The DCC/Sound version of the Light Mountain has been out for some time now.  When can we expect parts to be available?   Please don't say "soon" or some such vagary.

Thanks

Same question for the "after 2017 version" of the 2-8-0.  That has been out much longer and is still not getting any parts listing in the current Bachmann parts catalog.

I am asking if Bachmann intends to ever offer parts for their new releases. 

A lot of Bachmann's parts are bought by people who want to use them for making other models, rather than just replacing broken parts on Bachmann models.  It seems like that is a good way for Bachmann to support and grow the hobby, but I am not sure they see it that way.

So, how about some actual communication from Bachmann. please.

Dear All,
Whenever we receive a new loco, we get a certain percentage unassembled for parts.
When those parts are exhausted, we can't get more until the next run.
Thanks!

Bach-man, your posted "reply" was not actually a reply to the question we asked.  Please read the questions again. 

The issue is whether the extra parts that you get when you run a new locomotive will be made available to us customers through the Bachmann Parts Store, and, if so, when for the new 4-8-2 and the "After 2017 version" of the 2-8-0, both of which now include sound.

As soon as the locos come in the parts should be available through the parts department.

Bach-man,

When you say that the parts become available through the "parts department" as soon as the models they are on become available, are you saying here: https://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=70&zenid=mflits0km59vlmv0acd5i5r693 ? The last loco to list parts there is the K-4 Pennsy 4-6-2.  Which came out after the sound version of the 2-8-0.  And, the latest sound version of the 4-8-2 has been available for a while, but there are no parts listed for it on that website.  So, it seems that what you posted is incorrect for 2 of the last 3 steam locomotives.  That is why we are asking the question about parts availability for those 2 locomotives.

So, if you are able, please check with whatever powers at Bachmann corporation really know if/when the parts will be available for the new sound versions of the 4-8-2 and the 2-8-0.
