    The new generatio of locomotives is here (and has been here for a while now...) but no word yet on who will manufacture and when will they be available to modelers. I am speaking of the ES44AC, ES44DC, SD70M-2 and SD70ACe. Also, the Genset Switchers.

    Also, do you all think Atlas will manufacture a Dash-8C (W) in N Scale? Will Atlas add ditch lights to their locomotives? We need answers.

    I model in ho, but am wondering, have you sent any sort of request in to the manufacturers? Generally a manufacturer wants to know if a model they plan to introduce will sell. If they get enough requests from modelers, that will sway the planning dept. With plastic models, the plastic is very cheap, it is the tooling that is expensive. Manufacturers generally want to know that what they produce will be wanted before they commit the funds to making tooling for a new model.
