I'll agree with you. In case you weren't aware, there's a Virginian 2-8-4 
available at train-sim.com and someone is doing the J for MSTS and is in the 
beta testing phase now. At present, I'm doing beta testing on a route that 
covers the Pocahontas Division (with the exception of the CV District). The 
developer hopes to have the route available by Christmas. He's done an 
incredible job and it's as good as payware routes, if not better!
