I don't think Bachmann would ever consider releasing the diesels from the Mainland since they have no promotion or marketing going for them.  Since Paxton is now coming out in 2018 my money is definitely on either no new engine for HO, or at a push Sidney.

Yeah, I wouldn't expect a mainland diesel in the range. It was just a thought.

Now that Paxton is indeed delayed til next year, that means if Bachmann does announce an engine next February, Sidney is inevitable. I shouldn't get my hopes up for a new tooling, especially not Daisy. Worst case scenario is no new engine at all, like 2014.

If we get no new engine, then we'd definitely get one in 2019.

Here's my new speculation:

HO Scale:
Sidney
Explosives Van
Water Tanker
Troublesome Truck #6 (tanker)
Spiteful Brake Van

Narrow Gauge:
Peter Sam
Passenger Coach
Brake Van

Large Scale:

Iron 'Arry
Iron Bert
Water Tanker

The only thing that's holding Bachmann back from making Stepney is the fact that he still has yet to be rendered.

You mean Porter? Also, it looks like most of the releases are going to be of the British locomotive characters as of right now, plus it looks like they also want to release the BR Class 08 based characters for now, plus it wpuld be smarter to release Sir Handel or Peter Sam next for the narrow gauge line in my opinion.

Yes porter my phone keyboard has been playing up last few days. And I personally think that sir Handel will be likely one of the last. Least popular of the original 6 skarloey railway engines and makes more financial sense to go for an engine like Duncan or peter Sam who is more popular and will sell more units. Hence this year bachmann went for rusty not sir Handel Smiley as for class 08s I highly doubt that bachmann will release another class 08 just yet.  
But thank you for ripping apart my opinion Smiley. This is after all a thread where we voice our ideas for next in the Range.

He was just stating his thoughts on the likelyhooe of your choices. Not ripping apart your opinion. It's called discussion.

People are allowed to agree/disagree with different ideas as long as they are civil about it.  Duck's post was post was fair and honest and I even agree with him, but saying things like "thank you for ripping apart my opinion Smiley" just comes off as childishly edgy and is really unnecessary for this discussion.

Sidney might be the last Class 08 character to be made in HO Scale.

Bridlington diesels and Splodge would have to be obtained through modelling. Several modellers have made Splatter and Dodge. As for a Bridlington diesel, you'd have to paint the stepladders white, and it would be tricky to get the hazard stripes under the stepladders.

Here's what I want for 2018. This is just what I think Bachmann should release yeah they sound a bit far fetched but I promise you it is possible,

HO Scale
Hiro
Water Tanker
Troublesome Truck #6
Spiteful Brakevan

HO narrow gauge
Sir Handle
Red narrow gauge coach
Red brakevan

Large Scale
Gordon
Express Composite Coach
Express Brake Coach

These are my hopes for 2018. I'm not sure if anyone else can see this but Bachmann could make Gordon in large scale. Heres my opinion. Gordon's front bogie and trailing wheels could turn sharper curves and his middle wheel would have to be not flanged. Bachmann have produced several 4-6-0 locomotives that run on 4' diameter curves. I don't think a 4-6-2 is going to be an issue. My train dealer even says so and he's a proffessional model railroader. Granite Gordon would be in the $400 range like Emily as far as suggested price but he would so be worth it. So come on guys lets stay hopeful for this one.

What makes you think that Sidney might be the final Class 08 character to be made in HO Scale?

Would Henrietta still be possible or is she practically just out of the question now?

It would be intresting to see Henrietta in large scale and maybe Release her with a face in HO its not that hard to add a face and bachmann already has the tooling. Also I wouldn't be too surprised if the water tankers are released too in HO and eventually large scale again bachmann already has the tooling
