At long last, a loco arrives which I can truly get excited about. The Bachmann Class 90 and from what I can see, is something which really raises the game for AC traction locos. I have, whilst waiting for this, concentrated on getting a reasonable clutch of DB diesel locos, and where necessary re-branding and renumbering these into the newer DB style
08s 624 (Hornby TTS),
60s (DBS60007 Spirit of Tom Kendell TTS and 60100 DB Sound -fitted ),
66s (Ex EWS 66002, DB Cargo 66s 009 Sound fitted, 035, 065 and 136 Sound fitted.)
67s (DBS maple-leaf style-TTS) ,
but now the focus is going to be getting my first 90 into its new DB colours. 90042 Powerhaul is shortly about to head off to a secret paintshop to be reliveried into 90034. Why 034 I hear them say? well, its likely Bachmann will do an EWS or DB 90 in the second wave of 90s, from either, I will be able to re-brand/renumber this into one or two of the 90s i want in my fleet, so EWS ones, 020, 037 or 039 or DB, then 019, 028 or 036. I will obviously be keeping my fingers crossed that we see a Malcolm Logistics 90024, I also fancy a Scotrail 90021 as well, as its an old and retired livery but still present as such but as for 90034, its a simple repaint and a good one in that respect and a one off.
