It's not that people don't want to answer, it's that they can't. We only know what Bachmann tells us and posting it on the forum rarely means you'll get insider info. Best to just wait for the February announcements.

They are charging almost identical prices for three weathered slate trucks in the UK vs. one un-weathered truck here in the US. Insane!

Sounds good, but remember the Skarloey railway engines, if thats what you're planning on running, are very expensive!

I've been thinking and I might put my 00 project to the side and get a small NG layout up and running- it's too exciting not to. You all have inspired me.

Sadly he's been discontinued as separate sale for a while, check eBay though as I've seen models floating around there very often. worst comes to worst you can always purchase his set and get 3 pieces of thomas dock-esque rolling stock (most of which is also discontinued ... a bonus!) or simply use another engine.

I would think a Salty model at the docks would be a nice touch (and cranky too) and based on what I know salty would be able to handle the same curves as thomas and percy if need be. rosie or oliver and some basic rolling stock would look pretty neat too.

so, so impressive grandpuff. please keep up the good work, and a side note: i think you should look into doing fearless freddie as your next project. i have a feeling he would look stunning if you took a whack at him...

Well...

See if you can spot the difference on the tender...surely Mattel/FP wouldn't have allowed Bachmann to make this minor change, yet leave the rest of James' flaws untouched, right? Indicates to me that maybe Bachmann just didn't feel any changes were necessary. Sadly, this re-release is far from what I and I assume many others were hoping for.

That is the best thing I've seen all day.  Smiley

I was really just asking, wasn't meant to be mean at all. It looks good aside from that, especially for a first attempt. Better than anything I could do

did you take some sandpaper to diesel's face before painting? looks a little bumpy..

i have donated and i suggest anyone who is able do so as well. It's rare that Thomas fans have the chance to save something so amazing from our history.

Hmm. Looking at that picture, somehow Bachmann knew to color the front side of James's tender (the side facing the cab) black, but none of the other parts. I wonder how.

I'm sure they didn't consciously choose to announce James over updating us about Rheneas. Patience is a virtue.

Except that's not what I said in my post... -_-

I said that I would have been a lot happier over hearing about Rheneas, and something tells me I'm not the only one who thinks this way.
All I meant was, they don't have control about which products are updated when. Therefore, what you or anyone might've preferred to see first wasn't what they could've shown.

I'm quite happy James is being updated. Might lead the way for more in the future.
