My bank manager hates them!

 

 

But, hey, let him!

 

Superb anouncement, some excellent loco choices for us kettle fans, and a nice choice of steam-era rolling stock too.

Quite  'thin'  on the motive power side of things,  nothing  really  to grab my attention unfortunately,  ....unless there is more to come  later!

A 64XX and hawksworth autotrailer, could do with them, although I expected Hornby to do these. I have a photo oif a 64XX at Aylesbury in black with a lined out green cab, bet that livery won't be released.

 

I was going to draw up a 64XX as a 3D print looks like they have saved me the trouble now.

Well, 2Fs... that'll do! Some modelling to be done to create 2Ds... but yes... HAPPY!

 

EDIT: Thank you Bachmann!!!

No locos I thought I wanted, but overall this seems a wonderfully ambitious and imaginative programme.

Well, that should be a pretty easy conversion to a 74XX, and a good basis for a 54XX too. The lined BR green version is going to be extremely popular!...

John and I were right to hold back on LNER Thompson corridor stock. We produced a brake third  then pulled the plug! As far as guesses go, I got the LMS Engineers Inspection Saloon right and one wlll def be added to Greenfield (as will a Stanier 2-6-0). Roll on the resized images....Bachmann's programme that makes Hornby's look decidedly weak.

Oh yes he - and I wonder which autotrailer it will be?   But I see we have a battle of the Shunters' Trucks coming up over the horizon (and Bachmann also talking about 'BR grey' livery for them, odd) which could be quite amusing although no doubt a fairly clear winner will emerge - unless both are made on the same production line of course.

 

Overall an interesting range of announcements with some clever choices.

 

PS And a Wickham trolley - really ought to get one of those as I travelled on one on the last rail movement ever to do the full length of teh Bridport branch in both directions, excellent reminder of a lovely sunny day's work (yes, it really was work)

Some pretty inspired choices there. The 64xx, E4 and Stanier Mogul will go very well.

great line up, Stanier crab is the one I want the most. 24/1 looks interesting too.

 

happy for the western region lads with the warship too.

2Fs, good. Retooled Thompsons, good. Lots of good stuff, though nothing that I have to try and find cash for immediately (phew!).

Will repeat request from other thread, have 25kv models got a future with Bachmann (there is a new 85 listed though) as I can't get to the collectors club day.

However locos aside

MK 2f, war flats, and curtain sided and tanks for the intermodals -thanks Bachmann!

What is the collectors club loco by the way!

Cheers

Mark

The Brighton E4 didn't get pull-push equipment, but saw service off the Brighton as far as Salisbury, IOW, Sheerness and Hawkhurst. Very useful choice as well as having the not-unexpected Bluebell tie-in.

Mark 2 air-con stock topped the 2012 poll so that part of the announcement is not a huge surprise, though nevertheless very welcome. :yahoo:

 

Very pleased to see lots of other coaching stock featuring and the locos are good choices too, especially the NBL Warship.  I wonder if they will model the marks of the fire damage:

Will try to digest the remainder of the list later.

May I say "thanks very much" to Bachmann for the E4 and Birdcage stock, and for what looks like a very good and varied selection.

 

Could I ask (tongue in cheek), what are ;

 

44-173                   Brick Servicing Depot  ( How do you service a brick ??? )

 

and

 

44-234                   Low Relief Public Convenience  ( the mind boggles ! )
