I just bought a 2-4-2T on eBay and was wondering if you know your model number?  Asked Bachmann about it and they donít recognize the part number 81599.

Here's what BoCo would have looked like in the CGI series:

Though, if Bachmann does make BoCo, he would have to be made in his model series design. Had BoCo returned, we could've gotten a nice render like that, plus more episodes on Edward's branch line with Bill and Ben. Talk about wasted potential. It screams wasted potential.

Also if Bachmann makes BoCo, it would complete Edward's branch line engines in HO Scale (Edward, Bill, Ben, and BoCo). The demand for BoCo is clearly there and is very much up there with Stepney. The only issue is getting Mattel's approval for Bachmann to make BoCo, despite never actually appearing in the CGI series. Unlike Daisy, BoCo would actually be made for pulling heavy goods trains.

I think they should just do both.

Maybe. Though we have to take into account how much it costs to produce the toolings required.

Personally speaking, I'd love to see any classic characters made in the range and BoCo is no exception. The character is extremely popular among the fandom and the demand for a model of him is certainly there. Not to mention that by Boco being produced, you'd finally have all the engines that work on Edward's Branch Line (Edward, Boco, Bill & Ben). I'd buy BoCo in a heartbeat.

Now regarding Diesel 10. If I'm to be completely honest with you all, I'd like him to be made just as much as BoCo. Despite the undeniable fact that Thomas and the Magic Railroad is a massive flop with an extremely confusing and messy story, the film still has a special place in my heart. I adore the model work in the film, the characterisation of the engines, the soundtrack and the characters introduced the film (at least when it comes to the engines). I found Diesel 10 in particular to be throughly entertaining throughout and I'd honestly love to own a model of him. Of course, there would issues that would need addressing such as the claw, but I do believe there are ways to work around said issues.

In conclusion, I'd honestly be super happy should Boco or Diesel 10 end up being announced in the future. I like both characters equally (albeit for different reasons) and I'd no doubt buy a model of either engine in a heartbeat, regardless of price.

Hey guys I noticed a thread on here referring to Bachmann making Diesel 10. Well a request and if it is possible I was thinking. If I remade the entire Directors cut of the Thomas and the Magic Railroad movie with model sets and all how cool would it be if I made Diesel and Paxton Diesel 10ís sidekicks? Seeing as how I donít see Bachmann making Splatter and Dodge. The plot would be that Diesel stays loyal to his boss Diesel 10 but at first Paxton is skeptical right from the start. Then as the story goes on, Paxton redeems himself by abandoning Diesel 10. Diesel would be defeated in the smelters yard by James while Diesel 10 would be defeated by falling off the viaduct. What do you guys think? Is it a good idea for a Bachmann only Thomas production? Let me know if you think I should follow through with this if Bachmann ever 0lans to make Diesel 10.

You could try one of these. Not the official Bachmann video.

This is the video series narrated by Michael Gross. I think this might be what the DVD has on it.

I would think so, but you will probably have to use autochuff... or wire the electronic sensors to the Revo board.
