Quote from: TrainFan97 on January 08, 2019, 02:41:06 PMIf we have to get another engine recolor in HO Scale for budget reasons, then instead of Sidney, Bachmann could announce Red Rosie, Green Thomas (LBSC), or Black James, as those recolors would probably sell well.For new toolings in HO Scale, Stepney and Daisy are definitely the most popular requests. Stepney is a small tank engine with a unique livery, and Daisy would be the first bogied diesel in the range. They're both classic characters, and Bachmann knows nostalgia sells. Popular demand gave us Oliver. Let's hope the 2019 announcements deliver, one month from now.The most requested HO rolling stock is definitely a Troublesome Tanker (Troublesome Truck #6), and we desperately need one. Even though troublesome tankers are in the CGI series, they would sell even better if they're based on the classic series design from Toad Stands By, since all of Bachmann's previous Troublesome Trucks are based on the classic series. Bachmann has a pattern of announcing a Troublesome Truck every three years, and Troublesome Truck #5 was announced in 2016, so it's been three years. This should be the year of Troublesome Truck #6. I wouldn't mind it being a Ventilated Van either. We really don't need another open wagon, unless it's a Season 1 Troublesome Truck.Speaking of Ventilated Van, it would be nice to get the Explosives Van in HO Scale.Regarding Narrow Gauge, Peter Sam or Sir Handel definitely must get announced this year. Rusty ended up being based on his CGI render, but his render is nowhere near as bad as Duncan's. There's also a possibility of Peter Sam or Sir Handel being based on their CGI renders, but their renders are actually great.

Quote from: Rodimus Supreme on January 09, 2019, 11:11:12 PMI would think so too about the tooling, if it wasn't already totally possible for Bachmann to recolor the tooling into the Hopper Wagons.
