Fortunately, for O scalers the recent Sunset/3rd Rail models of the M (not M-1) has filled my need for an M. I do agree that an M would be a great model for N&W modelers as it could be used anywhere from a local, mixed freight to switching duties. The HO BLI PRR H10 sure filled a need for a good 2-8-0 and I suspect a good M would interest many N&W modelers. That being said, however, the number of N&W modelers vs PRR has to be significant and to interest a manufacturer to build an M would take some doing.
Mention should be made of other roads that bought them second hand.
Now a good M2 would really perk my interest!

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.
