Is it possible to (a) reach a consensus, and (b) choose say five
cars and (c) campaign heavily with the model manufacturers for
their production?

Then each year update the list bumping those that have been
produced and replacing them with cars drawn from the next five?

Didn't the SPH&TS recently ask for money up front for the
production of a recent flat car and guarantee the donor some cars
upon release? (Or something like that).

What is your favorite car worth to you?

Paul,

No need to come to a "consensus". Jerry Britton sentout a pole to
the PRR lists every year asking for the top 3 requests in a variety
of categories. He simply coalated the responses in each scale and
forwarded it to as many manufacturers as he could find. It is
remarkable over the years how many of the top cars and locomotives
have ended up being produced! Was if cause and effect or simply a
correlation? We may never know ;^)
