Frank: You don't want a M1. You want a M. M1's had Walschaerts valve gear while the M had Baker.  The M1's were not looked on favorably by N&W and were sold off or scrapped early. The M's with Baker valve gear lasted until the end of steam. Harold

We have started very preliminary discussions with an importer/manufacturer for a new hybrid (metal and plastic, not gas and battery!!)N&W M-1.  From where we sit, this is a locomotive that a lot of us would like to have, and the availability hasn't made it easy.  Our discussions concern a 4-8-0, possibly painted and lettered like the M at Strasburg, with sound.  We're looking at an MRSP of $400-500.  
To continue our discussions, we need some numbers to give the importer.  So if you are seriously interested, at that price point, please let me know.  Again, these are preliminary discussions, we're obviously no asking for any money at this time.
