    Baldwin DT-6-6-2000. It's a sort of obscure model, but you could do some midwestern and western roadnames, such as Soo, EJ&E, ATSF, and the Demo scheme.







    Feel free to add your own Dear Atlas below.

    An earlier wood outerbraced 40' boxcar with the lower roof so these cars can be modeled on layouts that deal with steam to steam-to-diesel transition era. The one with the higher roof is mostly a "War Baby"... what really is needed is one that has the lower roof that were much more common on many railroads.

    Western Pacific U30B.
    I have all the parts that I need to make one if I could just find the time to do it. When I get around to doing it then Atlas will release one. Guess I had better get to work.

    The Baldwin or Lima transfer power would not be bad. No one sells a North American transfer locomotive that is constructed with up-to-date methods.

    A Baldwin road switcher; no one ever has done that.

    A Lima diesel yard goat; no one ever has done that.

    Baldwin baby faces, in B-B or A-1-A; no one ever has done those.

    I shy from suggesting steam to Atlas, as the only Atlas steam that I ever have liked is the nineteenth century eight wheeler. It is the only one that shows any consistency in decent runnability. The mogul has insufficient electrical contact. I have had and continue to have problems with the Shay. I never bought the articulated, but I have heard more than one horror story about it.

    Atlas does diesels well. I like my Atlas diesels.

    I will add, though, that Atlas' customer service is top-drawer.

    H10-44.. I really can't think of a more logical choice.

    I'm with Jerry L concerning wooden outside braced boxcars, I LOVE wooden cars and have been collecting them for a long time. I'd like the see Fowler cars and clones. It would also be nice to see Mather stock cars and other styles of stock hauling cars. I do have plans to buy the new Broadway cars when they are available but more variety is a good thing.

    I'm looking at doing a BN U30B, one of the former ex-Frisco units.

    Also need GP39-2s and GP50s.

    A "Mother Hubbard". Like those D&H that pulled passenger trains in to Lake George NY. :cool: It seems some survived into the 1940's.
