Mr. B.,

Any idea when Thomas the Tank Engine (58741) will be back in stock?

Everybody seems to be sold out, and I need a couple of replacements for a display layout.

There are many online stores that sell Bachman Thomas. Other than eBay. Amazon etc. and cheaper too. You don't have to buy straight from Bachmann. Smarter not to actually.

Usually cheaper too. Most retailers discount to some extent.

The problem is just about all of the "usual sources", including Bachmann's own on-line store, I've checked are sold out of the specific loco (58741) I'm looking for. And I don't really want to buy an entire set just to get the locos. That's why I'm wondering if anyone at Bachmann has any word on when it will be back in stock.

Hobbylinc still has him in stock.

If Bachmann is going to be ordering another shipment of Thomas models from China, my best guess would be that they would arrive sometime in the summer.

I have watched the online store atleast once a week almost since new year and what I have been wondering about is how long bouth Thomas and Percy has been out of stock. There has been some of other engines that has been marked "Sold Out" that they have got back in stock in no more than a month, but Thomas and Percy has been marked as "Sold Out" now since atleast around january sometime. AND if you take a look in the online store today you will see 3 engines marked "Sold Out"... Thomas, Percy and James, the 3 first engines that desperately needed an update compare to the newest engines + the last of those 3 has been rumored about an update for a while now. so maybe the two others also??

Just a theory.. Roll Eyes
