I doubt it, Bachmann is not known to duplicate the efforts of other manufacturers.

I agree with Yampa Bob - there have been others who have produced Big Boys and I doubt that, with the economy the way it is, Bachmann would take a risk in producing what is basically a niche market item that has already been produced. Especially since guys would want it with or without DCC, capable of taking 18 inch radius curves and be cheap.

There are already far too many models of the Big Boys on the market.  Ask MTH.  BTW, only UP had a Big Boy, and not many of them at that.

M.T.H. is ALWAYS trying to start trouble with BLI! BLI makes a Big Boy, M.T.H. wants to do so too. BLI makes a J series for N & W, M.T.H. releases one a couple weeks ago.

Sorry, no Big Boy, I think there are about 5-7 makers of the articulated monster...

I really can't understand exactly what your trying to say... I can figure out the general thing your saying, but please try for better grammar. Also, download the Google toolbar. It's free and it has an apt for Spell-Check that checks all texboxes on a said web page.

I think your saying that you wish they would make 4449 in her Freedom Train; Black Business (BNSF); and Daylight schemes? If so, then M.T.H. already makes her in all of her schemes...

Good luck, and sorry for any misunderstandings.

I have to agree with Josh, even though he should have written "you're," not "your."  Cheesy OTOH, even the pros mess up.  This from the March MR, page 84, third section:
The Y3a was based on the United States Rail Administration's 2-8-8-2 design, but Walthers models the N&W class Y3a. 
Then it goes on to say the model closely matches the USRA 2-8-8-2. 
Duh.

   Speaking of Big Boy, I wore my Big-Boy sweat shirt to the train show today and as I walked in some cute young lady at a booth says (in a sexy voice) " Hey there Big boy." I just winked & said "ya, you know it." just before I was knocked off my feet by my wife, & they BOTH laughed.

The Blueline version is listed for $469 on their website. They also announced a Brass unit for around $3000 though I'm not sure it was ever produced.
