Quote from: Chaz on January 21, 2018, 04:19:32 PMI thought about it, and the last time we had a plastic operational building in the range was the windmill, which was announced in 2011. I feel like at this point if they do the watermill they would have the building be resin to go along with the recent resin building additions. Plus the way how it's designed and made out of stone it gives off more of a resin building vibe to me rather than all plastic. If they were to make it operational like the windmill and lighthouse, then they would have to go with plastic since if they go with a motor and a resin casting it would be way too expensive. Admittedly I don't see them making a bridge for that particular building since a general consumer would have to find a way to elevate the rail line above the standing height of the waterwheel and mill themselves. It would essentially be two pieces combined into one and a lot of consumers aren't going to want to pay that extra price, especially since most of the people buying Bachmann's Thomas-range buildings for their kids are only doing so for tracks that are level, not elevated.Plus this is also the range that made a Brendam warehouse but not the Sodor Shipping Company building, so if they were to do other buildings besides the Watermill they would probably look into other options like what we've mentioned in the past for some variety that fans can choose from.
