Ok, but instead of double posting, try to use the modify button.

so anyway, if it is the salt wagon, to me the colour scheme that would suit TT 4 is creamy yellow of light rusty brown.

Already got 1, 2, and 3. Just curious on what the fourth would look like. Huh?
Could be the face of

on a Salt Wagon or Ventilated Van

Just to be frank, I'm not ruling out the possibility of a CGI face on Troublesome Truck #4, but I hope it's a model face

Personally, I do hope TT#4 is another van to the range instead of a tanker, wagon, etc. As much as I like the Close Shave van, I think it's a little big when compared with other cars in the range. I would hope for something like this...



The vans from many episodes used for carrying fish, fruit and other goods, seen around Sodor quite often in the TV series, especially at the docks.  Smiley

So Far, getting a lot of responses:

1st place: The Old Van from A Close Shave: although a kit is available for this wagon, it is a high demand.
2nd place: Salt Wagon: another high demand due to it being discontinued, except in the Salty set.
3rd place: 77026 Ventilated Van: that surprises me as it is being used for the re-design Thomas Christmas Set

I posted this in another thread, but I thought I'd bring it up here.  I was checking out Troublesome Truck 4's page and there is shipping weight listed.  It is different amongst most of the rolling stock pieces except the ice cream wagon.  So I'm convinced based on that information that it will be the same van used for the ice cream wagon, only repainted with a new face on it. 

Links for comparison if anyone wants to check it out:

I think we will most likely have a photo in a month or so from now since it took Bachmann a long time to get a photo of Troublesome Truck 3 the year it was announced, but that's just my best guess.

I check the salt wagon's weight and it is a quarter of a pound at 0.25ibs. So if a future troublesome truck is weighted 0.25ibs, that should be a good indication that it will be  a repainted salt wagon with a face.

If it is a salt wagon, here's a speculative idea on what it might look like, I think:



Of course, no promises that this is what TT4 will look like...

My theory is that it will be a salt wagon, ventilated van, or a regular truck with a CGI style face.
