Title: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: darkdaniel100 on December 03, 2011, 07:33:18 AM
The years nearly over, what future large scale products would you like to see?

My Wish List:

Rolling Stock:

1:20.3 - logging disconnects - (I know other manufactures make these but if Bachmann could make a cheapish multi pack it would go down well)

1:20.3 Pulpwood Car - Bachmann already make these in ON30 and basically is a just a flat car with load.

Any other Logging/industrial related items. The log skidder was an awesome release!


Locomotives:

USATC S100 Class/SR USA Class 0-6-0T

How about an Annie with the Flying Frande herald (same colors as the Rio Grande Southern loco). Some new road numbers on the current rolling stock would be nice. Maybe, even a set of green D&RGW passenger cars.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

I have some suggestions for additions for the Thomas large scale range: A closed goods wagon and a "Guards van" both with removable roof (more "play value" than the tank wagons),  Toby & Henrietta (A wish from my 14 y.o. daughter!) I must admit that even I have become "addicted" to these excellent Thomas models.

i'll be redundant and request an EBT 2-6-2.  i realize the wheel arrangement was not all that common, but the engine size would be a great companion to Connie...(perhaps we could call it Peter or Paul) ... but the Maine narrow gauge railroad ran some 2-6-2's and i think there were some loggers as well.

 Enough wheels on the critter to allow good pick up from the track and the size is good for some longer trains....or protypically short one.
....and of course there is the parentage...the precursor to the wonderful EBT 2-8-2's.

I'll second the EBT #11, if only to keep me from having to build one myself. Of course, now that I'm starting my own C-19, you just know they'll do that instead. ;) Not that I'll remotely argue--I think a C-19 or similar inside-frame 2-8-0 would be very well received. They were used on narrow gauge lines all across the country.

Later,

K

i would like to see  more flying rio grande paint schemes on all cars and engines and a porter similair to the one availeble in On30. ill also take any rio grande C style consolidation or a small T-boiler shay.

Ted mentioned road numbers.  When I did that back a while I  caught blazes.

Still think it's good idea.   Heck,  I bought 3 accucrafts (with differnt numbers)  but just ! Bachman!!


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: ForThemPanzerz on December 05, 2011, 11:08:46 PM
i would buy more rio grande cars if they had it in different roadnumbers


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Loco Bill Canelos on December 06, 2011, 04:40:57 AM
More road numbers, and some new paint schemes on the 1:22.5 freight cars.


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: R. J. Raleigh on December 10, 2011, 09:41:05 PM
I still want a Spectrum C-16 in 1:20.3. An early woodburner for the D&RG would do nicely


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Mark Oles on December 13, 2011, 02:14:15 PM
I'd like to see some Strasburg Rail Road lettered big hauler product.  Could be a set, could be an Annie 2. 


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: glennk28 on December 14, 2011, 10:06:53 PM
how about a logging caboose (likr Swayne and West Side)---I know how to get Bachmann to do it--build my Hartford kit!  gj


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Chastity on January 01, 2012, 09:53:59 PM
Personally,

A AH&D ditcher or crane (or interchable parts) would fit the logging theme as well as a host of other narrow guage and even some standard guage (though at 1:20.3 it would oversize for standard gauge).

After seeing the magnificent RGS/D&RG caboose, I still cannot help but wonder about the Pacific Coast Ry caboose in 1:20.3, beautiful genericly looking side door job that still exists.

A redo of the Heisler might be interesting and possibly as a three truck model.

Another run of the 2-6-6-2T as a 2-6-6-2 with tender especially a Weyerhauser or Rayonir style tank tender.



Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Loco Bill Canelos on January 01, 2012, 10:27:09 PM
Crane would be nice!


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 06, 2012, 08:36:06 AM
OK, Bachmann, several have requested more Rio Grande stuff in 1;22 scale. How about it! Green passenger cars and Flying herald on loco? 2012 COULD be a great year!!!! ;D


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Mark Oles on January 11, 2012, 05:22:07 PM
Ted, would it have a paint scheme similar to their On30 2-6-0 with the green boiler?


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 11, 2012, 07:58:03 PM
Mark,
 The smaller version's paint is nice. I was wanting the more popular Flying Grande herald. Just like the Rio Grande Southern 4-6-0, but with the Flying Grande herald (since most of the Bachmann rolling stock has the same herald). I sure would like to see some new road numbers and some GREEN D&RGW passenger cars.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

How about a Connie with a metal gearbox, like the Annie now has?


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: glennk28 on January 12, 2012, 12:25:29 AM
How about the Annie with an SP-style Whaleback tender--Couthern Pacific, and Nevada-California-Oregon.

SP #s 8 or 9 withy Stephenson valve gear, #18 with Walschaerts.  gj   Also, Oacific Coast Railway had whaleback tenders.

Guess my tastes toward little industrial diesels are a minority versus the steamers listed so far: I'd like a 1/24 scale Plymouth WDT like the HO and N models - which are labeled MDT but M was 4 wheel, 6 wheelers were W.

One fantasy is for the Plymouth CR-8XT on page 140 of book Critters, Dinkys & Centercabs by Jay Reed.

Ventilated boxcars (like the ones available in On30).  I have a lot of watermellons that I need to ship!   :D

D&RG C-19 #315,  a Fine  smaller 2-8-0 that is currently in running condition.


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 13, 2012, 06:54:52 PM
Another request for Rio Grande! I sure hope Bachmann is listening. OK, when MIGHT we fined out any NEW FOR 20!@ Large scale offerings (sure hope there are green passenger cars in 1:22.5 and some nice repaints of the Annie, with Flying Grande herald and possibly a second with the green boiler and Scenic Line herald). ;D
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

The J&S passenger cars in a green livery would be a great addition to the yellow ones. I would buy them.
An annie with a flying herald too, or with a green boiler (Alamosa livery) and toilet seat herald
How about an undecorated annie with a wooden style cab (such as n178 bumble bee), and rounded domes, or an RGS 20 with this style cab ?


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 19, 2012, 08:30:43 AM
AMEN Corpet! Give us some more Rio Grande, Mr. Bach-Man!


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Railamer on January 19, 2012, 01:43:24 PM
I would also vote for a C-19 type inside frame 2-8-0, but I think that a modern mogul, similar to the On30 offering, would be a big hit.


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 19, 2012, 03:22:04 PM
A 1:20 scale mogul might be small enough to use with 1:22 also! Good idea! :)

MAKE MY DAY!  How about a 1.20.3 Rio grande "SILVER VISTA" ??   I'm still waiting and I bet the Rio fans are too.  Your "k" was, and this may be the next star of the rails?

How about a Connie with a metal gearbox, like the Annie now has?

Hear Hear !  !!  !!

Better still a simple replacement chassis with metal gears for the Connie  so that those of us with stripped gear Connies can get them working again.

You see, I still think that the Connie is the best model that Bachmann has produced.


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: Loco Bill Canelos on February 14, 2012, 04:26:51 PM
The Northwest Short line gear replacement for your Connie is a cheap fix at about $12 bucks, and so far have proven to be very durable with a much thicker web. The thin web on the original gear is what is breaking on the Connies.  It is an easy fix.  A whole new chassis with metal gears would almost as expensive as a whole new loco!!


Title: Re: 2012 Large Scale Product Wish List
Post by: rslater on February 15, 2012, 09:58:43 AM
I too, would love to have a "Silver Vista" along with a good sized turntable that can handle the K's

As for the Connie gear problem, get a BBT drive and forget about any problems.

Rick ;D ;D

If Bacchy is reading this, a covered grain hopper ( in 1:20.3) would be nice ?

Dear All,

".....a covered grain hopper ( in 1:20.3)"

Not sure putting up a link to different forum is kosher here...

So... use your favorite search engine on the term ' covered grain hopper "narrow gauge" '

If you see hminky's answer, you've found the thread I'm thinking of. 

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik
