Bachmann launches 2015/16 programmes

 

 

Bachmann Europe Plc having reached its 25th anniversary year in 2014 has again announced a number of exciting new developments across various scales.

 

Graham Hubbard, Managing Director of Bachmann Europe Plc, said today “as a company we continue to meet new challenges. Our parent company, Kader Industries, has faced a major reorganisation which involved transferring plant and production from a former factory into the main Kader complex. Faced with continuing price rises across the board, we have taken some difficult decisions but will continue to produce top quality products to meet the increasing demands of railway modellers”.

The new products announced today are:

 

94xx Class 0-6-0T

The Great Western Railway, and later British Railways, constructed more than 2,400 0-6-0 Pannier Tank locomotives, a type synonymous with the GWR.   Instantly recognisable by their extended smoke-box, 210 of the 94xx class locomotives were built to the design of F W Hawksworth, with construction beginning in 1947. The first ten examples were the very last locomotives to be built by the GWR at Swindon, with British Railways employing private contractors to construct a further 200 examples.  Although the model is brand new to Bachmann Branchline - it is not the first time that a Bachmann company has produced a 94xx. Graham Farish produced a OO model between 1961 and 1979 which has not been available for many years.

35-025                   94xx Class 0-6-0T No. 9402 in GWR Green

35-026                   94xx Class 0-6-0T No. 9487 in BR Black with early emblem

35-207                   94xx Class 0-6-0T No. 9479 in BR Black with late crest

 

 

Return of the J72 0-6-0T

 

jpg52.jpg

 

The J72 was the first locomotive which launched Bachmann Branchline on to the UK market 25 years ago.  Due to the split chassis design and its inability to easily accommodate DCC, the locomotive has not appeared in the range since it appeared as part of the Kader 60th Anniversary set.  The J72 returns with a new chassis that will have an 6PIN decoder socket fitted.

 

Designed by Wilson Wordsell for the North Eastern Railway as the E1 Class, 113 locomotives were built between 1898 and 1951, the last under British Railways ownership. The LNER designated them J72 Class after 1924. The first withdrawal took place in 1958 and the last in revenue service was taken out of traffic in 1964. Two remained in Departmental Service until 1966/7 with one of them Departmental No. 59 being preserved as ‘Joem’ and carrying its former British Railways No. 69023. It currently works on the Wensleydale Railway.

 

31-060                   J72 Class 0-6-0T No. 8680 in LNER Lined Green

31-061                   J72 Class 0-6-0T No. 69001 in BR Black with early emblem

31-062                   J72 Class 0-6-0T No. 69028 in BR Black with late crest

 

 

Class 450 Desiro

 

jpg51.jpg

 

The Class 450 is a member of the Desiro family for which Bachmann Branchline already produce the Class 350 variants, the Class 450 EMUs were built by Siemens for South West Trains. A total of 127 four car units are currently in traffic on SWT long distance routes in and out of London Waterloo.

31-040                   Class 450 No. 450073 in South West Trains livery

31-041                   Class 450 No. 450127 in South West Trains livery (weathered)

 

Class 70/8

 

jpg55.jpg

 

The latest development of the Class 70 is the 70/8 version with 10 locomotives now in traffic with Colas Rail. This model differs from the initial releases by the addition of air duct boxes on each side and a revised cab design.  The air duct boxes are also being fitted retrospectively to some Freightliner locomotives.

 

31-590                   Class 70 No. 70015 in Freightliner livery with air duct boxes

31-591                   Class 70 No. 70805 in Colas livery with air duct boxes

 

LNWR Coal Tank

 

jpg58.jpg

 

Although announced exclusively at the Bachmann Collectors Club open day last August, the Webb coal tank makes its first appearance in the Bachmann Branchline catalogue this year. First introduced in 1881, 300 were built over a 16 year period. Originally intended for heavy freight work, these locomotives were found to be well suited to passenger traffic and would soon find employment on branch line passenger services.

35-050                   Webb Coal Tank 0-6-2T No. 1054 in LNWR plain Black

35-051                   Webb Coal Tank 0-6-2T No. 7841 in LMS Black

35-052                   Webb Coal Tank 0-6-2T No. 58900 in BR Black with early emblem

 

 

V2 upgrade

 

jpg54.jpg

 

Benefitting from a new DCC compliant chassis in 2012, it is now the turn of the body moulding to receive new tooling.

31-566                   V2 Class 2-6-2 No. 3645 in LNER Black

31-567                   V2 Class 2-6-2 No. 60881 in BR Lined Green with late crest

 

 

Parallel Boilered Royal Scot and J39 go DCC

 

jpg53.jpg

 

 

The original Royal Scot Class 4-6-0 and the J39 Class 0-6-0 locomotives will return to the catalogue with new chassis which will contain DCC sockets.

31-285                   Royal Scot Class 4-6-0 No. 6130 ‘The West Yorkshire Regiment’ in LMS Crimson

31-286                   Royal Scot Class 4-6-0 No. 46163 ‘Civil Service Rifleman’ in British Railways Black

31-287                   Royal Scot Class 4-6-0 No. 46151 ‘The Royal Horse Guardsman’ in BR Green (early emblem)

The above will have 21PIN sockets

 

 

31-866                   J39 Class 0-6-0 No. 1803 in LNER Black

31-867                   J39 Class 0-6-0 No. 64792 in BR Black with early emblem

The above will have 8PIN sockets

 

 

Bachmann did state that a J50 and an S15 would have been announced but those plans were revised and other items included instead.

 

 

New steam crane

 

jpg59.jpg

 

A new Ransomes & Rapier 45 Ton steam powered crane is the key item of rolling stock to be introduced this year. These were found performing a number of duties throughout the British railway network on civil engineering and derailment work. When not in service these cranes were stabled at key motive power depots. With steam cranes remaining in operation throughout the 1970s and some lasting into the 1980s, many examples were purchased by heritage railways following withdrawal and now undertake duties such as lifting locomotive boilers and installing new track formations. Our model features a manually operated jib and hook whilst the crane body also rotates on the chassis.

A 94XX! I wonder if we'll see a spike in Paddington layouts in front bedrooms across the country?

 

The steam crane is also welcome; I'll be getting a GWR liveried one of those! But in terms of GWR coaching stock, back to the kits...

 

If there is a whinge to be made, it's that there's no new pre-nationalisation coaching stock at all - I thought Bullieds or Colletts would have featured. And absolutely no re-liveries of existing GWR motive power - I want a Modified Hall in Hawksworth livery!

For the uninitiated, can someone tell me what the chronological order of processes is in the status updates? I don't think the order is correct. Does it mean the Class 90 hasn't been started yet? TIA.

Well, certainly a surprise with no "show stopper" (or Merchant Navy  -  so just why were Hornby so churlish ?)

 

Fascinating to see the "Desiro" announced - it being though that 4-car multiple units were too expensive, they go and do a five car one !    ( At least it means that a 4-COR isn't too unlikely. )

 

The 45-ton crane is the star for me  -  EXCELLENT.

 

(P.S.  where is the 4-COR ? )
