Well, here's the AA, I added the B after I took this picture. They're all Lionel Legacy Legacy.

Wow! Thank you GRJ, those are such great looking engines! Particularly in the D&H livery....I'm drooling on my keyboard right now.
Had I known then what I know now I'd have kicked the wife out of her craft room (yeah right) and turned it into my O gauge empire!

All I can do is hope we'll eventually see the same in N.
But I'm not holding my breath.

On that note here's another one I'll surely never see in N scale.
That black over red reeeaaaallly appeals to me:

That's really cool, imagine all that detail being added! Looks like a candidate for a brass locomotive.

I haven't been able to get online much lately but ran across this last night....

This is a brass and wood model designed to represent Egypt's first loco for it's first railway circa approx 1854. It's a one-off at "1 1/2" scale currently housed in a museum:

Ladies and gents I give you the Perseverance!

I've always been a Stourbridge Lion fan myself. This is a Lionel O scale model based on a full-size replica.

I've been curious about Con Cor as I run across their rolling stock on occasion. Time to start a letter writing campaign to bring back the Goose!!

GNfan that Lion is really cool, kinda dewitt-clinton-ish. Did the levers/rods move on the Lionel version? That would be something to see!

I think I've figured out why they named the scales the way they did.

O the variety! O the choices!

Nothing to see here folks. No steam for you!!

Here's another euro engine I'd like to see in N: Henschel from the 80's
