I donít know if this has been talked about already but is there any info on remaking the red express coaches that were discontinued. Iíve always love the coaches but no one sells them and I would think there would be a chance since we got Gordonís coaches back with an updated paint job.

Iím surprised no one else brought this up, personally I think it is a great idea.





The most interesting thing about the first batch of express coaches Bachmann Trains released, was that the coaches werenít even in a proper red livery, but more maroon and not in a bright red like whatís on the show.







Hornby released ďJamesí composite and brake coachesĒ which was basically the same thing as the red express coaches and went with an updated livery after their first release in the 1980ís.



Naturally Bachmann would go the same route that they did with Gordonís coaches and update the livery to whatís accurate on the show.  They could either re-release them as the same express coaches or go with the Jamesí composite and brake coaches and I would honestly be okay with either.

I didn't mind the red maroon color on these coaches. On the tv show the colors were to bright making them more freshly painted. So on the model it looked like they had sun weather travel effect.

I wonder if he's talking about a reasonable price of getting one.

I really think the Red Express Coaches should also make a comeback.

When Bachmann brought back Gordon's coaches, they were given a yellow stripe. The same can happen for the Red Express Coaches.

Hopefully, the 2020 Toy Fair announcements would have the Red Express Coaches going back into production.

I would honestly do the same. The whole reason I got into Ho trains was because my grandfather had a layout when I was a kid and he had a bunch of those coaches with his Thomas trains. So I would like to be able to do the same thing. Plus I think the coaches look really nice with Henry or Edward.

It isn't fair to say that they weren't TV accurate. Considering they came out in 2005, they were clearly based on the Season 6-12 version of the coaches, which actually were a maroon and cream color.

I personally really liked that paint scheme, and actually preferred it over the bright red. However, I wouldn't really mind it if they changed it for a re-release.
