youd be surprised at who kids recognise.
the model train club im a member of had a visit from a special needs preschool a month or so back. i took my tomy/trackmaster stuff along. about a week before the show, i got on a parenting forum and asked members which female train their kids would rather see/who they would recognise. the calls for lady and emily were about the same, with 1 or 2 for flora and i dont think molly or rosie got suggested at all. in the end i took emily cos i like her design, but lady would have been just as popular. 

on the flip side, the club president runs bachmann thomas and i watched some of the kids at the train show and so many called edward and gordon, thomas.

I don't really understand why people are still debating over this. It comes down to this:

Lady may be popular among fans, but she doesn't make frequent appearances. She's had 8 total minutes of screen time.

Rosie is popular among fans and makes frequent appearances within the show. She's had MUCH more screen time that Lady has, and Rosie is a member of the actual series. She's not only in the movies and spin-offs, she's actually in episodes.

Facts need to just be faced here. Lady will most likely NOT be appearing in the Bachmann range. If she ends up making some appearances in the show, which is highly unlikely, then maybe. But right now, I doubt it. Rosie obviously has a much better chance.

Out of Female Characters Rosie is the #3 out of my top five.
1. Daisy
2. Mavis
3. Rosie
4. Lady Hatt (I think she controlos Mr. TH and that says alot)
5. Lady
I think Rosie should definitely be the next female engine made. If not the next female then just the plain out next AS LONG AS DUCK COMES OUT WITH HER!!! But for previous reasons said she's popular a U.S.A. engine, and quite well known. Heck, I'd rather have her on the steam before Emily. (But both should be replaced by The Great Westerns). Sry for being off topic but yes I say Rosie!

that would be nice: Bachmann 2012 - Duck and Rosie.  Shocked Bachmann would make SO MUCH profit off of them since they are so popular between fans.

daisy would be an easy make. box + 1 powered bogie + 1 unpowered bogie = Daisy. same goes for BoCo.

That would be true, and also, if Daisy were made into a Bachmann model, I wonder which chassis would be used. After all, she has on occasion been seen with the chassis as BoCo.

I say Lady, because she is a major character in Thomas and the Magic Railroad

ah yes but has she been in the series much? no. lady has been in 1 movie and 1 hour special with 4 lines all together. she would be a nice model but for now a heavily altered model of percy, bill/ben, and and ERTL or Bandai Lady.

I can categorically state Lady will not be appearing in the Bachmann range - ever.

To argue for her is to ignore one simple factor in all of this - Bachmann are a business, and they want models which will sell. That is why they made the first seven characters pretty quickly, that is why they have made Diesel, Donald & Douglas, and Bill & Ben. The demand is there for them. I sincerely doubt, if made, that Lady would be anywhere near profitable for them.

At the end of the day, it's about sales, and Lady as a character has neither appeared enough, nor is wanted by anything near enough people to justify a single run of models, never mind the continuous 9 year stint the Bachmann Thomas has had.

Profitability will always win the day over a perceived desirability.

Reasoned debate is not exactly "war".

I might suggest that those who dislike the answer might be slightly biased in favour of said 0-4-0!

yes pretty much those who don't like the fact that rosie's more likley are of course the ones in favour of 'said 040'. And now I have been told how to make an HO Lady, so I can make my own Lady and to be honest because of the fact I can MAKE her I would rather see Rosie as I don't know how to make her and I need her for the prolouge and Lady doesn't debut 'till episode 8.
