Bachmann announced their 2017 (and probably well beyond) release at the weekend, and also the unfortunately much smaller number of Farish N gauge releases. I have put a few pre-orders in, for if and when they arrive. I just hope they don’t all get released at the same time… So here are my orders. (Pictures from the Hatton’s web-site, mainly of equivalent ‘OO’ trains.)
Pick of the bunch is the SECR Class C 0-6-0. That came out of the blue! One wishes that Bachmann would put the shrink ray onto some of their other OO models. The SECR green livery is tempting, but I will go for the early BR one to be consistent. These locos are a good choice for a model, as a few lasted close to the end of steam in 1966, albeit as Ashford works shunters.
Of course, we are still waiting (3 years or so)…
