I agree with you. I'd be willing to pay at least 50% more than the current price of an OO engine for an HO one. A Black five must surely be top of the list.

As I said on another thread - consider an OO modeller who wants a better scale/gauge combination. They can either go EM or P4 which would involve ripping up all their track and starting again as well as having to adapt or change all rolling stock in one go. A change to HO would involve no change to track (unless you wanted closer centres for double track lines) and rolling stock could be changed slowly. You could even run a train of HO on the same layout as OO for a while. I don't think that it would look too bad as a temporary measure as long as there were not items of one scale in the same train as items of the other scale.

But let's be pragmatic; it won't happen.

Cheers, Robert.
