Any price increase is pure speculation. Give em hell when it happens but for now there is nothing to confirm or deny such action.
Having just announced their price for the crane and been widely condemned it would be commercial suicide to announce another increase so soon after the first.


I would like to say this is as you say "Pure Speculation",however the reality is that this is the norm for Bachmann, who have hiked prices each time the new range/catalogue is released.
Time will only tell if I'm right, but past form confirms my post.
Some folk keep buying their products whatever the price.

Fair enough. I’m not a big Bachmann purchaser as they tend to shy away from GWR and it takes at least three livery shots before a shirt button or Great Western livery appears rather than GWR by which time I’ve usually beaten them to it with a kit. 64xx is a classic example. I hope you are wrong but only time will tell.

I nearly went into panic mode when I saw March April, this on top of P class, B4, Heljan 07, then I saw it was 2019!

I didn't really know where to post this, but I thought that the sort of people interested in the 45-tonner would possibly be interested in their smaller (and odder) relatives.  This is volume 3 of the series ;

I take it that this title is yet to be published?

 

Having bought the first two volumes, I will be in the market for the third, but I've seen no notice of its publication.

As noted, the publishing date, ACCORDING TO AMAZON, is 30th September 2018.  However, publishing dates do tend to slip backwards nowadays.
