Several years ago, a ³very Senior² member stated that there wasn¹t enough
call for the small bronze gold lettering used before 1941 to make it
profitable.  I was pretty disappointed that the member would say that since
I for one model the ³formative years of the N&W² from 1930-1938.  I have NO
streamlined engines, but I have G-1¹s M2c¹s and K2 and K2a¹s many Y3¹s and a
pair of Y5¹s made from rivorossi Y6b¹s but with tenders made from the old
horrid Bachman aux tenders and coal sides from castings stolen from the
Powerhouse Y3 tenders.  Thanks to Greenway Products, I was able to get some
Pilcher trucks for various applications too.  I¹ve had to seal with 1930¹s
era hopper decals too.  Thanks to westerfields HP¹s and HR I have the ³look²
of the older N&W.  Too many of us model the 1940¹s-1950¹s transition era but
the real history is from 1918-1940.  Perhaps if MORE OF US really modeled
the older times we might just get those decals???  I sure wish some model
company would make M¹s too!  Isn¹t it fully that the fewer of an engine N&W
had, the MORE it would be modeled?  After all they had 16 ³J² class, and 30
Y6b¹s. But about 190 Z class, and 250+ M class engines, and of course 78 Y3
and Y3a¹s.
