Wasn't aware of her iisted weight/other info. That's very comforting. I guess I'm still scarred by LS Diesel...

Cancelling Daisy would just be Bachmann saying no to such great potential sales.

After thinking about how the eye mechanism could work, it's not that hard. The front motor inside the mold can lay on its side, connected to a gear that connects to the eye mechanism, and that gear can be on a rod that has another gear at the other end of the rod that connects to the bogie wheels. That's how the eye mechanism can work, despite Daisy not having a fixed chassis.

Is anyone else worried about Daisy being cancelled like Large Scale Diesel was? It's possible Daisy could cost more than other models in the HO range, but high prices didn't stop the Narrow Gauge range from being successful. I'm pretty sure Diesel was cancelled in Large Scale because Large Scale in general is in a really tight spot.

Like I said, Bachmann cancelling Daisy would just be them saying no to such great potential sales of a highly-anticipated product.

They wouldn't just hype everyone up over a highly popular request getting announced, with everyone saving up for it, only to throw it away, and dash everyone's hopes. It would be foolish of Bachmann to cancel Daisy. A lot of people, including myself, have been saving up for her. Like I said in another post, she's actually listed on Bachmann's web store, with a shipping weight, and a statement saying she performs best on 18" radius curves or greater.

At the very worst, Daisy could end up getting delayed, rather than cancelled completely. It took two years for Bachmann to get Oliver and Rusty out there, most likely because of certain complications behind the models, including their size/scaling. In Daisy's case, people think it would be very difficult to get her eye mechanism to work, all because she doesn't have a fixed chassis. I explained in an earlier post how Daisy's eye mechanism could work without being too difficult.

I know itís unlikely, but When the Bachmann Daisy model gets revealed, PLEASE have clear windows. I donít care if it shows the motor.
