    Default North American Diesel Locomotives not yet produced in N scale.

    Another thread made me think of this one.

    Which diesel locomotives have not yet been produced in N scale, or have only been produced in limited Brass runs?

    Couple of "rules" if you will.


    Significant models : over 50 produced.

    Road Switcher types... I think the list of SWs/industrial switchers could get quite long..


    Lets see what the group can come up with. I hope some of the manufacturers happen across this thread....

    The SD18 for certain.

    And, sorry @Bessemer Bob, even though it comes few numbers shy of your 50-build threshold, the SD20.

    GE's U33C - Mark indicates that there were some brass ones made back in the 80's but that's it. I have contemplated using a Kato U30C and Shapeways parts but it's low on the priority list.

    THIS and a HH GP50 as well as a HH GE U30C, and an HH U33C. Maybe a HH GP35, Alco trucks. I am a Southern man what can I say? Most of these could easily be done with existing chassis.

    Only put that in there since there are thousands of "odd balls" or limited/failed models made over the years. Such as the SD39...... Oh shoot I think there was right around 60 made lol

    EMD SDP45 (52 produced) and already made for our big brothers in HO
    GE U36B


    What is promising to see so far is a lot of what people are putting out there has already been mass produced in HO.
