What did you expect? The nose-mounted dual Mars light was only used by the
Grande and CGW on the GP30. The nose _headlight_ was used by CB&Q (BN), CP,
ACL (SCL,SBD) and L&N, plus SP/SSW with both. How many sales do you figure
for each type, and which ones do you expect them to invest in to produce?

Of course they would have been better off to use the body with no nose
light for the Grande units and just let the modeler notch the nose and add
the mars light themselves, possible to do even on a decorated model.

Given that they have decided to change the fan spacing, perhaps a concerted
letter/email campaign might convince them to change their plans for the
Grande units as well. Send to:

That's L-L's homepage, Martin. Nothing there on either model that I could
find when I just checked. Is there a specific page that is not in the
visible directory?
