For me,

          I like building, painting & weathering of engines and rollingstock.  So I'd like to see more working doors or better choices for working long hood doors on diesels or steam cab doors.  Thanx Thom...

19th century passenger cars, and in general passenger cars with interior parts (or the parts to add them to car kits.)

Thom...

Yes to all............

There is something in each of your question lines that gets my attention. 

I tend to move from project to project due to moving interests of the moment.  That's why my bench is a mess of different stuff.

I think if I was in the second grade now they would medicate me for inattention.  I know I had it the first time I was in second grade.

As most of you know...... much of what I build is to see if I can really do it.  You might all be impressed but I am frequently amazed ! ! ! !

It is hard to narrow down to one line what you have put up there to consider.

Thanx again for making me think.....

see ya

I want to see more Saturdays so I can have more time to play with trains.   ;D  ;D  ;D

Of course I'd also like to see more Reading loco's, rolling stock, structures, etc.   ;)

Thom,


You and I have emailed about this one recently...


I would like DCC sound to be standardized! It would be cool to take a new loco out of the box, run it at slow speeds and the engine actually sounds like an engine running and slow speeds.  It seems like sound standards has been an afterthought. 

Just my two cents...

I would like to see better figures in HO scale.  Any time I see a really good photograph of an HO structure or scene it's always the figures that give away that your looking at a model.  Thanks to Dave Reveila I've seen HO figures painted well.
