I swear I'm not a spammer, but I just need to unload some Thomas stuff, mainly engines #1-9 in HO. All in great condition; Percy, whose funnel rim has come off, otherwise looks and runs just fine. PM me for pics and prices... I'd be happy to help you add to your "new acquisitions".

He's also available at TrainWorld last time I checked.

ayyy everybody

Still got plenty of Thomas stuff to sell including 9 Bachmann HO Thomas locos (the original eight + Donald, all in excellent- to near-mint condition), 3 Tomix N scale packs, and a bunch of other stuff. PM me if you're interested for pictures and prices. Just note that I'll be out of town until Monday, so I can message people but not ship anything out until then.

Looking very much forward to these announcements btw. I would be very satisfied with Peter Sam and/or Sir Handel along with proper NG coaches in blue or red, doesn't matter which color to me.

Now I've got everything I'm selling on eBay. Click here, and happy bidding.

I'm downsizing due to a move and unfortunately will have part with many of my Thomas engines :/ PM me for a list of items and prices, and I'll be glad to provide pictures and answer any questions.

No, and protip: you don't need to make a different thread for every question you have.

When is Rusty supposed to be debuting again?

Hi guys,

I'm modelling "Gallant Old Engine" as a standalone layout, but in testing the couplings on my 009 Peco coaches (and Rheneas) will not stay together on or while cresting grades. Should I invest in knuckle couplers, or look for another solution? I don't think I can soften the grades any more than they are at the moment (very steep, scalewise.)

@thomasgleek

Bachmann will never make any engine with more than 8 wheels (not including tenders obviously). They would be prohibitively expensive both produce and purchase, and as you noted they would require wider-radius curves that fans and parents will not want to buy for their children just to make the engines run without buckling and derailing.

My Rheneas has arrived at last as well, though I haven't opened it up for further examination or a test run. He does look splendid from the outside though, like some other members, I wish that the body paint wasn't quite so... orange, where it's supposed to be more of a vermilion. So far that's my only complaint, I'll see how it runs later today.

I can see brand-new merchandise for Edward and Henry slowing down rapidly in the coming months. Part of me wants to buy a spare Wooden Railway Henry before he's off store shelves...  Undecided

This is why I haven't waited for Black Friday and beyond to finish collecting the original "Steam Team" in HO. Using Amazon as the "standard" for low prices, I was able to get Edward for pretty cheap (around $55.) Henry was a tough find, though, and the lowest price I found was around $70. On Amazon he's at $84 right now, and Edward's at $79. If you're looking for them in HO, I'd pick them up quick, lest they sell out before the Black Friday madness.

Does anyone have an inkling that this extended sellout of Percy and James in HO is leading to a redesigned Percy as well as James for the Black Friday/holiday season? Total shot in the dark here, but the timing could make it possible; there's no way Bachmann wouldn't have another production run ready for the holidays at the very least.

Do Arry and Bert still even have roles in the TV series significant enough to warrant electric models in any scale? I haven't seen any episodes since around season 12.

Agreed with sparks, keep it simple. Pick from Knapford or Tidmouth and model one or the other. With either you could fit a bunch of engines as static models while operating one or two on separate circuits.

8 years and older is the specification recommended by Bachmann and most other manufacturers. I would agree with it.

P.S. your phone's "keyboard" is terrible
