Hello Bachmen together.
Here in far away  Austria I have heared, that the next  Spectrum  Scale G - model will be a Western-Maryland-Shay . I think in America You know more . Is it true ?  When  NO,
what a fine new loco-model will it be ?
Many Thanks and best greetings from Austria

That would be welcome news, but I wouldn't hold my breath. The Western Maryland was standard gauge, so a true WM Shay would have to be all new tooling in a scale (1:29?) that Bachmann has yet to do much in. From what I've heard from Bachmann reps at recent shows, something with new tooling is not in the cards anytime soon.

Having said that, can you imagine the excitement a 1:29 3-truck Western Maryland Shay would bring to the hobby? I'd bet it would have as much impact as the original 1:20 2-truck Shay had when it first came out. The 1:29 market is a lot bigger than the 1:20 market right now, and they're starved for new products.

Later,

Hi Kevin
I also thought it. For such a new construction Bachmann Trains must make all tools new.This is absolutely impossible . So I  hope, that the next scale G model in 1:20,3 would have an excellent example.
But : What example it is ? That is my question !

Gerald;
Your English is fine.
Myself, I would like to see them produce another run of the two- truck shay.  Some think this is the greatest mass produced loco ever.

I would also prefer an other 2 Truck Shay, very very detailled . I believe  here is a great choice  and all Bachmen over the world would be very happy and satisfied . As we have seen, great  Bachmann in Philadelphia is a Specialist in Shay-Manufacturing.
