    I'm going to start sending some stuff to PSC to see if I can poke him up to do a run of 4100s. We talked about the 1500s and he wasn't aware PFM had done those. Nobody has done the 4100s and these would be the same quality as the Firefly, coaches and the Hudsons.
    Anybody interested? They would be about a year out if he decided to do them. Time to heal after the other Frisco stuff of late.

    I am assuming that PSC would offer some variety with regard to what they offer, namely, one model from each of the 3, 4100-class groups. As well as a choice of with/without a booster, coal/oil burning, large/small tender numerals, cab with/without full window treatment, etc.

    I rarely buy high dollar HO, but I would buy a 4100. I would love to have one in O scale.....but I know that will never happen. fun stuff !

    I would be interested, they are probably the last sizable class of Frisco engines that have yet to be imported. But I'd say I will need at least a year to heal up from the Hudsons, at least! I hope it comes to pass, I'm sure PSC would do a great job!

    I would love to have a coal burning 4100 for our Birmingham operations, especially now that our 4209 is on the dead track. The coal burning 4100s were the mainstays of the Southern Division freights, and the River Division as well.

    It is amazing to me when I am looking for something else on the internet and find something else that even more interesting than what I was after and that is what happened here. Don, I would be very much interested in a 4100. Just give my bank account some time to recover from the Hudson purchase.
