          Four and six wheeled coaches would be excellent. They are charming, survived into grouping, and are totally unrepresented in the current rtr market, with old GF ones still commanding top dollar.

            Yes, a catering vehicle would be excellent. Maybe one of the Restauarant Composites as these would be at home on cross-country and shorter express formations as well as longer rakes.

            Some GWR PO stock would be nice too. The Farish Mk1 PO sorting van seems to have sold well so make there would be a market for pre-nationalisation stuff too. Maybe something like this:

              I'm not sure the Farish PO sorting van has sold well. Mine were bought half price! I think as soon as we get in NPCSS territory we also seem to be in NGS territory. I wish the NGS would do something different for a change.

            I will second that. Some Pullmand coaches would look great behind one of your light Pacifics on the Devon or Bournemouth Belle.

              The current Northern Belle mk3's would do well between a pair of DRS 68's too

                The two Mk3s in the Northern Belle are sleepers, and Dapol don't do Mk3 sleepers. All the other coaches in that set are Mk2s.

              Coaching stock wise, some new Pullmans would be great. Also some of the other Maunsell Coaches would be great aka the high windowed stock. Although going somewhere completely different, how about some Pre-Grouping designs like the SECR Push Pull stock or LBSCR Paneled bogie coaches. I'm sure there would be plenty of options with regards to livery with them.

              Cheers,

              Jon

                  As others have said; updated Collet stock including a Restaurant Composite would get my vote, along with updated B-set coaches (close-coupling mechanism and NEM pockets) and maybe some non-gangwayed GWR suburban stock.

                    LMS period 1 & 2 coaches would be very useful, as would some decent Pullman Cars.

                      Another one here wishing for some decent N Gauge Pullmans - the 1920s 'K'-type will go handily with the Maunsells hauled by an Olive Green 'Schools' (or dare I say it, an 'N'), and the 1951 All-steels will look great behind a 'WC' on a SW express...

                      Also Diner First and Open Third that go with the Maunsells, and another vote for 'high-window' stock.

                        This is a minefield, as folk will invariably want something that applies to their region.

                        I think Dapol has done a great job with the Maunsells, compared to the Colletts, for example, as we are going to get six compartment brake composites alongside the six compartment brake thirds, and that's just a few inches of spacing for the bigger first class compartments. Ten years ago this would not have been considered worthwhile. And then we get four compartment brake thirds too. The Colletts have had to make do with just two moulds.
                        I would like some high window Maunsell variants though.

                        I think a number of people have asked for pre-war catering vehicles, and some push-pull stock for my M7s would be nice too.

                        Dapol need to make sure they don't replicate the Bachmann models, so a look at the Branchline OO models is a good indication of what might be produced in N, and it would seem that the Southern and Western are good regions for Dapol to specialise in (with Farish seemingly concentrating on LMS and LNER motive power and rolling stock).

                          Bachmann have said they would ideally like to produce something in both scales. But the answer is when and how long? They've had a Class 90 and Class 158 (and I'm sure many others) announced many moons ago and they've not even left the drawing room. So anything made in OO takes 5+ years minimum. Then the N gauge version will probably take 3+ years so 7 to 10 years. Bachmann advertise models under one spec and yet have varying standards also. Such a shame!

                        the Belmond Royal Scotsmann Mark 3s would be another good one along with GBRf 66746 in a book set.

                        Pullmans pre 1960 design, Maunsell coaches with high windows and Wagon-Lits all sound good to me as a Southern fan modelling South London in the late 50's, early 60's...
