I'll be heading to the Colorado Railroad Museum today, one of my favorite destinations when I have time to get on the bike and tool around, and it got me thinking about the dearth of truly unique locomotives, particularly in N scale.

I get it, prototypical realism sells, gotta make dollars to make sense!

And that's fine by me. But being slightly off-center myself, I sure wish there were offerings available for those of us who stray from the mainstream. Like the aforementioned Goose, or a Zeppelin or Aerotrain.....or something like the steampunk engine below.

So just for fun, what out-of-the-ordinary engine would you like to see?

I want BN 6599 in its A1A - B+B configuration. I suppose it could be kitbashed out of an SDP45 and a truck from a DD40AX, but that would be some serious metal work. My avatar is GN 333, which would become BN 6599 :)

Lol you found it!

Now please tell me it's N scale.

And that it's not discontinued and readily available.

And that I won't have to sell a kidney to afford it.

And that it will be hand delivered by Salma Hayek along with a complimentary massage.

And that, surely I'm not asking for too much?:D

(nevermind, just noticed the 3rd rail...dagnabit!)

I have the same affliction! Well, mostly. I'm a little P.O.'d at UP for making me late to work 3 out of 5 days......

I wonder if those small barrels are the 50mm cannons?
Ya know, if so, it kinda looks happy to oblige, doesn't it?:D

Here's another one I'd like to see, built by Baldwin. The prototype had issues and didn't last long, but I'm just positive Kato could do it right!

How about an M10004!

And GRJ, please don't tell me this has been done too, in O scale, naturally. Please. Just let me wallow in my ignorance. :)

That Zephyr is gorgeous!

It sold for $769 plus shipping! The Goose is a little better, but still.....

Any Rockefeller or Vanderbilt sisters around that want to be my sugar mama?:rolleyes:

Lehigh74 you're killin' me here!:laugh: Did GRJ put you up to that?

Here's one I'm sure hasn't been made, in any scale. Ladies and gentlemen, the world's first "translucent" train!
