Bill,

I wondered how long it would be before all those dies got used on some other brand still in production. The eggs were a popular item and should sell well, although I find the price point a bit high. I look forward to other products being re-introduced, maybe I can get some stream line passenger cars at more affordable pricing than on eBay.

Thanks Yardmaster,

Hopefully there will be more 1/29 items coming in the future!!   

Bob, I am sure the street price will look a lot better.

Does this mean Aristo's long-thought-about SD-9 is on the horizon? Wink

Seriously, I'm pleased to see it. I hope it's a harbinger of things to come.

Later,

Before a SD9 which would be a new mold I think one could reasonably hope that Dash 9 would making its way.  The old A company also had the excellent RS3 U25B and GP40.
I think revisiting these with existing molds might be a good way for Bachmann to 'stick a toe in the water'. 

Note these are all 1:29 and so was the Peter Witt. 

I think this would give Bachmann both a presence in more modern standard gauge in 1:29 to complement the 1:20.3 narrow gauge.  If so, success of some of the models mentioned would be an indication to the management to move forward with an SD9 (presuming the other A company ever gets around to it).  I note that other A company no longer even mentions the SD9 either and as for the GP60 which they said would be out this year that project seems to have gone way silent as well.

*Sigh*

Maybe a certain P named company might be convinced?  The Ludmilla diesel is something else, very well made.
