It's fine UPTODAY. Yes, the grey paint is to represent ballast. I am sure you will come up with some new jokes because to the Bachmann Trains Forum, you officially know as The Joker or The Riddler! I have already had a series of Lavender / Purple Brake Van and Hornby Mountain jokes given too me, so lord knows what jokes you will have next!

I have never came across any HO Gauge or OO Gauge ships before. What sort of ship are you looking for? Are you after some sort of plastic kit or diecast model?

Unfortunately HO/OO cargo ships are not a very common sight, they are usually more common in scales closer to N scale, mainly for the fact that otherwise, the ships would be so very large. I mean when one thinks about how big these kinds of ships are in real life, any HO/OO ship would be so large that they would easily dwarf any HO/OO engine model.

As for your more recent question, I don't recall seeing that cargo ship at Brendam Docks, however I could very easily be wrong. Also, even though I currently can't afford this model, and don't even have stay out to place it on, would you mind sending me the link in a personal message, UPTODAY? If it's not too much trouble that is.

Ah, yes JJ96 you do have a point, I probably should've asked that in the 2016 predictions thread...oh well, no harm done, right? Anyway just one last point before I move this discussion to the 2016 thread, is that (to me at least), whilst I think from memory they haven't appeared since Season 10, the Blue and White Coaches (along with their matching Blue Brakevan), provide superb colour contrast to Skarloey and Rheneas especially (and most people seem to think that we'll get Rheneas as our next new Narrow Gauge engine). Also these coaches have the added benefit of looking closer to the coaches used in the Railway Series, than any other Narrow Gauge TV series rolling stock. However outside of colour contrast, unless they miraculously re-appear in CGI, I think their appeal to younger fans will be slightly more limited.

On another point, I originally only intended for users to share their thoughts on their favourite Narrow Gauge Coaches, not to start predicting next year's range...whoops, but oh well. Perhaps I should've seen that coming, I'll shift this question to the 2016 predictions thread in the meantime.

No no no, I was saying I should've put my little can't in the 2016 thread, what you put in this thread was fine! Sorry about that.
On a side note I watched Blue Mtn Mystery two days ago and I didn't think it was that bad, could it have been better? Yeah, but not bad.

To those of you who would be interested, the round water tower has made it on eBay and I might look into getting one at some point.  I'm surprised Bachmann put this in the blister packaging.  

 

The green mail car and the celebration Thomas are also listed with pictures of their packaging shown too.

Is it quite a cheap shop, or expensive? Maybe The Whistle Stop is the best hobby shop in the USA, but the best in the UK is Hatton's in Liverpool!
