He hasn't been released yet, hence why I didn't include him in the list. His model could turn out to be an awful one.

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #486 By Titanic5972: Now I understand why you didn't mention him. I mentioned him, because I thought maybe you had forgotten about him, but now the reason is because he has not been released yet! What a fool I am!

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #478 By railtwister: mully did not weather those. Those are factory weathered, that Cattle Wagon and Vent Van. Those three wagons in that line are from a Hornby Thomas & Friends Triple Pack.

Oh, I see, Hornby trains are rather hard to find in the USA, thanks for the "heads up". However, it's even more interesting to hear of factory weathered items existing in Hornby's Thomas product line. Question: are the Hornby couplers compatible with the ones Bachmann uses for its Thomas line?

Railtwister: Yes, the couplers are compatible. I have a few Hornby items myself, and they do connect with Bachmann's hook-and-loop couplers.

^^ Above 2 Replies - @Reply #490 By railtwister: In Hornby's Thomas & Friends range, the products that they weathered, where:

R9202 Brake Van - Grey
R9203 Cattle Wagon
R9216 Large Breakdown Crane
R9233 Oil Tanker
R9237 Cream Utility Wagon
R9238 Light Grey Vent Van
R9260 Thomas & The Great Discovery Train Set (Thomas the Tank Engine, Annie, Clarabel, Red Open Wagon and Light Blue Open Wagon Only)
R9299 Tanker Triple Pack (Oil Tanker Only) (2015 Version)
R9704 Tanker Triple Pack (Oil Tanker Only) (2012 Version)

In answer to your question, the Bachmann HO and Hornby Thomas & Friends ranges are compatible. The couplings do couple-up together.

how about we calm down for a second and realise that he's practically available in other hobby shops for cheaper. you don't necessarily need to order from bachmann directly. Hobby Linc has him for, I believe, $103 and Tower Hobbies has him in stock as well, not sure what price though.

If I may say, the new releases by bachmann this year are incredible. Kudos to the team who made it possible!

My only inquiry is if there's a possibility of seeing some semaphore signals added to the accessories section in the future? I don't really have any other questions but just something I was curious about.  Feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks!

With the announcements posted and, again, my apologies on the topic of "congrats on new releases," but I was inquiring about adding semaphore signals to the list of accessories for potential future products. With the round water tower out, it's clear that a sturdy base can be made so it can stand on it's own.

That's why I made that post a while back. Not to hype up any fans, just asking about the potential of sodor signals.

-Good day.

This is actually the first time I've heard of Bachmann getting sold out of a product so quickly. Does anyone know if this has happened before? I can imagine it'll be some time before they get more in stock.

I think we can all understand why Slarloey has sold out though, because he is the first Locomotive in a new Gauge in the Thomas & Friends range. This is the first time that Thomas & Friends Narrow Gauge range has appeared in model railway's.
