Another giant locomotive that only one road had. I would love to see more manufacturers come out with different versions of the smaller wheel arrangements. There were more than just USRA 2-8-2's, 4-6-2's & 2-10-2's.
As I see it, we need different versions of all these wheel arrangements. We need more versions and sizes of 2-8-0's, 4-6-0's, 2-10-0's as well. I believe that the manufacturers would make more money with a greater variety of small and medium sized locos, than they are now with these giant locos that well over 90% of MR's can't run on their home layouts.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not criticizing those who buy these and other "giants". I would never criticize any individual modeler on their equipment choices or their layout choices. But I believe that we need greater choices in steam as there are in diesels.
