I'll agree with the W.P.&Y. #4.
..also, alarger Shay...modeled after the former West Side Lumber Co. engine that is now Yosemite Mountain & Sugar Pine Railroad #15.
...But...
like I said in another topic....the one I REALLY want is a K36 or K37...(maybe even lettered for the Cumbres & Toltec?).
...
...OK...how about ALL of the above?!!! Grin
...and ALL of the ones everyone else has mentioned too?

The C-19 would be nice.  Something in between the Connie and Kay.

Mr. Bach Man,

Have we returned to the "who's name shall not be spoken" as far as future items?

I've seen several folks asking for a "Larger Shay", citing the Westside Lumber Co. / Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine RR #15. For what it's it worth, #15 is a 60 ton engine. That isn't significantly different from the 55 tons of Bachmann's current three truck Shay.

I haven't directly compared the dimensions of the B'mann 55 tonner with the #15, but eyeballing them, it looks as if they are pretty close.

Now if we want a larger three truck NG Shay, we should probably ask for something along the lines of WSLCo. / YMSPRR #10. That machine is an 83 tonner and is one of the heaviest NG gauge Shays built. It really does look different!

See more at the YMSPRR webste:
http://www.ymsprr.com/about.html

BTW, my vote goes for a modernized 2-6-0 based on the Centennial mechanism. Something along the lines of Nevada County Narrow Gauge #5.

Or as an alternative, a modernized 2-8-0 like Nevada-California-Oregon #14 / Southern Pacific #1 / NCNG #9 / U.S. Navy #L17. Both the #5 and the #9 are really special to later-day Pacific Coast NG RRing.

See more about these engines at the NCNG website:

Happy RRing,

Either of those would work.

So many choices, so little time (and cash)!!

Before we all go off into Fantasy Land how about Bachmann getting the K-27 corrected.  A little bag of brass shims just doesn't cut it. 

Rather than take a "straw pole" on the next great locomotive from Bachmann let's get what has just be released properly correct.  Then we can all indulge in our flights of fancy on the next locomotive! Shocked

Jon,

Everyone might not want something as large and expensive as the Kay.  So we are stilling waiting.   Besides,  the designers must be in work on whatever is next.

John B, I agree (as to price point!)....a little Mason, or a Smallish Mogul (again), anything Eastern!

Jon D....the stones tell me a "real fix" is a comin'.....we'll see!

I think the Accucraft coaches are about as close as we're going to come to that. Bachmann's and Accucraft's 1:20 freight rolling stock is fairly evenly priced, so there's no reason to believe that Bachmann can produce a coach for much less.

I'd like to see Bachmann come out with a coach, but something a bit more generic, or at the very least not D&RGW, for the rest of us. A nice 13-window board-and-batten coach would fit any number of narrow gauge railroads.

Later,
