Is this a different manufacture called Atlas you are talking about, because in the UK, there is a diecast model manufacture called Atlas Editions, who have different model collections going where they sell there models on a continuous monthly loop lasting around 3 years each?

I signed up to receive the Eddie Stobart collection back in 2012, of the famous Carlisle based trucks in the UK, with girl's names on the front. I am also a huge fan and 'Spotter' of this as well!

Atlas is another manufacture that makes HO, O, and N scale models that usually sell in shops to the US. 

I also don't see the point of mentioning the Eddie Stobart things either since that has nothing to do with Thomas or model railroading.  Remember to please stay on topic.

I will have to look into this Atlas. I am not sure if I have heard of it.

I know talking about Eddie Stobart was off topic, but I was trying to explain my point of mentioning Atlas Editions.

Can't help but notice 2 topics from a fellow member that have been deleted. Was there a reason for this?

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #430 By Rickenbacker 325: That is a good point. One of them was the Large Scale Thomas thread. I cannot understand why that was deleted?

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #432 By UPTODAY: "Bust my buffers" Steve, you do make me laugh! That was funny. I do agree though and it a good point because you buy Bachmann Gordon, but there is nothing for him to pull, as they have discontinued his Coaches. As we all know, Gordon only pulls Coaches, trucks if his made to, by Sir Topham Hatt!

I guess the advantage of living in the UK, if you have Bachmann Gordon, you could buy the Hornby Gordon's Coaches.

Hey, on my railroad, Gordon pulls red coaches or Emily's coaches.  It's inaccurate, but I like branch line coaches more than mainline ones, so it works for me Wink

I don't see Gordon being discontinued… ever.  A lot of the time he's a better seller than Thomas himself!  The ONLY character that has ever outsold Thomas!  It's good because Gordon is my favorite model (Bill/Ben and Donald/Douglas coming close second and third).  Frankly, I can see the express coaches returning to circulation before Gordon is removed Smiley

^^ Above 2 Replies - @Reply #436 By SportyPup and ^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #437 By UPTODAY: This is a new one SportyPup. I have never heard of Gordon pulling Branchline Coaches before! I do not recommend you put Branchline Coaches behind Gordon Steve (UPTODAY). They are in-accurate and Gordon will look daft pulling them.

Why can't he just run whatever coaches he wants? It's his layout and his trains, I don't see what gives you the divine right to dictate to others what they can and can't run on their own personal layout.

The most important rule in model-railroading, your railroad your rules.  If he wants to run Gordon with those coaches that's his personal decision, not yours.  I think there are alternatives out there that would work fine if people want coaches that would be suitable for Gordon because the Bachmann express coaches were discontinued for being so expensive.  Seeing as how Spencer's coach may get discontinued this year based on not being on the Bachmann web store, this proves my point even further.

I also don't see why Bachmann would discontinue Gordon either just because his coaches got discontinued.  Especially when he is literally their current best seller.
