The locomotive part works seem to be good sellers.
How about one of a classic British loco?

There are certainly plenty to choose from...

I know the Mallard and the Flying Scotsman have been done by others but they were small, and had a lot of plastic in them.
A really BIG all-metal model would surely sell well...?

Another one - City of Truro.

"Duke of Gloucester" and many more.

This country had a great age of steam.

Not really, only the boilers and tender sides were ABS, the rest was Brass & Steel PE along with diecast metal and both derived form existing DJH O gauge loco kits.

The problem with other British loco’s is they dont have much appeal outside of the UK and anything outside of Scotsman, Mallard or the Rocket unlikely to be viable and similar with US loco’s only having appeal in the US. In effect you need big numbers to make a loco viable within a home country, certainly Scotsman and Mallard were such but notice these were not on sale beyond the UK.
