My favorite will be the Crompton, 33019 for personal reasons. I have one "standard" on order from those nice Liverpool people and a re-numbered weathered version as well.

The latest schedule is early next year so I can cross them off the list which leaves the class 25/2 in revised body style with a train heating boiler fitted. Only five of them were built, 25083 to 25087 in their re-numbered form.

I need all of them to be in corporate blue. I think a few Cromptons, a couple of Rats and I could sacrifice most of the current locomotives. Well maybe not the Tractor (class 37) or the Hymek class 35 (due to be re-numbered in fake style as 35035). Of course, the dmu's and the blue pullman will still run alongside the 253........

Come to think of it, there will not be to many redundant stock after all !

A class 85 and/or class 81. Not a locomotive, but a 116/117/118 DMU would be most welcome too.

I know you can get a class 85 3D printed body to go over a Farish class 87 chassis, while not 100% right it does look the part at least!!

But as to what I would want, well not a locomotive as I can get the ones I want but an EMU I would rip somebodies hands of if they offered me a class 304 or two!!

An N gauge version of Triang's Stephenson's Rocket  ;)

Mind you that GT3 is pretty cool.

But having said that, I have a soft spot for Bulleid's ill-fated Bleeder.  8)

I like the Stirling single cos it's quirky and I like quirky,
but not a chance of a rtr version. I also like the SBB
crocodile, which is available in N at a price, worth
building a continental layout just to run one.

Yeah, that croc is a lovely model. I think Triang also produced a Stirling Single way back then, in Caledonian blue livery? In a way they were ahead of their time.

You never know as Rapido are producing it in OO so they could shrink it down if there is the interest there!!

My favourite loco has already been made but I would love it if Farish did a Wainwright class C goods locomotive in SECR green lined livery like the one at the Bluebell Railway.

Bachmann did it in 00 and it is beautiful, the livery is quite complex though and as a pre grouping loco, I can't see it being done in N.

Has to be an LNER P2 for me! - Preferably the ones with the A4 style front end.

A Blue Train, later class 303 from the Glasgow suburban electrification in the early 1960s in the original Caledonian-like blue livery
