So I decided to get Mavis as my last engine at the moment and she runs well. However, I noticed that the pupils on the release I got her from are a bit smaller.

Here's the one I had for a while before I sold her.


And here's the Mavis I got yesterday.


I got her in the 2011 packaging, and SamsTrains on YouTube had the same Mavis with the smaller pupils. Then I saw they released her with the 2020 redesign packaging on ebay and saw that Bachmann changed the size of the pupils back to how they were before. I wonder why Bachmann changed her pupils between 2011 and 2020?



And no, I'm not upset about it (though I did wish I had her with the regular pupils), just wanna know why this happen.

Either a factory error or just a small update they felt like changing to the model over time.

Either way nice to see Mavis in the new packaging.  I can edit her off my list from my earlier post!

Most likely a factory error, I have the Diesel with the buffers painted wrong.
