Anytime now, we should get a look at the final versions of the products. We're almost there.

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

They look cool, but is it just me or are Annie and Clarabel a little...large?

They are, but that's how they are in the current show, so it's technically accurate, even though it's not ideal.

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

It's still kind of dumb. The HO and Large Scale versions aren't that big, these really should not have been this big either.

I don't notice that the coaches reached and matched the roof of thomas. That looks more ideal than shorter coaches at his coal bunker.

It's not just height. They're egregiously large compared to Thomas.

Maybe the length of the coaches are from a bad angle making them large.

The video showing off Annie and Clarabel specifically also show them as being huge.

I think it's strange that Bachmann have made Annie and Claribel a little bit to big and hey they are still not finished but I don't really mind as long as they look like Annie and Claribel in N scale.

Hate to bump a thread this old, but has Bachmann confirmed/denied that they may have acquired any toolings from Tomy for their N scale line?

I think it's pretty obvious from the tooling and chassises that they haven't

They didn't because the Tomix and Bachmann model's are built to different scales.
