BLI J's and M's

I will add my echo to the sentiment.  The flashy big engines don't suit most of our layouts.  The M and W class locomotives mean N&W from beginning to end.  With an affordable model we could have a starting point for custom engines that match the details of so many locomotives, the variety would be beautiful.  Picture the 475, in routine work clothes, and then her special occasion outfitting.  The spark arrestors for some of the beloved branchlines, tender variations within the family, running board configurations,

ahhh, per chance to dream....

The truth is, a train with 3 class M's running up a steep grade branchline is every bit as beautiful as any articulated (makes switching easier too) and there is never a complaint that the front engine doesn't pivot where it should.  

Oh well enough ranting for tonight, time for a beer and a nice vacation...
