Where are you from, we are always looking for spares...

Thanks Chaz,

Since posting had a major score in the fact the seller posted another up for bidding, I persuaded him to switch to buy it now and he subsequently had a third! So thatís 3 for £75 including postage best deal ever!

Rubyís Railway is exactly as it sounds, not a club layout but a doting fathers build for his daughter. It is entirely my work and currently consists of two loops, one smaller inner loop one outer all around a pond, once winter servicing and the new tunnel construction are finished, Iíll post pics. Iím hoping her interest doesnít fall off too much, too soon!

We have the entire Bachmann range to date, with two sets of Annie & Clarabel and Emilyís Coaches, 5x Coal Wagon and now 5x Tar (maybe 6) we have 3 Thomas locoís but am on the lookout for a second Percy to recreate the Ghost Train...

So as you can see we are very big supporters of Large Scale Thomas and would love to see it flourish, it disappoints me that branding decisions via Mattel may hurt choices that could keep Bachmann successful in this Scale, and only wish there were more Ruby Railways of our size to keep investment going 😢. Fingers crossed for a brighter future 🤞🏻.

Many thanks for interest and will get those pics up soon....

Chaz,

I agree with your logic if you're looking at Thomas in isolation, however the huge appeal of a pannier tank for customising and with stock to pull i'm sure it would sell out which would be a welcome result for Bachmann.

In other news we're thrilled to have got a 4th tar wagon for £25 including postage from eBay @ buy it now! the cheapest we've got any thing before was a second Annie & Clarabel for £45 this wagon is a fantastic late night find.

This thread is a frustrating reflection on some of my concerns regards the Large Scale Thomas offerings,
Firstly how like with many Large Scale threads itís got hijacked into a discussion about HO topics and secondly I really wish Admin would wade in and give us hope, even if it was a general high level comment (e.g: Thanks for your concern, but we can confirm Bachmann have a license to produce Large Scale Thomas products until 2023.) at least that means investment of some kind?

Help us Admin-Wan Kenobi youíre our only hope....

Well it was true to say that here at Rubyís Railway we were more than disappointed with the announcements this year, whilst in dodgy economic times we accept recolours are a cost effective solution, weíd have preferred box vans and coaches.
In desperate need for a new loco the loss of Diesel was massive, we thought that it may not have been at the top of lists before but offered lots of hopes for recolours and customisation which is what this is all about. Duck would have been a great bet on the back of this and if accompanied by red coaches or Toad, would be a non-compromising offer that would sell out. (Willing to bet on it £$ Bachmann).

Anyway to the more positive, the lighter days here have led to work starting on the railway for this season and the cave under the waterfall todayís mission with rain forecast it's a battle of will!

Please Bachmann reward our faith! Weíre hanging on in here.

We will press on with our customs... however now worried that diesel has been cancelled.... so may have to review all thoughts of more purchases, a really concerning move by bachmann

Iím really hoping this is just an oversight!

Please Bachmann donít cancel it! We need Diesel!

To think it's just over a week until we get news... will the Large Scale Thomas fans be happy?Huh?

Our preferences

Duck or Edward
Red Coaches
Troublesome Van

more figures... Workmen, Mrs Kindly, Jeremiah Jobling

I'm still curious how they will produce the Spitful Breakvan as technically it is NE No13 like the one they've already done in Large Scale.

However with only just over a month until we know what is to come (eventually) from 2018
we are hoping for:

Duck or Edward
Red Coaches
and to be honest either a van with a face as TT3 or a Cattle Van.

we would love more figures... and a total dream would be the Breakdown Train (Awesome)

So what would we like to see the next offering from bachmann to be in large scale???
12  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: Large Scale Thomas on: November 30, 2017, 04:17:34 AM
Fantastic Plowbender,

now thatís what we like to see genuine customs and effort. Itís such a shame how slow production of the large scale is, we crave more models and it would be great if they added accessories etc to the range.

We can dream...

Falcon - FYI
we posted the Red Coach custom earlier  on this thread, reply 20 on page two.

Another thing we're keen to see is other members custom builds in large scale. we have a secret project on at the moment and will debut in pics. Has anyone else done a custom? the best we've seen is the red brake coach.

The Spiteful Brakevan is a strange choice as technically that is the brakevan we have as in the books heís NW 13 however we may be getting the tv series version thatís just grey and has a face. As freight running without a brakevan is difficult weíve already repainted a second brakevan so any new brakevan is still more than needed.

I hope a second sound decoder becomes available with diesel on as our plan is to eventually switch to DCC but at the moment our focus is on earthworks and tunnel construction.

I wish theyíd be bold enough to make some buildings for the large scale.
