If Bachmann produce some Anglia MK2fs and DBSO then they will definitely get my wallet this year! Oh and some more 90 liveries wouldn't go amiss :good_mini:

I wonder if that could mean a Class 303? As much as I like the Class 319's which I am hoping that Bachmann will consider this one. I would love a Strathclyde Class 303 EMU set.

I like how the 319 has got a lot of mentions, I assume everyone is happy for it to include the 769 is modelled? Though you could believe the 769 shall never work, it shall be a common sight by the end of this year and into the next on GWR, TfW and Northern.

In the words of Curly Jerome Horwitz Howard... I can hardly wait!

I think waiting is part of the Bachmann 'thing'. Announced 2020, decorated samples 2025. Released.....who knows.

Do you mean the new retooled Thompson s as released in tesk and crimson cream? If so absolutely why weren't they released first?

Hello,

 

2020 from Bachmann - personally the DRS Class 20’s coming out are probably my top item. (I know it’s not a new announcement but they are due this year) 

 

A useful item would be to add the WCRC MK2 brake coach to go with the TSO’s due out and hopefully the WCRC 57 in OO as seen in the 2mm range this year. I’m actually hoping for not too much to tempt this year only because Accurascale, Heljan and Revolution are producing items that are very relevant for my interests. Hopefully plenty of interesting models for those with different eras though. 
 

Whatever is announced I hope its a success for Bachmann as they have given us a lot of good models over the years.

 

cheers

Mark

Standard Bachmann practice unfortunately - don’t release the most popular livery first in the hope that some of us will settle for the ‘nearest’ match to our needs first and then buy the livery we really want when they deign to release it. They got me with the portholes but I’ve stayed strong and not bought any famine and cream Thompson’s. Yet!

A third vote for that. Someone really needs to do a Class 303 in this new decade.

I'd buy a pair that's for sure, not that I even have any wires up yet!

The point I wasn't raising was that by the time the Exec livery arrived the Mk3 sleepers were beginning to be stored  as the services were withdrawn apart from Anglo Scottish and Penzance.

It was later than that before the big run-down of Sleepers following various decisions to chop the ECML ones and concentrate on a smaller number of longer trains on the WCML. Then (1991/2?) the Cross-Country Sleepers got withdrawn. I think all or nearly all bar accident victims from the Mk3 sleeper fleet would have made it into Swallow, let alone executive.

A few more liveries on the 150 Wouldn't go amiss either, with a few more of the more challenging liveries - I.e Wessex Trains, Valley Lines or FGW Local Lines. 

I suggested two 150/2's to them directly at a show; original "running man" Sprinter logo (as worn by all 85 of them and a fairly small adjustment from the Regional Railways version) and the Wessex Trains purple with pink doors. I'd go as far as suggesting a second Regional Railways release with different numbers and destinations would sell now that it's been nearly a decade since the original 150270 with Leeds and York, and that is getting very scarce now. 

 

Reading through this thread shows one thing- everybody wants something different! Doesn't give them a clear direction to head in other than to play catch up on old promises.

My hope, now that Bachmann's pipeline seems to be functioning again, is that they will have at least 1 item that they announce be at the EP stage already - a demonstration that they have turned the corner from their recent woes.

We can but hope.  I realise that there’s more to this than simply extracting digits, and that it’s not all under Barwell’s control, but it’s a very damaging reputation to have.

If not commented above, I’d expect a formal uk launch of their Thomas range.

Sleeper services contracted throughout the 80s - the Northwest services went in 1983

 

I used to see the stored stock at Crewe Basford and recall it being blue/grey.

 

Maybe they simply never got used and went straight to storage as it became apparent there was no use for these?

My guesses for this year's announcements:

 

New tooling:

LMS original Royal Scot

LNER ex-GCR N5 0-6-2T - to complete lineup of Big 4 0-6-2Ts

Class 319 

 

Mk2f DBSO with gangway at cab end removed 

 

GCR 6-wheel brake van

SER 6-wheel brake van (one survives on Kent & East Sussex) http://www.ws.rhrp.org.uk/ws/WagonInfo.asp?Ref=9280

 

Reliveries:

 

SECR birdcage brake 3rd in departmental black

LMS Porthole BTK in blue/grey

Mk2fs in Anglia livery

Class 150/1 in Silverlink livery with First Great Western branding

Class 150/2 in Provincial livery

I am hoping for a Scottish 47/4 in large logo with highland stags or west highland terriers from around 1985/6.  I don't know why Bachmann are so reluctant to release a Scottish 47/4 when they release Scottish 37/4s seemingly every year.
