    Looking at all the specialty road name requests, perhaps Kato should issue a line of cars and engines in primer gray. Then, separately, they could sell decal sets of a hundred different road names in various styles. It would be cheaper than issuing all those as finished models.

    Paul, I read every word of your link. I know some of it but not others so it was a very good read. I think everyone should read it. It's an eye opener to say the least. But alas, Wall St. only cares about profits and the bottom line.

    But I think the author addresses the effective antidote to that.

    It's chilling to think of what trade with China is doing. We're stupid if we don't stop. One boxcar could be paying for one bullet.

    Oh, I think it's well within context. Maybe we need to quit worrying about what we hope will be the latest made-in-China toy and start looking at a bigger picture. There is, after all, a world outside our layout rooms.

    But I'm all for speculation on future offerings of Kato or other vendors that do business entirely in the free world. Those companies are where my hobby dollars are going in the future.

    I wonder if Kato could find interest for a 2-6-2, or even the first N scale 4-8-0. N&W and GN had 4-8-0s, not sure who else, but that would be cool. An early 2-8-8-0 Mallet would be nice too.

    Earlier this year I spoke with someone from Kato re their US Steamer roster. The end result was a simple "we have no plans to expand our steam engine roster at this time". Hopefully if we N Scalers keep "hounding Kato, maybe they will give in ....
