Don't know if there will be any others, this is all that's posted so far. Much more exciting to me is a new 4-4-0 and a 3 truck Climax in HO!


Here's a link if you want to see announcements in other scales.

I wonder if these are the old Porter models updated or completely new models? As getting sound into the old models would be impressive!

I kinda hope these are updates of the old model as this would still give the chance of yet another loco! However this does mean I might as well give Bachmann my wallet!!!

I doubt that the list published in Model Railroader is the full story, this has happened before, a list appears before the official announcements, people complain about what is not in it only to discover when the official announcement comes that there are more items, possibly including what they want.

Good to see the Porters back so soon, I was expecting them to be  re-issued a bit further  down the track.

Dear All,
Well, someday I'll get to do the announcements first...
It's not news that the changes in production since the SDK purchase have resulted in schedule changes.  They've pushed a couple of projects near and dear to our On30 hearts past this year's cutoff, so we will announce them when they're ready. However, the new technology in the Porters will allow subsequent locos to be even better, and I'm very glad to see the Porters back with DCC and sound.
So, don't despair! Remember that Mr. Riley and I want want you want...
Have fun!

The Porters are completely new design.   New castings, new drive, etc.
Also listed was a new HO turntable that is suitable for On30

At first glance, the On30 announcements seem a bit light; but we have had a pretty good year with On30-
with the 2-6-6-2 and 4-6-0. 

Also, seems there may be more in store for us before Christmas.

Sure would be nice to see some of the other big manufacturers jump into the On30 rtr market.

Thanks, Bachmann.

Glad to see all new Porters myself. Sure, I'd love to see new locomotives, but even for someone who likes bigger locomotives, you gotta love the Porters. I'll be getting a couple with sound.
