I know there are more choices in 1/29 or G as a whole these days than ever before but since it is so close to Christmas and evryone has got wish lists here are a few diesels I'd like to eventually see in 1/29:

The Short List:

Alco RS11
Alco C420
GE 70 Tonner
more high hood units in any model

Greg,
I agree with you on the Sharknose E1's. I would also like to see a BL2, F7, FL9, E8B, and BL2. Lastly mounting kits for sound systems. We shouldn't have to use double sticky tape, bubble gum, RTV and whatever else is sticky to mount speakers and boards.
LAO.

Good point on the mounting Larry. No reason that a few posts with screw holes could not be molded around the speaker opening. For sound units, at least a flat place, non-metallic, where you could at least drill some holes for screws.

Another loco might be an accurate model of the Alco that LGB made, anything distinctive would be welcome.


Regards, Greg

Greg, I couldn't agree more. I've been touting desire for mounting holes in the boards for some time as I've had a number of double face tape and velco installations let go in the heat of the Arizona sun. One solution I've tried is to use wire ties around the boards to secure them in addition to the tape or Velcro.

Another "fix" is to use 3 or 4 flathead or pan head screws at the edges of the board as a "friction" hold. Generally 2 on one side and 1 or two on the other. A spacer of styrene and/or double faced tape is used under the board.

I'd like to see an Alco RSD-15, the Gators. That would also give us a supply of the uneven spaced Alco trucks for other engines using those trucks that could be bashed and built. Jake

I would like to see more in 1/29! * GE 70 tonner ( I'd buy a few)
* Alco RS-1 ( New Haven Orange/Green I'd buy a few)

Lownote I didn't know anything about the Aristo sw-1. Are there any details about release or any pictures of the unit?

Conrail SD80MAC and UP SD9043AC (same body), but I strongly commend USA Trains for the SD70MAC, I swore we wouldn't see that one for a long time.

I really have no specific need of any model of loco that isn't already in production..

I'd just like to see more of what's already available in Illinois Central / Illinois Central Gulf paint.

Well Greg you got the wrong definition of Shark nose as this loco was produced by FM Loco works and is a really a unique engine. Yours is move of a shovel nose loco. Now the Shark noes would be neat. I also would like to see some FM baby trainmasters. These are cool also. Some Centrey 630 locos would also be great. Later RJD
