Dear All,

It looks very nicely proportioned to my eye. 

Has anyone with knowledge of the prototype put a ruler to it to determine the scale?

Then again, has anyone ever put a ruler to the model used for T.V. and film?

W. A. Guessing: 1/32 of the length, 1/29 of the wheel diameter, 1/29 of the boiler diameter, and 1/29 of the body width, body height and overall height.

It is, by definition, 1/32 of the wheel/rail gauge, since the prototype is 4' 8-1/2" and the model runs on LS (45mm gauge) track.

I suppose we could worry about the scale and proportions of rolling stock it pulls, too.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

Joe,

I'd bet it will be "compatible with large scale"...which will work just fine here in SC!  Grin

hey I got it...I wonder if we could get a shot of it with a Big Hauler Box Car or Ten-Wheeler?  That'd define it!

Supply your own controls - Thomas will be analog straight out of the box.

The size of Thomas looks good next to the Big Hauler.  It should make a great addition to any locomotive fleet and make a lot of kids, of all ages, happy. Grin

Does the light go on if you turn the power on?

Thanks Jack ("analog")...and Thanks Bachmann for keeping it simple!

James, I agree, it does favor the latest incarnation of the Cheeky little engine!

That Thomas is waaaaaaay too big  to be of much use to me  Sad
I will have to get one anyway, but I had hoped for a smaller block than the Annie for bashes.
We'll see how Percy turns out.

Also, will the spoked wheels be available as a seperate item?

I found out that Thomas is based on a real locomotive that was in Britain. It was an E2 Extended Tank 0-6-0T, which none of them survive. I like the Large Scale Thomas, but I don't want one.

Thomas looks accurate! They captured the size of a British train perfectly. Keep in mind that British trains are standard gauge but are smaller and shorter than American trains. Great Job Bachmann!
