|Well, that's interesting, although it's worth pointing out that Bachmann has done logging-type Mallets in On30 (the 2-6-6-2) and G/F. Their market choices in HO, Shay, Climax, USRA 2-6-6-2, modern 4-4-0, Ma & Pa 4-6-0, Russian Decapod, etc etc, haven't been all that different from PFM's and Gem's choices in the early days of brass. Something like the 2-4-4-2 is always going to sell, I think. Powerhouse, according to the box, did the 2-4-4-2 in every road name the prototype had, and frankly, if I saw one available in Columbia River Belt Line at the same price, I'd turn right around and get that one, too.
If Riley chooses not to do that specific prototype, he's clearly still on that wavelength.
