it would be nice to see dcc versions of thomas, percy et.al.
while these locomotives are "dcc ready" it is not an easy install. there is very little room in the cab for a do it yourself installation.

 Adding DCC to thomas Engine would better but the Price with DCC NO

Gordon and Henry would be too large for little kids to handle. And they would not make any of Bachmann's 4ft curves because they are so large.

Agreed.  So next in line would probably be Edward or Toby or even Mavis.

Emily, Edward, or Toby. Mavis may pop up in a few years, but I think we will see Emily in a while. The release of her coaches only supports the idea. And as much as I dislike the character, the engine itself is a reason to like her. Forget her personality, her shape, color, size, that is the reason to like Emily. If Bachmann made a normal Large Scale Sterling Single, it may one day pop up on my railroad.

And yet other tender G scale locos can? I saw plenty of them round tight curves at my model club.

Henry and Gordon would be large than Bachmann's 4-6-0 "Annie" engines. James is about the same size of an Annie and my Annies look somewhat akward on the 4ft curves. On my 5ft curves, they look better, but Bachmann does not make 5ft curves. Gordon and Henry would be fairly large. About the size of an AristoCraft Pacific or Mike engines (which require about 8ft curves, twice the size of Bachmann's curves), if Bachmann chooses to make them larger than James that is. If they make Henry and Gordon the same size as James, they would have no problem making the curves. But that would look silly that the biggest engines on Sodor are the size of a mixed traffic engine. Now I like Henry and Gordon a lot more than Emily, but their sizes affect their chance. Now, if Bachmann does make them, they could not run on their curves. They would need another brand's curves, similar to some of Bachmann's Spectrum engines, like the K-27.

The sizes of tender engines from each manufacturer vary. Bachmann makes 1:22 4-6-0s, AristoCraft makes 1:29 engine sizes from small 0-4-0 tank engines to the Pacfic, LGB makes 1:22 both small and large Europian and American engines, USA Trains makes 1:29 large Big Boys to small Dockside switchers, and Lionel made small 0-6-0s to larger 4-4-2 Atlantics (I read somewhere that they are closest to 1:32, but they are really a class of their own).

On the LS engines in the Thomas range, the middle wheel doesn't touch the tracks, then the bogey moves separately. It'd look silly on the sharp radius's, but I doubt that's high on Bachmanns concerns with an engine.
