And while you may not care about popularity, a business has to.

No John, I am not saying that the first three Locomotives released in 2002 should have been Thomas, Edward and Henry. Bachmann releasing Thomas, Percy and James where perfect choices. I am only saying that with the Narrow Gauge Locomotives. They should be released in a numerical order, because we all know that the Narrow Gauge Engines are small, so too me, in my mind, they should be released in numerical order, as they are all relatively the same size, so I just see it silly of Bachmann releasing them in a non numerical order. To me, as I have said, the Engines are roughly the same size, so they should cost about the same to produce, so where is the logic in releasing them not in a numerical order? Bachmann would then just be picking them randomly and that is silly. A numerical order is much better.
It is the same concept though. Release the most popular, then build on the brand. Skarloey was without a doubt the most popular, I mean they refer to it as the Skarloey Railway. Now to continuing to build the brand the most realistic engines to release next are Rheneas, Peter Sam, or Rusty. They are the next most popular of the engines in that scale. It wouldn't be randomly picking, it would be a smart marketing decision.

Well I haven't been on since October, so boy have I missed a lot. Let me just say Happy Holidays everyone! Now Jacob, I want to bring up a point. Releasing them in numerical order isn't good business, in some cases, yeah, but here's an example, the first Bachmann engines released in HO and Large scale were Thomas, Percy, and James. Are you saying the first three released should have been Thomas, Edward, and Henry? You have to release the popular items that will sell well first, then build on the brand. With that being said I think the next Narrow gauge will either be Rheneas or Peter Sam. Like it was mentioned before Sir Handel hasn't been a regular in a long time. With all this being said my predictions for 2016.
HO:
Oliver and Road (this isn't really a prediction, but point being they are gonna be released). I doubt any other engines will be released, I'd also love a Stepney, but he also hasn't been used in quite some time (which I would love to see him back one day). Maybe a new piece of rolling stock, but that's a bout it.
L:
Winston (again obviously)
NgHO:
Rheneas or Peter Sam
Coaches (Red or White&Blue)

These are just predictions, but I think they are realistic.

I could see Oliver and Toad.
POSSIBLY Stepney.
Even though I would love to see BoCo and Daisy.
I think after Oliver and Toad (if made) Bachmann will skip to
Like Rosie, Whiff, Arry and Bert, etc.
(Were Arry and Bert Railway Series?)
No right?

For 2013...
HO
(Engines)
Oliver- Personal favorite of mine, it would finish the #1-11 engines. Popular character.
Rosie- Popular character, with a decent amount of screen time, would make another girl character (even though I'd rather see a Daisy)
'Arry and Bert- Can easily be made, would make more diesels I mean since there is only 3, decently popular
Stepney, BoCo, or Daisy- If classics, why not one of them?
(Rolling Stock)
Red Coaches- I have no clue how long we've been asking but can EASILY be made.
Toad- Only if Oliver cuz one without the other seems wrong
Chinese Dragon- It would be REALLY awesome
LS
(Engines)
Diesel
Toby
Rosie

HIGHLY doubtful but if Duck I would totally start buying LS
(Rolling Stock)
Henrietta
Van
Red Coach?

(yes...no reasoning for LS)
