Well sorry if Iím overwhelmed, I just canít help but imagine and dream who will be in high demand cuz I wanna see a really cool engine and not a overpaint one that all of us would love to see.

Well Cranky has a plastic chain so I don't see why can't they do the same to Harvey.
That's not what I said. It doesn't matter what it's made out of, an HO Scale model of Harvey would be too small for a business like Bachmann to make have a functional, raising and lowering hook and chain, either for costs purposes or because of functionality. It would just be attached to the arm and never raise or lower. Also, like Chaz said, his arm doesn't move up or down on the show or on his basis, thus he's be too tall for most people's layouts. To be honest, even though he has a real world basis that looks like that, I still wouldn't be surprised if the NMRA has a standard that blocks any model of that type of locomotive from being made.
Ok but does it matter if they made his arm fictional or not the company is now working also working in the UK so they should have enough budgets to produce new products and another thing how is he that small to make, are you comparing to like his other merchandises or what?

Well that's just what I also expect to see next year, which you can see from my signature.

Ok while Iím placing bets on Ryan, another engine that would be awesome and I really hope to see is Harvey the crane. How hard could it be to for Bachmann to make him besides the chain of his crane, any suggestions for me about him?

Team Ryan, I'm placing bets on Ryan cuz without him Daisy wouldn't have anyone to run the Harwick Branch Line.

So if they can do it to Paxton then surely they can to Sidney.

Exactly, the body is not problem at all but the face yeah that's something they had fix. I think what they should do is cut some of the parts that made the eyes widen some and adjust them close together as possible so it blends in with the mold face.

Over these 8 years we been getting more diesel engines with the same basis and so far the last one is literally Sidney, honestly I thought he would be the next engine produced along with Red Rosie but no they decided to make one character at a time which disappoints me. I really hope he gets made next, cause if it doesnít happen then Iím gonna regret it for the rest of my life. Anyways feel free to discuss this topic on what you think.

Has anyone seen this picture before https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DGzgdpGXoAA6rsS?format=jpg&name=large, I believe Sidney would definitely be the next engine to be made plus they can even adjust the border.

I think there are 2 reasons why they should make Stanley:
1. Like Chaz said, tank engines are easy to make.
2. Since a few years ago hornby has released new products of the town Great Waterton and made shed for Stanley, however they never made him while they were making the new products of buildings.
So I really hope they make him next year too.

I definitely agree with Chaz on Stepney. I feel he would be great as the next engine added to the range. However, another character I would love to see is Stanley.


I feel he would have been a better choice for Bachmann to make last year instead of Rosie. As you said he doesn't have two much nostalgia, but he stands out and is the size Bachmann seems to like. I wouldn't be shocked to see him get announced within the next few years.
