I guess you would sign up here. Just pester the mess out of them til' they make the engine. You got my vote on it. It would be better than seeing a k-27 made. Grin
Rock ON!

I think we need both the Heisler and the K-27 - immediately after the Baldwin 2-6-2 tank loco and a Garratt.  Smiley

Some of us are beating the drum for an EBT engine. There are enough Colorado engines around.

I thought this was a thread about Heislers, not a general wish list. I am getting a bit sick of the same people jumping in with the same requests whatever the topic - unfortunately in the case of the 4-6-0 this tactic was apparently rewarded (I say apparently as the Bach Man denies that they were influenced by it). If the thread  is about a particular locomotive can we please  keep comments to that locomotive, either for or against making it, suggestions as to which particular one to model and  etc.

ya...that ONE Bachmann Colorado engine is one too many huh  Grin

seriously, I don't model Colorado either, but I just don't see very many On30 "Colorado" locos available with Bachmann's quality or price...and you know if you can scare up 300/400 reservation MMI (Precision Scale) would probably be more than happy to make up some On30 EBT engines for you   Wink

While I'm not particularly interested in an On30 Heisler at this time (especially if it's going to suffer from the typical 'split gear syndrome' so common with existing Shays & Climaxes),
I think the LAST thing we need in On30 is duplicated products, and the K-27 would be just that. If you want a K-27 so bad, put your money where your mouth is - go out and get yourself one of the MMI models. Just don't saddle the rest of us in On30 with even more unsold K's sitting on the dealer's shelves!

I don't have space for the 26" radius curves required by these locomotives.

Hamish - Any engine that Bachmann makes in On30 is a step forward and will be a good thing. I think a Heisler is a great idea.

Sorry my prattling on and on for an EBT engine raised your hackles.

I think the Bachmann folks are realizing there may be a growing market and I'm sure that they are aware of the requests for specific engines.

A Heisler would definitely be right at home with the smaller equipment typical of On30.

Sure, again that ol´Horse we are beating that hard...
A HEISLER would be a cool thing to have for all those Loggers out there...

If one asks me - the Fn3 Heisler would be pretty cool to have - OR: Take the West Side Engine which would be one of my favorites.
