Usually Bachmann release loco's during October/November but sometimes it can be during the same year the character was announced or the year after, Bill Ben and Diesel we're released the same year they were announced but Donald and Douglas came out a year and a half after the announcement. So yeah Bachmann is not always consistent with release dates..

You hit the nail with the hammer on that one, there are always a couple of bumps along the way in production but at least the models are out eventually.  They seem to be consistent at being... Inconsistent.  It happens more often than not, just like how Oliver got announced last year and will most likely be out later this year.  

At least the Skarloey stuff has been doing well so far, and I imagine they will probably do well in that regard for a few years similarly to how large scale was doing better in production at first but then started to slow down right around the last 2-3 years.  Rheneas has been up for preorder on a few shops already so no complaints on my end.

Anyone know what type of engine Gordon is? Some sources say that he is an A3, but others say he is an A1.

Well in a sense he's both. He was a prototype which lead to both so he's tipically called an A0. However in a recent video on the official T&F YouTube channel for "shooting star Gordon" it says he's an A3.

With all these people building their own replica Thomas characters, soon we may have no choice but to have 4K Thomas and Friends remakes.

Has anyone noticed that in Season 1 of the series, Thomas has rivets along his running board and at least the back of his bunker? You can see them better in the close-up shots of the model. I think it is pretty cool. I wonder why all the models after that are missing them? Anyone have ideas?

The answer is most likely to save money. Painting over riveted areas tends to be harder than on flat surfaces, but more likely it was just easier to make the bodies without them all.

I am just wondering about this, maybe mines just broken or I'm just not doing something right but the "steam exhaust" sound on the wistle and chuff Thomas that is advertised and even on the plastic container doesn't work. Even the official Bachmann demo has it but I can't figure out how to get it to activate. Can someone help me with this?

You have to stop Thomas really slowly to get it to work.

Hah, with all the hype with Oliver and Rheneas I completely forgot about this one. Tongue Just like the last water tower they really hit the nail with the hammer with this one.  Tower Hobbies even says that is shipping sometime this month, so I'm glad to see that release date was at least consistent.

Ditto to that, it's nice to see the released picture, I look forward to the final designs of the other products that were announced/due out this year. Smiley
