I need parts for older train sets, like the Centennial and the TGV sets.

A licensed Disney Monorail would  be glorious (and make all involved companies a bloody fortune to boot.)

I would like to see an Acela express train capable of handling 11-inch radius curves at slow to medium speeds without derailing so it won't require much space as the current Acela Express.

operates without issue thru 15" radius curves and #4 turnouts, but I wouldn't go much smaller than the 15" for sustained curves.
Acela on 18" curve

I want a return to those steel coaches Bachmann had out several years ago (late 90s or so). I'm a person of polar opposites. I run N and G trains and I enjoy running steam and modern passenger equipment. I'd love a true n scale subway train (I know I know, Kato's Japanese commuter trains look them, there are companies that have molds, etc), but a true NYC or MBTA subway would be great, as would a San Francisco Cable Car. I doubt though there's much market for those. Maybe to go along with the Amtrak equipment, an AEM 7, again, not sure on the market.

I wouldn't be so quick in casting off the the marketability of any "N" scale subway or rapid transit equipment. I have three 2 car sets of Hakote Tozan trains I plan to incorporate into a free lance transit/subway system. I would love to replace them with any US type rapid transit vehicles. Look at MTH and Lionel. Who would have thought they would have produced so many different types. Yes, there is a big market for US subway/lightrail cars in "N" scale if Kato, Tomix, Bachmann or some other manufacture would produce them in quanity. While there at it. How about London Underground equipment too! Glasgow? Paris...Name it.
