PR2 come out with new release of a CN RS-18 so I can start a 1974 era layout.

I'd like HO Masterpiece Automotive Replicas to make some early to mid 1950's vehicles. I think they are the best and most realistic HO cars out there.

True Line Trains to make a pre war CNR flat car and a depressed centre flat car.

My list could go on and on.

A set of aux water tenders for the UP 844 and/or 3985 that are correct for the present.
Several companies make the locomotives with either the coal or oil tender but no one makes the aux water tenders. The Athern steam turbine aux tenders are close but do not match the present aux water tenders used by 844/3985 and they never go anywhere without at least 1 aux tender and sometimes 2 aux tenders.

My layout finished!:rolleyes::D

I would like to see a SRR Ks-3 Consol. Preferably in plastic/diecast DCC ready. There is a Ks-1 in brass out there but I have it already.

An accurate SRR wooden and a bay window caboose in plastic as well.
 
#14
30K gallon ethanol tankers for around $20 each. N and/or HO.
HO scale tank trailers, specifically Bulktainers or some other plastic granule hauling trailer.
 
#15
Going back to HO vehicles, I'd like to see more Japanese imports, mid- to late 80's, 90's and 2000's. German and American autos are fairly well represented, but where are the Corollas, Camries, Civics and Accords? Maybe a Lexus....

Also, another wish would be TPIX reefers, but I think Craig and others may cover that with their trinity venture.

Definately this as well as figures of female cops, construction workers, and railroad personnel.

Also I agree with Chris Roy we need more models of Japanese imports from the 80s 90s and 2000s as well as more models of other common cars. I'd also like to see Atlas make a station wagon version of it's Ford Taurus. GTOs, Ferraris, and stuff like that are cool but too many and your layout starts looking like a Barret-Jackson auction not an actual town.

On the subject of actual rolling stock I wish companies would start selling unnumbered versions of the various roadnames so this way you can easily make multiple numbers of stuff. I mean most real railroads order their equipment in batches. Especially common freight cars like hoppers, boxcars, and gondolas as well as locomotives.

Nobody makes sitting or standing people with jeans and t-shirts!!!:D
Well it would be nice to have figures with Jeans, Baseball Caps, Safety Glasses, Even Vests for the ultra modern group. I figure holding an RC Pack for Yard engines would be cool to. Toss one in smoking a cigarette to while we are at it.
