Hey everyone! This new thread is for posting concepts/ideas for models and products that Bachmann could make in the Thomas and Friends range, whether it be HO, HOn30, G, or N.

This will be the main place where I post links to any Bachmann concepts I make on my Twitter. But anyone can make concepts and showcase them on this thread. Artwork, physical models, maybe even just a text description, you name it!

Anyways, just for convenience sake, here are all four of the Bachmann concepts Iíve made so far. Just so they can all be in one place and so that those who havenít seen them yet can see them...

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1177613904421064704?s=21 ó Stepney

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1176567007338041344?s=21 ó Ryan

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1155648220262854656?s=21 ó Green NG Coach

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1155658970951872512?s=21 ó Refreshment Coach

Which oneís your fav and what other concepts would you like me to do next? Hope you like them.

I've already expressed my thoughts on Stepney and Ryan, but the Refreshement Coach is an idea I'm keen on and would love to own should it ever be made. The Green Coach also looks nice and is something to consider if options for Narrow Gauge rolling stock ever runs dry.

The only suggestion for a concept I have at the moment is a G/Large Scale Mavis. The idea has been mentioned often for a few years and Mavis is set to make her Day Out With Thomas debut at Strasburg next month, though I'm not sure how easy it would be to undertake with the bigger size in mind.

So I made these concepts a little while ago and I thought Iíd link them here. Sorry it took me so long to...

First is a genuine concept for a Bachmann LBSC Thomas. I did take some liberties with this concept by giving it a front coupling, a new lamp, and a new face. But anyways, here it is.

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1181644627897548801?s=21 - LBSC Thomas

The second one is more of a joke concept. Requested by @LightandCoal on Twitter. Itís the famous (or infamous) fan character, Timothy the Ghost Engine In Bachmann form. This oneís just a joke, donít take it seriously.

https://twitter.com/streaksmeargle/status/1181588955206012928?s=21 - Timothy  Tongue

Hope you all enjoy these concepts and I hope you donít mind the joke concepts. If yíall do, I wonít link anymore joke concepts.

I've decided to go ahead and jump into the concept art bandwagon once again with something special;





It's the OO Scale Thomas you've always dreamed of...!

I really like your idea! It's got almost everything, except for mentioning the wheel size. Bachmann got that for the N Scale Thomas though, so if they were to do this, they'd likely get that correct. I'm not gonna lie, I'd totally buy that if Bachmann were to make it.

Bachmann trains are awesome. I hope they come out with Stepney one day.

I'm really liking a lot of these concepts.  The new Thomas is definitely something I would have preferred over the current Bachmann Thomas.  I have a feeling that offering different facial expressions would have been a lot more well received than moving eyes personally.  The LBSC Thomas looks great too, I wouldn't be at all surprised if one got announced next year. 

As far as future ideas for concepts for someone on here to take on, I would really like to see someone attempt Sir Handel.  He's clearly the top demand for the next narrow gauge engine seeing as how Peter Sam was recently announced.  Either way, after how well Stepney, Ryan and the new Thomas were very well-received on Twitter, I think a Sir Handel concept would be pretty popular if anyone wants to give that a go.

My suggestion for a concept is BoCo. If Stepney does get announced, I have a feeling the demand for BoCo will then increase. The last engine from Season 2 Bachmann hasn't made yet, now that Daisy is on the horizon for 2020.

My wishlist for HO Scale: Stepney, BoCo, Ryan, Sidney, and Norman.
