Hey, the funny thing is, grandpuff and I were talking about some issues with our Peter Sam models not running very wellÖ.Looks like there is no need to worry too much about that one now!

The NMRA is this week, so itís possible we will have an update on the coaches then, if not then maybe at some point late in the summer since that was around when we first saw a picture of Rusty.

If they were to get cancelled like the large scale Diesel did, they would be absent from the catalog and Bachmannís web store.  

Iím willing to bet that the coaches are going to be resembling the Talyllyn coach 4 tooling with the red coach basically being just that and the blue one painted in model era colors.


I looked on the Bachmann trains web site and there was no picture of the coaches[not even the model series or cgi]but a picture of the red Rosie,we can only wait and see.

The bachmamn website won't have a produxt on there until it is released, which the red rosie model is already available since it's just a repaint of the original rosie model.

Bachmann retooled Rosie to have the lamp she has with that new color scheme.

I had the opportunity to go to the NMRA Train Show today, and I saw the Narrow Gauge coaches in the flesh. I can confirm that they will be two separate toolings and they are expected to start shipping around November 2019. I'm also excited about the announcements of Peter Sam and Daisy.

WOW! So not only did Bachmann make an incredible new product announcement yesterday, but they also made the narrow gauge carriages using two separate toolings! This just goes to show that the Bachmann reps take our comments very seriously. The only small complaint I have is that the shade of blue they chose for the blue carriage is a little on the dark side, but other than that I'm very happy!

Nah that shade is perfect, closer to RWS, which is ideal frankly. Any word on when theyíll be out? Hoping given how ready they look itíll be in the next few weeks.

Terence, the darkness is only due to my phone always making pictures slightly dark. The blue is actually quite bright in person, plus there was another shelf above with bigger products on it, which might have blocked some of the light. The blue as far right on the carriage in the first photo is actually closer to what it looks like in person, even with the slight glare.

STL, they said that the carriages are expected to start shipping around November or early December.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked WOW!!! The Narrow Gauge Coaches look AWESOME!!!! It seems the red carriage is colored like the CGI carriages, but is sized like the Model Series. Some paint to make it Model Series color-accurate and itíll be perfect!!! This just goes to show NOT to assume that just because youíre not seeing something automatically means itís cancelled and to check your sources before believing something someone told you.
