The Barwell manufacturer reveals its British railway announcements, in a video update presented by its Communications Manager, Richard Proudman.
Bachmann Europe has unveiled its latest new model announcement video. The quarterly update from the manufacturer has seen a number of new liveries and DCC sound additions carried out to its range of recent Branchline OO gauge models such as its H1 and H2 'Atlantics' for OO scale, while forthcoming models such as its 94XX 0-6-0T 'Panniers' will see additional new sound versions. Its Class 108 DMU makes a welcome return too, in the attractive BR green with speed whiskers, joining its blue/grey livery expected in December.
Further highlights to the Branchline range include Class 57/3 variants with and without DCC sound, covering DRS 'compass' livery and WCRC maroon. meanwhile, its Class 117 DMU is to be made available in BR green with speed whiskers, BR blue/grey and Network SouthEast liveries with DCC sound, each model fitted with twin speakers, one per car. Its GUV will appear in Intercity Motorail livery and its SR 'pillbox' 25T brake van is to emerge in SR brown livery.
Special edition models include a 'Pride of Britain' locomotive and aircraft pack of 66731 Captain Tom Moore with 'Spitfire' and 'Hurricane' models for 'N' and 'OO'. The 4mm:1ft scale variant will be available with a sound-fitted locomotive, too. Its 'Thomas the Tank Engine' and Scenecraft ranges see new additions, the latter with buildings and structures for 'N' and 'OO' gauge modellers.
Joining its EFE Rail range is a new Class 58, 'Beattie' Well Tank, LSWR 'gatestock' and Cargowaggon for 'OO', plus 20T 'shark' and JIA bogie hoppers for 'N'.
