers redone in Spectrum.

Also add the promised 4-6-0 to the list.

Heck, if Atlas can do a superb job with their little 2-6-0 Mogul, then The Bach Mann should be able to handle a 4-4-0 or 2-6-0.  Grin

How about Bachmann producing a 4-8-8-2 and a 4-8-8-4 cab forward ...

Tom,

Not sure if the N scale market is big enough to support two models of these, as Intermountain is doing the Southern Pacific 4-8-8-2 AC-12 (due out this year):
