What is the timeline for more short cars, flats, gondolas, box cars?  Also, will it be a token run, or will  they produce a decent quantity?
Would like to get some more.

Dear Bob,
They will be regular production items. We hope to have more around April.
Merry Christmas!

Do you have any idea when the 18 ft. Box Car with Murphy Roof is planned to be released? I think they were meant to be here this time of year, but I haven't seen any yet.

I'm really glad Bachmann made these. They have a great amount of detail which matches the loco range nicely. I also have quite a small layout, so they are really useful.

I hope Bachmann consider making a caboose that is the same style as the 18ft. cars. With similar features as the Side Door Caboose, which is another great item.
I would also be interested in an 18ft Pulpwood Car, which would be quite easy for Bachmann to make.

Bachmann if yo took the current caboose and changed the cupola by making it taller and put a four wheel bogie under it then many generations of modelers would be happy!

I would be happier if they made some longer cars.Splicing and dicing to get them is fun but gets rather expencive after awhile.

Catt,why not do this with the 26 foot box cars?,they are cheap and Grandt line parts are not that expensive.
I have even removed that cast on ladder and added grab iron to add variety to my rolling stock.
The bachmann stuff is great and never have we had it so good in O narrow gauge!

Royce,I fully intend to do just that. Grin Bachmann cars were meant to be bashed into something else if so desired (which I do).

No reason you can't make up new bodies with Evergreen car siding.  It's not hard.   Just copy the Bachmann cars and make them longer -

There are RTR and kit longer cars available from San Juan as well as a number of 40' kits from Wiseman Model services for less than trashing two Bachmann cars.


BTW-Keep making the short cars. There is clearly more demand for them than the 28"ers BUT double up or triple up the 18" flat cars because they are in demand to build unusual box cars, cabooses and work train equipment

how do figure that? I know everyone likes new stuff, but I don't know how one can say there "clearly more demand" for the unusually sized cars over more typically sized cars?

Any word on shipment of the 18 footers? I've had some on on back order from MicroMark since November.
