Doesn't Tower 55 make the EMD SD70Ace? http://www.tower55pr...om/showroom.php
This list doesn't include N scale? Should have posted "Your model Railroad wish list." I would like to see a lot of stuff made for N scale as well.
I would like it if Athearn or Kato made the EMD SD70ACE.

Those are brass. I would like it if Athearn or Kato made the EMD SD70ACE.
Where does it say Brass on their page? Quotes from their page, "Experience the excitement of Tower 55, a new line of model trains so accurate and finely detailed they’re sure to bring a new level of realism to your rails. Tower 55, the new plastic division of Overland Models, Inc.., offers the names you know and love in precisely rendered HO scale.

I'm guessing this was where the mix-in came from

Same here! I can think of several dozen locomotives, and 10-times that many in rolling stock that needs serious attention. I would also like to see more involvement by the various N-Scale manufacturers in creating more prototypically-correct/accurate turnouts.

And a three truck Climax locomotive.

-An Athearn or P2K Chessie GP40-2 that was more accurate (phase II's and III's with the longer nose, anti climber and other missed out details...Could it even be affordable too?)
-A Chessie System SD40-2 from Athearn built to modern standards
-More Western Maryland, Family Lines, and Seaboard SD's and Geeps
-A cheaper yet modern detailed BNSF SD40-2 (the Kato one is my dream, but at 179.00 a pop, there won't be too many of those in my near future!)
-A BNSF Dash 9 with the correct cab windows!
-More locos to choose fromt that have sound!
I have modified several locos to more "modern" standards of detail by adding MU hoses, cut bars, speed recorders and even built and color matched a couple DW cabs for some of my Athearn geeps. They are now some of my best looking locos...And much more affordable too, with PLENTY of room for sound decoders....
....Guess I'll just keep on wishing!

Conrail SD60I (not yet released), SD70, SD70MAC, SD40-2, GP40-2, GP38-2....
Maine Central: F3 A-B set in both the green and gold, and maroon and gold schemes, RS3
AT&SF: GP40X (no longer available)
Conrail SD35, RS11, B40-8, B23-7, C425
A basement large enough to build the layout I want. One large enough to represent the line between Manchester and Concord NH...

I put in Amtrak California cars at the Walthers Survey.
For the Siemens-Duewag U2s, I think a brass company made the U2s in HO
