Has Bachmann considered re-releasing the Chinese QJ 2-10-2's for the U.S. market modified for the existing excursion versions?  Iowa Interstate Railroad has two QJ's.  One is basically unmodified but with Iowa Interstate lettering.  The other has been modified and painted to more closely resemble U.S. steam locomotives.  In addition there is an RJ Corman engine modified by removing the smoke deflectors and adding a large red stripe.  It seems like there would be a market for these.  I collect excursion steamers so I'd probably buy all three if they were available.

Dear Bryan,
That's an interesting idea.
I'll put it forward for consideration.
Thanks!

On a related note, apparently Bachmann also produces a model of the first order of C36-7s exported to China about 1984-1985. These were stock units very similar if not identical to C36-7 units built for COnrail, N&W and NS in the same time period. With American paint jobs these would probably sell here as well.
