Last time this topic came up I wanted the SDP45 and Athearn made it. So I don't really have a "need" at the moment. The only thing I can think of that I want is really strange that they will never do. I want a Missouri Pacific RS-3 rebuild with an EMD prime mover. It had 4 tall exhaust stacks.Out of curiosity what Diesel Locomotive would you like to see from the model RR manufacturers and what Era 1960's - 2000's? Opinions are quite welcomed.
Oh, I forgot about that one. I could use a full Fleet of those. What is that 11As and 6Bs?A Burlington E5A and B with DCC & sound
I checked and don't see any for sale. I built my own from a Proto2000 E6. I added styrene corregated sides, but didn't try to rearrange the windows. If I can figure out how to post the photo, I will. I run it with an E8/9 because I need the power to get up a 3 percent grade with a six-car mixed plastic and aluminum body cars for my Denver Zephyr. Biggest problem I have with the P2K's is cracked axles. So far so good with the E5.The Burlington E5A is available in brass. It has a modern mech, and flywheels. It was built by Samhongsa I believe. The one my CB&Q modeler friend has, is nickel plated. Its a very nice diesel. You can find them occassionally on E-bay.
I don't know how I missed this. That is a current production model. Athearn Genesis released them in Feb. or March. I go the GN versions.I'd take a ERIE LACKAWANNA RR SDP45.
