Thanks Bach Man for posting the list.

I assume that the Northern Lights Christmas set has the 2-6-0, is this correct? I wonder what on earth made Walthers describe it as a diesel?

Is the Greenbrier 0-4-2 DCC equipped?

Thanks

Dear Bach Man

What happened to the open excursion cars that were announced last fall? Other items announced then have either appeared or were in the lists you have just posted.

The only interstate USA train travel I have done was New York - Boston on the regional (not ACELA) service - it was a pleasant, if not particularly fast, journey along the Connecticut coast. On that experience I would certainly be willing to try AMTRAK again.

I don't know if your going to Canada - I also travelled by VIA rail between Montreal and Quebec City - again a good journey.

On 3801

The loco is now with the New South Rail Transport Museum and will be operating excursions in 2007. See http://www.nswrtm.org/3801/. There was never any question of it not being preserved. The dispute is over who should operate it - I don't intend to take sides on that one.

Thanks for posting

I like the Gator!

If only the Bach man could be persuaded to bring the layout to a show in Australia.

I agree, this needed to be posted both on the ON#) and Thomas forums.

The 4-4-0 listed on the Walthers site as ON30 does appear, as Melinda posted, to be Large Scale. However the Northern Lights diesel set, at $305 retail, does seem to be ON30, as do the new roadnames for the 2-6-0 and 0-4-2t.

As Melinda noticed, Walthers have put up a list of newly announced Bachmann items. Not much new for On30, a few new roadlnames for some rolling stock, and for the 2-6-0 (unlettered but in bumblebee livery) and the 0-4-2 (Greenbrier and Big Run Lumber).

No indication as to whether these locos are upgraded at all or simply new names, Bach Man can you enlighten?

The most intriguing listing is a new set "Spectrum Diesel On30 Northern Lights Limited" No indication as to what is in it or what the locomotive is - the Davenport? - but then that shouldn't be called a diesel. Bach Man, have you any information on this? I understand that if Walthers have jumped the gun you may not be able to comment on these announcements yet although I assume that they are in the catalogue that is being released.

Are there any further ON30 announcements to come in the near future? - I have not been expecting many major ON30 announcements at this stage as these items tend to appear at the end of the year and under my reading of the new announcements policy  they would not be announced yet.

Not anticipating just yet
