Now that Bachmann has done the 4-8-4 Northern that they said they would not be doing again, will they also be doing the 2-10-4 that they said they would not be doing again?

A T&P 2-10-4 would save me a lot of work; especially if it came through with sound (Hey Johann; you listening?)

Say it loud, say it long, we need more small steamers.  We need 2-6-2s, 2-8-2s, 4-6-2s, even 4-6-4s.  Give the West its Harrimans.

More small steamers are needed like the Harrimon types. Enough huge steam.

Rich, Congratulations! You've earned my "favorite person of the day" award!

I'd buy at least 3  Bachmann Texas & Pacific 2-10-4s.

Tell you what i'd really really really like to see added to the Spectrum line with DCC and sound is the Norfolk & Western M2 4-8-0.
Just love that great looking wagontop steamer....But then I have a soft spot for the Mastodons regardless of the home road.  Roll Eyes

Now that they are doing a 2-8-4, the next logical step would be to extend one to make a 2-10-4, that's what the real railroads did.

YES! I would LOVE to see a 2-10-4. I would also love to see some smaller steam. Sorry bachmann, but the 0-6-0's 2-6-0's & 2-6-2 are train set quality... and that only... too bad you stopped the Spectrum 0-6-0's... I wouldn't mind seeing a Hudson either...

Jake;
The Hudsons were more or less a "regional" locomotive; that being New York area.  The "J"s were mighty snorting beasks (popeye) and looked high wide and handsome on stud of the passenger trains plying thier business oer' the Hudson River Valley.

However; I do believe that interest might be somewhat limited to that area-I could very well be all wet-...also, BLI and Rivarossi pretty much did a class act with the J series Hudson; unless you are drooling lecherously over a brass import...

Would Bachmann fare well with yet another Hudson on the marketplace?  Maybe-it works with Mikes, but the Mike is a common horse, whereas the Hudson is not.  My money on it?  I think not...BUT...Proto certainly struck gold with the DL-109 in New Haven livery...1000series yet...!

Rich,
The C&O had Hudsons and the Milwaukee Road actually invented the wheel arrangement - the 4-6-4 really should be called the Baltic.   So the type was not really centered around New York.

Gene;
On the Milwaulkee Road, the 4-6-4 WAS a Baltic; improperly referred to as a Hudson.

On the New York Central system, a 4-6-4 was referred to as a Hudson; but specifically,  I was referring to the "J" series of NYC-specific construction, which was definitely a Hudson.
 
BTW, I also finally found a pic of a J series with deflectors...('member my quest?)  Now I can do them without fear of being lynched!...

Gene;
Ref. your roster; I have a picture in two books of either a Cenrral Vermont or a Rutland "Texas", both at the engine terminal, I am not sure where; and also at the crossing at Palmer, Mass.  I also believe these engines were delivered in 1947!  That is interesting, considering that the diesel conversion was well under way by then.  "Lend-Lease" cast-offs, perchance?

Also, let me throw my hat into the ring for favouring production some smaller engines, like moguls and ten-wheelers, modern type.

Good Morning All,

        I keep seeing a request for 10 wheelers from Bachmann.   How did the last run of their 10 wheeler do and have we aleady forgotten or do you want a different version of that engine?   Do not forget,  Bachmann offered it in two different boiler styles,  high and low.   As for the 2-6-2....yes,  I think there would be a nice market for that wheel arrangement in HO, N,   and even On30......hint,  hint,   EBT #11.
