That new 4-6-0 coming from Williams by Bachmann (as pictured on our O Gauge Railroading forum in the Weekend Photo Fun thread) sure looks sharp!  I can imagine several of them finding a home on my layout in the future.

The photos were taken at the York Train Meet, and I imagine they are of a pre-production prototype.  I'm confident the Bach-Man will provide more information in the near future.

If your loco is too heavy to lift, you'd better be able to ride in, on or behind it.

Though I'm sure I'll buy the C&O very, that Southern is sweet.
Any chance Bachmann will offer an undecorated unit?  I'd like to letter one for Hocking Valley RR.

About the only "complaints" I've heard so far (and those were based on the pre-production model seen at the York Meet) relate to what some view as an oversize tender and the oversize rods on the locomotive.  I'll just have to see one up close and personal when they come out, and I'm sure we'll want to do an in-depth product review for the magazine.

Is the tender based on current WBB tooling?

The engine and tender are both new tooling.

Looks very nice.

Is there a chance this will be available by late fall? Would like to have one for "carpet central" duty around the Christmas tree.

CM&StP (Milwaukee Road) or CB&Q (Burlington Route) would be nice on the next runs of the 4-6-0 and 2-8-2.

I might go for one lettered for the Great Undecorated Railroad with white trim. But first, I'd want to do an eyeballs-style examination of the smokebox number plate (I'd prefer something detachable like the G gauge Big Hauler).  I also hope that the pilot is removable and can be replaced by something that looks a bit more to scale.

Seriously, the tender does look a bit large for that class of engine.
