Dear Mr. Bach-man,

When do you think you are going to start to make the Narrow Gauge engines of Sodor. I'm really looking forward to you makeing them. Can you start makeing them in 2009 after the year with Edward & Mavis.

Never going to happen. There's around a 1% chance of them thinking about making narrowgauge engines, and a .1% chance of them thinking about making HOn2. So no. Not going to happen.

Jock is my favorite engine now, and in my Thomas world, he works on the Skarloey Railway with Frank, Skarloey, Rheneas, etc. since he & Frank are the only Small Railway engines ever made in Ertl diecast.

Fine, It won't ever happen unless they decide to make ON2 and have enough demand for Thomas, years after you all are eternally lifelless in a box in the ground.

Well, I don't think they would because everyone would have to buy new track and everything.  It sounds like a great idea though.  Smiley

I'm not mean. We've been over this before. It won't happen. Stop Asking. If it did happen at all it could not be as earlly as 2009.

Why don't you mini foamers just go by a 009 kit and kitbash it so you can graduate to "Foamer in Training state."

You can't be mad at him for speaking the truth. If you're really that demanding for Narrow Gauge engines, just to what topkazfatt from YouTube did and make 'em yourself.

HOn3, HOn2, would most likely be built to be run on 1:160 scale track, which is around 30"'s halfway between HOn2, and HOn3. Right now there is not a large market with Bachmann already producing On30, and 1:20.3, which takes cars of narrow gauge enthusiasts. Theres a company that the Ffestiniog sells kits for in 009 scale which you should look into. I think many of the Thomas narrow gauge engines were based off actual locomotives but I don't watch Thomas so I wouldn't know.

I don't know if a Thomas character looks similar to that.

Listen GG i really don't want to argue about it.  Sad  I just want to here from the Bach-man before anyone just gets all up and saying no to me and a good idea. Because i just want to be friends with everybody. U mite hate me for all my bickering back and forth about this tipic. Now I just have a qusetion and a coment for u. One is: If u don't watch thomas & Friends why are u in the Thomas chat room? Two is: I think I will look in to doing what Topkazfatt did. thanks for the links. Grin Wink
