I'll vote for smaller locos.

2-6-0 - Modernised with piston valves and smooth domes using parts from the modern 4-4-0.

4-6-0 - Modernised with piston valve and smooth domes.  A reissue of the existing 4-6-0 using the cylinders and domes from the modern 4-4-0.

2-8-2 - Something other than USRA but generic looking.

2-8-0 - For goodness sake, don't stop making this loco.

2-6-2 - Only becuase some people seem to like them.

4-8-2 - Reissue both of them with metal boilers.

And P L E A S E no more articulateds and extra large locos.

it's a wish list Smiley, let them say what they want(on topic)

I will third the motion for a Baldwin logging mike, something along the lines of the CC&C #15 featured, or McCloud River #14, #15, or #18, or Rayonier #70, or a bunch of others...very, very common locomotive in the logging and shortline world, but it's only been done in model form in a couple of brass 70-ton mikes imported a few years back.  Sure would be nice to see the 90-ton version made in HO scale...but I've said that for many years now. 

Maybe next year.

Usually, for small locomotives, some people would add another car with the sound decoder in it, mostly by permanently connecting the two.

As for articulated... Walthers already covers it. N&W 2-6-6-2, Mallet. I won't ask for that... Besides, Roger doesn't want any. Wink

Besides, most of the BIG steam is already covered my the bigger or even companies. (No offense Bachmann... I still like you guys. Smiley) I, and Ryan would like some E-units. Though Walthers is making the E-units, they aren't doing the stuff my and Ryan want. Ryan: CB&Q E5 (9911A). Me: The E3 DEMOSTRATOR... Cool

Walthers already covers my other choice, the E7, soon to be in my preferred paint scheme... C&O.

I still stick with the 0-6-0, but the E5 is a dream.

like like released an e6 several yaers back. it would make a good starting point for modelling either the e3 or the e5. of the two, i think the e5 would be more difficult as you'd have to find a way to model the fluted stainless steel side panels. both, though, are beautiful locomotives. EMD all the way!

Have not the readers of this forum not read that the new release by Bachmann in the Spectrum line is a new 2-6-6-2?

Go to the model railroader forum for pics and more info.

Uh, I already know that, it's the C&O version, and I'm drolling over her. Wink

Bachmann has it's fair share of big steam.

yeah that's what I figured.  I have two that need re-gearing, and lot's of other projects that hold precedence.  I actually believe wajthers will still warranty those gears.

Your point is? 

My list was a wish list as well and nobody was preventing anyone from stating their wishes.

Again, what's your point?

Can we simply lop off a 6 and a 2 and get a Spectrum 2-6-0?

Let's kick in a Decoder, maybe sound? Then add that Bachmann charm... Wink

I'm not sure what the charm is, perhaps it's what makes them so durable, or is it what makes the plastic melt in brake fluid. No, it's the durability, it probably just the compounds of the plastic, yup, that's it.

I had asked before, suggested, that tenders alone with sound be made available.

Separate tenders are an excellent idea - sound could be an option. BUT. I would much rather see a steam loco designed with the idea of sound from the get-go, with the speaker arrangeent in the boiler. It stil sounds odd to me to listen  to the sounds coming from the tender.

And on the subject of articulateds, yes I want one, and its a biggie - nobody yet does a 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone, and unlike the Big Boy, was in service on 3 roads that I know of. So DM&IR, Rio Grande and B&O fans, lets get with the action!! :-)

Howabout a railroad specific SANTA FE 2-8-2 and/or 4-6-4 in Spectrum. an awfully large number of people model the SF. It's not like they'd get stuck with thousands of them in overstock. And please make them traction tire optional so we don't end up with a remake of the Genesis version.
