  1. The latest Bachmann Times states it was identified that a “small improvement” to the mechanism could be made, and as a result the model was delayed. Delivery is now projected for “the first half” of 2021.
  2. And here’s a YouTube link for anyone who wants to see a production example in action.
  3. Gosh, that’s a beautiful machine. This last brief period of waiting might just be the hardest so far!
  4. I received mine a few days ago from Model Railways Direct, who sadly seem to have sold out. But they are out there!
  5. Looking forward to turning the air blue as I once again struggle through another disgustingly difficult spot-the-difference!
  6. Anyone else have their pre-orders for these coaches cancelled by Hattons? Just had an email informing me they were “unable to secure the stock to allocate to your pre-orderl, hopefully they haven’t fallen out with Hornby as well as Bachmann!
  7. A full rake of these are going to look fantastic! I’ll leave that to someone with a fatter wallet than I to prove, though. Looking forward to my TPE set arriving more than ever!

  12. Do you have too many locomotives? Are you sick of complaints your DCC sound is just too loud?
  13. Thank you for the helpful reply, I had thought Hornby had sold out weeks ago and didn’t think to check again.
  14. Is anyone aware of these available to pre-order anywhere? I had a set of three ordered from A Popular South Yorkshire Retailer that seems to be about to be cancelled.
