Friends,
 Be on the lookout for the Progressive Insurance ad on TV. It has a nice industrial 2-6-0 Bachmann train running. This is NOT an endorsement for the insurance, but I do like the train! Good job Bachmann in landing the commercial.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

Nice,

Ted, Bach-man,

Ted, thanks for the link,saved me the trouble of watching the whole commercial.

It is the North Woods Logger set, for sure.  The Bachmann operating crossing gate was a nice touch as well as the Rio Grande Boxcar on the shelf.    Interesting that near the end in the all white scene they painted the train and the crossing gate white(what a shame), but the beer barrel tunnel and boxcar and other items on the shelves were removed and other items put on the shelves.

Bach-man was Bachmann involved providing the trains??

I've seen this commercial several times. I never realized that the train is a Bachmann product. Nice catch!
