What is the difference between this model and the main range 32-983 announced a couple of weeks ago? Will it be in gloss finish?

Hi

 

You will get the error message unfortunately because we haven't charged you anything.  A glitch I'm afraid that we didn't anticipate but will get sorted asap.

 

The 'failed' orders show up in the website back office so we can see them all. (No matter how many times you try!)

 

 

You can inbox your name and I will confirm the order is in the sytem

 

Cheers

Sandra

Maybe it'll come in a wooden box?

You weren't wrong that i'd like this Sandra! I'll take one of each please, though that said i'm also encountering the same error message as above so only done the registration for the 1 model. Will this be made in Gloss like most other recent models?

It looks like the postage costs have been charged to your card.  I'll sort that out for you.

I'm in for both. Given that 66779 was named on my birthday and I took the day off to travel & attend the ceremony on the day, I can't really miss this one.

 

Cheers!

a finely detailed model of Class 66 Evening Star, produced by Bachmann UK

 

Does this mean that the Bachmann 66 is at last being retooled?

Also got the error to payments pages and gone for a model of both. Would be interested to know what the supposed detail variations are, or any idea of expected price. 

 

TIA

My guess would be the brass bell and etched nameplates.  Unless Bachmann are going to do some work to actually bring their 'shed' up to today's standards...

Terry.

Reserving your model puts you under no obligation at all, its just so we have a fair idea of how popular it is going to be and of that I'm sure.

 

If you reserve one now and don't want one at the time for the price or whatever reason you just say no.

Just to stop people getting the annoying error message, I've added a reservation fee of 10p.  All fully refundable or donatable of course!

I've made a reservation for 1 of each, which will supercede any attempted orders placed last night when I was getting the error message. Being honest, the reservation for the 9F is just speculative, in case the 2 locos come in a wooden presentation box type affair as a twin pack. Steam locos aren't really my thing.

 

As for Class 66's, well, a man needs a Shed or 2, or 14 & counting in my case ;)

Having got as far as the error message last night to try and reserve one, do I have to do it again to reserve one for 10p?

Agree with Scottish-excile you can't really ever have too many sheds they are the modern day black 5 or class 47. Think I will see what the difference is from main range model before I decide which to go for, but I already have a Bachmann Evening Star 9F so not one for me this time.

I have to say the Bachmann model of 92220 is superb and hope there's sufficient interest for another run of the model.
