    Provided there was enough interest, another Southern Railway ten-wheeler, like the F-11 or maybe even their Ts class Mountains.

    Plans for these are practically non-existent to my knowledge, but if they were available, then I would be more than happy to see these engines blasting along their old irons again.

    Everyone always says a New York Central Hudson, but I would build a NYC NIAGARA! With it and the Pennsy T1, you could recreate the famous race out of Chicago ???

    “What locomotive would you build from scratch?”
    Well I’d say it’s all a tie between a B&O EM-1 to right the mistake made in the 60’s, a new design of 4-8-4 based off of either the ATSF 2900 class or the N&W J’s, a new LNER W1 4-6-4 post-rebuild, or a new design of 4-8-2 or 4-8-4 based off of the Bulleid Merchant Navy class in its original form with improvements made to the places where there were flaws in the original design of the Merchant Navies.

    I like the idea of useful, easy to squeeze into existing cityscapes, new light rail. With that in mind, I would like to see 2ft gauge systems built and a new build South African Railways NG/G16 2-6-2=2-6-2 Garrat for fun times.

    Restore a Duluth Misabe and Iron Range 2-8-8-4 to operating conditions a very powerful locomotive. This ran in northeast Minnesota hauling tons of Iron ore.

    Another one would be Great Northern 2-8-8-0 or a 2-6-8-0.
