This loco does sound wonderful in comparison to many others, however one
statement you made will surely come back to haunt steam lovers if
manufacturers take your suggestion below seriously.
Don't get me wrong, I whole heartedly agree with you that steam lovers need
to make their wishes known regarding quality.
I'd suggest that almost anything is a possibility when it comes to
manufacturing, however, to design a beautifully running, realistic looking
steam loco here in the USA would end up costing much more than I think most
folks would be willing or able to pay for.
Shucks, I'll bet that many would gladly take on the project if they had the
money and expertise to make such a loco and could be assured they would
recoup their R&D costs when sales of said product commenced.
Now, if we were all rich, then money would be no object of concern......

My first impression is that this might very well be the product
to spur the steam runners to demand better engineering
from our Z scale manufacturers.
