Oh, and on a completely different note, Flying Scotsman will appear in The Great Race, which was confirmed due to the upcoming TrackMaster model of him. I wonder if he will have one tender or two tenders?

Everything I have read about the special does not make any mention of Scotsman. Just because he has a new Trackmaster model being released doesn't necessarily mean he is to be included in the special, as much as I would love him to be!

I do hope that Flying Scotsman will be in this years Thomas & Friends Feature Length Special, but if there is nothing on the Internet saying this, then where did TrainMan2001 get this information from?

Which Wagon's are those? Surely you can push the frames together so they hold the wheels properly?

A salesman from the other forum I am part of got an e-mail from Mattel that said they would make Flying Scotsman this year, and since he never completely appeared in the show yet, and that The Great Race has engines of different nationalities for the race, it would be safe to assume that Flying Scotsman will appear in it.

Bachmann trains are awesome. I hope they come out with Stepney one day.

That is information I believe. I would be surprised if somebody on this Forum replies below not believing what you have written there, TrainMan2001.

The Great Race is obviously to do with some sort of race, and I am pretty sure the Engines taking part in it will be Gordon, Spencer, Caitlin and Connor. If Mattel have confirmed that they are releasing a Flying Scotsman die-cast toy later in the year, then there must be a reference somewhere why they would produce this product. With the Feature Length Special called 'The Great Race', it is of course the perfect time for the Flying Scotsman to appear in the TV Series, so for Mattel to produce this Flying Scotsman die-cast toy, he must be making an appearance and as we all know, the Flying Scotsman is a record-breaking fast steam locomotive, so The Great Race would be a perfect appearance for the Flying Scotsman to appear in.

Maybe clamping them together might work over night. I can't see why it wouldn't work. If it does not work, I think you should try that and if it does not then send the Train Set back where you bought it from and buy another somewhere else or you could even contact Bachmann themselves about it, with the batch number. You mihgjt have a bought your Train Set that came form a dodgy batch.

With out accessing what is wrong though in real life, it is not easy to picture the problem. I am only suggesting Steve (UPTODAY), my personal opinion of what I think from the information you have given.

Steve - seeing as how your purchase was recent Bachmann can send you a free replacement for your rolling stock.  If not, the Great Train Expo is this weekend in Portland and I have seen some stands sell some Bachmann products including ones that are discontinued.  If you are planning to come this weekend I would advise you to check things out over there.

I'm still not convinced that Flying Scotsman will make an appearance. Both Ertl and Hornby released full models of Scotsman after his tenders appeared in the TV show, as did the original Wooden Railway. Never assume anything.

Yes, ERTL and Hornby have both released 'Thomas' Flying Scotsman's, and I have the Hornby 'Thomas' Flying Scotsman.

I knew that it is not best to assume that the Flying Scltsman will be in The Great Race, but I hope he is, as this new Feature Length Special is the perfect opportunity for HiT Entertainment to put him in the TV series.
