Title: New Steam Locomotive Requests (2-10-4 Texas/Selkirk Type and 2-8-4 Berk variant)
Post by: rnjuice on October 22, 2017, 10:10:22 PM
I think it's high time we get a Texas type in N-Scale.  The Consolidation has had 2 runs.  TWO!  I'm certain we would have enough interest to generate sales, especially if you include the Southern 610 (black and gold with red cab and white walled wheels) version of the T&P 610.  There are MANY Southern modelers that would jump at the chance to have their own 610, I know I would.

This is the HO version imported from Samhongsa:

...and if you think about it, the Santa Fe chassis would work-- add an FEF trailing truck, design the T&P boiler, voila!

Does it bug anyone else that the train is derailed?

I see here as being T. & P. RR No. 610 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_and_Pacific_610

YES!  Definitely!

TJ-- You're absolutely right, it's T&P 610 that Southern leased for their excursions for several years.  I think it exists in its normal livery for N but, if not, I'd love to see BOTH

...also, wouldn't it be great if Bachmann made a 2-8-4 variant of the Southern 2716?  (http://images.collector-modeltrains.com/MT-0055739_8e302bec-abdd-11e4-9244-d06a42375282_00.jpg)

That's correct, and the original.  Southern leased it from T&P for several years for their Steam Excursion Program.  It would be great to have both versions :)
