Looking at the split chassis models i cannot see any difference between 

the early and last ones made in new box, body tooling looks the

same as is the chassis and detail parts except for an engine crew

added on the earlier models.

 I was refering to the split chassis versions, i have the DCC ready one

with the revised chassis, i would have thought there would be a

slight modifcation for the body to fit, the models i was looking at

are   31 - 708  and  31 - 713  Gazelle is the later model the same

just a re release.

Also, the earliest split chassis B1s (mainly if not entirely consisting of the ones marketed by Replica Railways but made by Bachmann with 'Bachmann' lettering on the keeper plate underneath) have a ring field motor in a large white plastic case, whereas later Bachmann split chassis B1s have a more orthodox motor, either a can or an open frame, I can't remember which.  The ring field motored versions are by and large much noisier, probably not surprisingly.
