Add me to the list requesting Bachmann produce a 2-6-2!
My choice would be a 2-6-2 tender locomotive based on the little 2-6-2 that was operated by S.S.& S. an the Surry Lumber Company.
Information on the Railroad may be obtained from The Dendron Historical Society in Dendron Virginia.

TNT,
Are you referring to the locomotive that was just discussed here?

I agree, a 2-6-2 would fit nicely into the Bachmann stable.

One of the SS&S's engines survives at the New Jersey Museum of Transportation.

I don't have it, but a neat little history of this line was published, titled "The Comp'ny", by H. Temple Crittenden, who also wrote "Maine Scenic Route" (Maine's Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes).

Scroll down to page 5 and check out the Shay from West Virginia that keeps the 2-6-2 company.
