Does anyone know the price range for the Narrow Gauge coaches yet?

I would like to get 6 of them (for pre-order) but I'm worried that I wouldn't save enough. I estimated about $70 to 80 dollars since the NG box vans were that price.

I know it's a ballpark guess.

I think it would be $50 each max.

Is the original Diesel being discontinued in favour the grumpy version?

Diesel (Item No. 58802) remains in our HO line: https://shop.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=756_772_774&products_id=1755&zenid=n49cjfukurdq39hob1ubq4vjn3

Then why was the grumpy version of Diesel made when the original one is still selling?

Grumpy Diesel was made because some fans have complained about Diesel's original face, calling it too innocent or cheery, and it was of course inexpensive to make.

However, considering that there have been two consecutive years of announcements with no new HO loco tooling, let's hope that Stepney or Daisy are in the books for 2019, both of which would cost much less to make than the majority of newer characters and be extremely hot sellers, as polls have proven  Smiley.

Then just updating the existing Diesel's face would've made more sense if they are just updating something that fans wanted changed, instead of keeping the original one and this one. Unless Bachmann plans on having multiple versions of each engine, each with different faces, then this is an odd choice.

If Grumpy Diesel replaces Diesel, it'll be something we'll only find out once Bachmann runs out of supply of their current Diesel run, and then wait and see if regular Diesel gets restocked or not.

Diesel is the last locomotive to buy. I'm having a difficult decision what version to buy.
Which one is better? I want to buy both buy I just need one. Getting two doesn't make sense.

It really just comes down to the matter of if you want one with a happy face or a grumpy face.

Personally, I would go with the Grumpy Diesel because it suits his character more than a happy face, since it does suit his character more. You also wouldn’t run into the chance of buying a normal Diesel with that odd buffer factory error that the more recently produced normal Diesel models had.

I went to a local model shop that sells Bachmann Thomas. The Diesel models there had that buffer factory error. Weird. Huh?
