Close up of Skarloey

It looks amazing!!!

I agree. Skarloey does look amazing. I can't wait to get him! Is that the final product of how he will look then?


UPDATE: Are there any more picture avilaible of Skarloey?

I love seeing a nice closer look of the Bachmann Skarloey, and it's great having a better look at the detail such as the rivets on the bufferbeam and his nameplate.

Looking forward to having him as my first narrow gauge engine next month!

I like the hand railing near his funnel, but I see they've gone the CGI route on the model, the funnel for example lacks the small gold plate from earlier seasons, and just bulges out slightly where the plate would be, as in the CGI series, and also has a partial black part (don't know what to call it), connecting from the saddle tank to the chassis, something that does not appear on the classic model. The rivets, as pointed out before, are modelled after Tallylyn as opposed to Skarloey, so the model appears to be a cross between the CGI model and real life engine. Not that I'm complaining, I just thought it was worth noting...Smiley

I agree, the detailing is nice, but what sort of coupling is that? I haven't come accross anything like that before.

I don't know what the coupler is called but Peco makes OO-9 scale rolling stock that has the same couplers and the same freight cars as the Thomas ones and some other cars.

It looks similar to the hook and loop couplers in HO

Maybe it is the same kind of thing, easy-to-use, but for Narrow Gauge.

It is the 009 / HOe equivalent, yeah. The Hook/loop on HO models would be too small and fiddly on a model this size.

Skarloey looks amazing; is it me, or is the colour very close to his S4 model colour? Could just be the screen settings on my PC...
Really really cannot wait to get my hands on him. I do hope he is out before Christmas...

Maybe the Hook-and-Loop Coupling system would be too big to put on a Narrow Gauge Engine and it would look daft as I won't be too scale.

I don't think Bachmann give release dates. The products are released when they arrive at the Bachmann warehouse from the factory.
