Title: Bill and Ben Release Date
Post by: James The Red Engine on June 30, 2010, 11:33:26 AM
Hello,
I pre-ordered my Bill and Ben models off of WholeSaleTrains.com and I was wondering when Bachmann is going to release the models.  Last I knew it was sometime in June, but today is the last day of June so where are they? 

Please respond,
James ;)

According to the lady I talked on the phone with at whole sale trains, both my new Bachmann Percy and Bill should be arriving sometime at the end of July.  She also told me Ben would be delayed as Bachmann is releasing him later than Bill. 

Mr. the Bach-man, do you know anything about Bill and Ben coming out at separate times? ???

why would Bill and Ben get released at separate times? They both use the same tooling, and same paint all except for the names.

Don't say anything as harsh as that. It is only a week or two off from your desires. You will not die because of it. At least they are being released this year. Donald and Douglas might not even be released until the next year comes around.

I'd say that mid to late September for bill and ben. No later than October for the release. Seems reasonable to me.

Pointless speculation that was already confirmed/denied in another topic.  ::)
