I hope to see Peter Sam this year.  It is my own personal taste, but having two orange, a scarlet and a yellow engine doesn't bring much color.

Just like you guys, for HO Scale, I would RATHER see Daisy, but at a realistic standpoint, we may or may not get an engine announced this year, considering Paxton's still not out yet. If we do, Sidney seems like the most possible choice, or for engines with new toolings, we could get Stanley or Ryan. Porter sounds like a long shot because of his scaling issues. Philip seems too small for HO.

For Narrow Gauge, I've got hopes to see Peter Sam get announced. Until the announcements, we've got only Rusty to anticipate. Hopefully, Sir Haydn will be out of overhaul by 2019, so we can eventually get Sir Handel.

For Large Scale, I'd rather see Bill and Ben, but at a realistic standpoint, we'll most likely get 'Arry and Bert (who did poorly in HO) or Paxton. If it has to be a Class 08, Paxton would be a much safer decision. Like we've said a while back, 'Arry and Bert would be suicide for the Large Scale range.

IIRC, Oliver took a long time to come out, and we still had Rosie announced the next year. I feel like we've had similar instances in the past with engine announcements. Paxton was announced in 2017, and on average, it does take about a year at best, and two years at worst for an engine to come out. This isn't really anything new to the Thomas range.

I think that the flat cars that Metal mentioned (found at the bottom of the previous page of this thread) is a fantastic idea. I could imagine them doing very well in the market, especially since there is such a demand for the discontinued flat car with paint drums. Iron girders and steel pipes would be great examples of loads. Timber is another load that I thought of.



This goes to show that there is so much that can be done with the flat car.

In addition, if I am not mistaken, the announcements are now less than one month away. Becasue of this, I thought that now would be a good time to make my lists of what I think Bachmann will announce and what I truthfully hope that Bachmann announces, just as JD417 and Chaz did.

What I think Bachmann will announce:

HO:
Ryan
Ventilated Van - Explosives
Spiteful Brake Van

Narrow Gauge:
Peter Sam or Duncan
Brake Van (Light Brown)

Resin Buildings:
Ffarquhar Station
Narrow Gauge Double Engine Shed

Large Scale:
Paxton
Red Coach
Red Brake Coach

What I hope Bachmann will announce:

HO:
Daisy
Flat Car (2-3 with different loads)
Spiteful Brake Van

Narrow Gauge:
Peter Sam or Duncan
Brake Van (Light Brown)

Resin Buildings: (In priority order as I do not expect Bachmann to make all of them in one year Wink)
Narrow Gauge Double Engine Shed


Neptune Refreshments


Castle Ruins (Season 7)


Ffarquhar Station


Large Scale:
Edward
Red Coach
Red Brake Coach
Lady Hatt

All in all, as long as Daisy and/or at least one new resin building is in the 2018 announcements, that's all that I will need to feel content.
