1. Yes, I would also buy a Black James.
2. It's not to write off Busy Bee James as a model, but I don't see what stopped Bachmann from painting him completely black.
3. That particular variant of the character is heavily complementary to the existing LBSC Thomas, so the sooner they assess it, the better. Either once they're through with Stepney or if they cannot announce him.

Black James would be a huge hit. And if he had been released alongside LBSC Thomas I can guarantee that they would've been a 2-1 punch for most people, doubling sales for Bachmann because most people wouldn't buy one without the other.

I'd love for Bachmann to make BoCo in HO Scale, even though he is a long shot. The biggest requests for engines in HO Scale are now Stepney and Black James.

For HO Rolling Stock, the Red Express Coaches should make a comeback, and it would really be nice if the Explosives Van, Chocolate Syrup and Toffee Tankers eventually do get made in HO Scale, as they're still exclusive to Large Scale.

For Narrow Gauge Rolling Stock, we still need the Brown Brake Van for the freight trains. The Blue and Red Coaches both used different toolings, and if we eventually get the Green Narrow Gauge Coach, it would also require a completely new tooling.

Personally, for the next N Scale engine(s) after James, I'm vouching for Gordon and Henry, but other possibilities include Emily, or Toby.

For N Scale Rolling Stock, we definitely need the Milk Tanker. Other possibilities include S.C. Ruffey, Red Open Wagon, or Brake Van (possibly Spiteful Brake Van).

Once the Toy Fair comes next weekend, we can only hope at least some of the products announced at least year's NMRA made the display, especially Daisy and Peter Sam. If Peter Sam makes it, maybe Sir Handel could get announced at this year's NMRA.

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

Thanks for the strong feedback for the Black James so far everyone!  Surprised how many responses I got in just under 24 hours of my post being up, wow!

The fact that everybody pretty much mutually agrees that black James should be the top recolor considered and even coming second priority behind Stepney in terms of what people want to see the most or even as a backup for Stepney really speaks high volume of how much people want a black James.  Same can also be said for how everyone also agrees that it would have made more sense over the Busy Bee James announcement this year too, but the fact that people still want black James in spite of the Busy Bee James announcement is very encouraging. 

Personally I feel the exact same way with Stepney being #1 in terms of future HO engines but black James comes at a very, very close second.  Either would make me happy but if Stepney canít be pulled off this year because of new tooling costs being an issue then thereís no reason for Bachmann to not announce a black James next.

I'm more impressed you managed to bypass the thing on the forum that automatically resizes images.

Which please, don't do again.

Yeah I figured it would. Don't know how to do it myself.

And lol. Relax Sparks. Don't get too big for your buffers. Forgot why I don't post here more often.

I'm sure the admins will take care of it, if it really is that big of a deal.

I don't know about buffers, but that many images sure are too big for a single forum post, even on a desktop browser they're excessive.

Very true, donít know why it didnít resize. But seeing as Iíve only made about 14 posts in the past two years, and this is definitely going to be the only one like this, again. I think weíll live.

Maybe by the time I post the next one the forum will be on a system that was created in at least the last decade.  Roll Eyes

When was this announced? I just hope that they cancel the busy bee James and do the black James instead.
