  1. There has always been duplication of models in the market place. Would fully expect Bachmann to announce revised versions of both 37 and 47, possibly initially aimed at different time periods to models announced to secure their place in the market. Their MD has always been keener on modern image rather than steam as it gives more liveries to produce out of one set of tooling, as he explained once.
  2. Excellent you are doing this. I suspect Bachmann were trying to force people to buy their Dynamis product probably to reduce their stock of them, by combining the Western Pullman with it. Bit of a farce. It is about time Bachmann were not so cocky in everything they do.
  3. Try TTC Diecast for good Lima bargains. Chris always has plenty of second hand in stock at reasonable prices. www.ttcdiecast.com.
  4. Trains4U - From people in the know at Bachmann, I was told the issue was not around the wholesale. The T&C state they do not want a retailer to compete with Bachmann. The issue arose when the 66 was announced which was in direct competition with Bachmann whether it was supplied to the trade or not. It took Bachmann some time to sort out what they were going to do and then discuss with Hattons. Discussions have reached their conclusion. End of story the world moves on. Other retailers should pick up increased business as a result.
  5. Big difference is that Rails are not going directly to China. They are commissioning models from another manufacturer. It is Accruascale that are the manufacturers. Kernow are going directly to China but are not making models which compete with anything in Bachmann's current range.
  6. Probably so that if anyone wants an EWS 47 they have to join the club to get one...Another ploy to get money out of you.
  7. It would suggest that they haven't sold that many so need to encourage sales or possibly they need to bump up sales to get cash in to pay for all their specials they have announced.
  8. There is also Northfields Model Shop at Ealing. Kent Garden Railways in Orpington who offer a good service and the Weybridge shop is Addlestone Model Centre in Station Road.
  9. Interestingly this reps loco is available not only in the south west area but also in Kent, Surrey and Sussex unlike the other South West Area Rep class 47s.
  10. Rails of Sheffield appear to be offering them at a discount 15% of RRP.
