Title: 2013 'Annie' & Big Hauler request
Post by: Ted Yarbrough on January 05, 2013, 05:13:58 PM
Mr. Bachmann,
 Please update the 'Annie' with paint schemes like those offered on the
Rio Grande C-19. Flying  Grande herald and spelled out road name would both be FANTASTIC. This would give you more sells for little investment (repainting does cost to set up, but nothing like a new mold). Also, possibly put the C-19 tender with the 'Annie', giving it a total different appearance from past issues (you might use the 'Annie' trucks to same some money, again).
 I would LOVE to see green Big Hauler D&RGW passenger cars offered by Bachmann. No one offeres this paint scheme in 1:22 scale rolling stock currently (and only one company did one run of those and they are SOLD OUT). This would be a great addition to the Bachmann line-up!
 One last request is to offer the Lil Big Haulers in real road names. That bumble-bee loco sure is cute and with D&RGW on it, it would be even better! Kids and adults would like real road names.
  I don't know when the 2013 catalog will be out (soon I guess), but I hope to see something really great for us 1:22 scale guys.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

get some coaches on ebay. krylon "hunter green" matches LGB fairly close. krylon "chrome" matches the b'man and LGB roofs. when shopping, pay attention to the battery vs track power option.

Gunrunner,
 I have painted and lettered several locos and several sets of passenger cars, but I like factory paint jobs the best!
Happy Rails To You,
Ted
