    The already mentioned Baldwin road switchers would be grand.
    The PM E7 & cars would be a real joy, but-
    85' passenger car core kits are top of my list. 2 kits left in hand, and 13 brass sides to be built. Decisions, decisions...

    It would be wonderful to see Baldwins get some love. But in the meantime, you can do the road switchers and center cabs with Shapeways shells and Alco chassis. The road switchers work well with the RS-1 Atlas and the center cab transfers work well with the big Alco Century Atlas chassis. C628 and C630.

    I did the DS-4-4-1500 and it went pretty well, actually.

    Kato...


    Since everybody else is having factory issues I would simply like to see Kato step up while they basically have control of the industry and re-run former offerings updated with sound.

    RDCs! and all the other good stuff they have run in the past. And maybe a new model or two

    Kato to put passengers inside their passenger cars, rather than us having to do surgery on figures.

    I would like to see better wooden passenger cars and Pullmans available. Something other than those silly short Overtons. They were in use for 60 years or more, why can't N scale get some decent early passenger cars? Preferably with a good ride height, decent free-rolling trucks, and photo-etched end railings.

    Seconding the already-made suggestions for Baldwin diesels and early passenger cars.

    I'd love to see more NP Pine Tree Scheme passenger equipment. You can get a full set in Loewy colors if you look the right place... can only get one or two cars (and verrrry expensive Intermountain Fs) in the pre-1953 colors.

    On the novelty item front, I still want an updated version of the 5-axle FM C-liner passenger diesels.

    I think what'd I love most of all are functional searchlight signals, already assembled. Right now the choice is between cheap Chinese signals, or spending the rest of my life trying to build those etched brass kits.

    Trix is purportedly coming out with an ICE (BR 401) with sound at both ends of the train and factory installed lighting in all cars controlled by function decoders. I have one on pre-order. I wish they would re-issue their ICE 3 with the same upgrades.

    And I also would like to see sound decoders for passenger trains that have station announcements for Gleis 1 through 6 (Track 1 through 6). Who has a 15 track passenger station?
    Cheers!

    Or a True Scale coupler shank that is compatible with existing draft gear boxes. That much should have been obvious to MT from the get-go.

    Oh, that would go over like a lead balloon.

    My question is, did MT ever survey the market first to see what features it wanted in a scale-sized coupler for N scale? Why risk a potential ready-fire-aim approach?

    Next we'll be hearing that MT is no longer making True Scale couplers because of slow sales. Well, duh! I'm not about to retrofit a bunch of cars with TS-only draft gear boxes.
