Will the famous Southern 630 be made in N-Scale during this new run?

Please and thanks!

Just did it in HO scale. If another run of N scale 2-8-0s happens maybe then...

Glad to see it in regular service black.  Those engines were only passenger green for excursions.  And the green on the earlier model SR engines was too bright and neon toned.  The modern Baldwin 4-4-0 got the green right, I have two.

yes sir, that's exactly right.  The earlier 4-8-2 Lt Mountains were pretty good, too.  A little matte finish helped out the 722 tremendously.

is there a way that we, as a community, could incentivize "maybe" until it becomes a "yes, definitely"?  I believe the older Spectrum Consolidation #2506 in n-scale would serve as a great template for a 630 Smiley.  It was in the Bachmann Spectrum Steam Set, #24121, "Stationmaster Southern"

On the tender, the digits look too close together.

Look at the photo in the very beginning.  Incorrect numerical spacing is a design error easily avoidable.... just like the incorrect cast trailing truck on 2-8-2 4501, while the correct Cole truck is on other 2-8-2ís.
