More Kodachrome, SP or SF, even SPSF foobies!
That paint scheme reminds me of the Tyco Chattanooga GP20 I had when I was a kid.
A Kato E7 in IC, ScaleTrains SD40T-2, more Gp38s, Gp40s and SD40-2 locomotives in lease company paint schemes including patchouts and n scale farm grain trucks and semi grain trailers and combines all rtr.
Waiting for Atlas to shrink this O scale model down to N scale:
A C & O T-1 2-10-4 And make it run GOOD and PULL.
I Have a pair of these N Scale - MRC - 6965 - Locomotive, Diesel, Alco RSD-15 - Pennsylvania - 8615 which I repowered with two spare ATLAS RSD12 motors. -part No. 420000-
I see a great number of great wishes and I too have some:
1. KATO Big Boy, Please
2. KATO Cabforward
3. KATO SP AC-9
Quite a wish list, one "could be" the other 2 pipe dreams but you said " wish list ".
Now for my real wish and it is:
For the World to get control of this Covid crap and stop all the unnecessary deaths. The humans of the world are in great distress.
YES! Perfect model for Rapido to do... Also want them to do a proper n scale SW1200RS
I'd take an older, pre-billboard paint scheme V&O unit, such as an RS3, GP9, SD9.
Nobody else wants F9s? EMD built many, and several railroads used them to haul their crack passenger trains as well as freight units.
Man, has time changed the meaning of that phrase!
The Rocky Mountaineer both schemes! My last dream is born now...Rapido's The Canadian
Rapido is making Canadian versions of the FP9. Maybe that will pave the way for a F9?
In these times, Peace On Earth.
I second that! I wonder how KATO hasn’t jumped on that idea yet?

Oh Gosh! Train Cat products: I wish.... Please UP Cantilever signal bridges.
Hope he's OK though heard he shut down because his wife passed away....
Yes; IIRC, it is posted at the top of his website home page.
That would sure take the starch out of me...
If he no longer feels like continuing the business, I would hope someone would purchase the enterprise and restart it, or incorporate it into their own, so at least he and his family/heirs could benefit from the hard work already put into it. And of course, we modelers would benefit too. Those were some beautiful products.
A replacement boiler for an MDC 4-4-0 or 2-8-0 that is a 1890-1900 Reading style camelback, 3D printed would be fine.
As far as resurrections, JNJ had great stuff that would fill some voids. Had a TERRIBLE time finding weed-cutter plows for my EJ&E and they were the ONLY ones to make a CRI&P AB6 shell.
