At a specal press event on Wednesday 5th July 2017, Bachmann Europe provided updates on an absolutely huge range of their forthcoming projects in OO and N Gauge.
SE&CR Birdcage Coaches
The livery samples for the incredibly highly anticipated SE&CR Birdcage coaches were displayed and looked to be very impressive. The distinctive and intricate lining appears to have been faithfully recreated and is sure to be extremely popular due to the limited amount of pre-grouping liveried coaching stock that has been available in the past.
CAD files for the long-awaited Class 90 were shown and look to be very good at this early stage. It was noted that the loco will feature a servo-operated pantograph to allow it to be raised and lowered automatically.
As can be seen from the CADs, the DCC socket and lighting functions will be easily accessible through a removable roof panel.

The above three versions are all still available to pre-order HERE at an estimated price. As soon as Bachmann confirm the RRP of these models we will update our system to reflect this as well as informing anyone with a pre-order or email notification in place.
Mk2F Aircon Coaches
The Mk2F Aircon coaches are another of Bachmanns long-standing projects that has seen some impressive updates. On show were several EP samples which showcased the variety of lighting functions available on the pre-installed DCC versions.
The full range of Mk2F coaches, including: FO, TSO, RFB, BSO and DBSO
They have produced a short video to better show these off which you can see below.
All versions are still available to pre-order HERE on our website.
NER J72 0-6-0
Bachmann had previously announced that they were producing a new chassis to bring the J72 in to the DCC era. They have now also announced that this has been extended to tooling up new bodies to give options for a myriad of detail differences, including: rivetted smokebox, dart or wheel smokebox handles, standard or tapered buffers, cleared or barred spectacle plates as well as featuring a flickering lamp in the firebox area. With this new information, this now essentially means that the J72 will be a brand-new tooling.

At this stage there are three versions available to pre-order at estimated prices. Once again, as soon as pricing is confirmed we will update our system and contact anyone with a pre-order or email notification in place.
First announced bach in 2015, the first CAD images were available of the 45T Breakdown Crane which already looks fantastic.
This is obviously going to be an incredibly complex model and it won't be possible to have all the visible gear wheels moving but there are other features such as poseable outriggers that are already in the works.

All 4 versions are still available to pre-order with estimated pricing. As soon as we receive confirmed pricing we will update our system and contact anyone with a pre-order or email notification in place.
Production Class 40 141 in BR Blue - DCC Sound fitted
The Graham Farish Class 40s are now in production over in China and are still on target to be delivered in the final quarter of this year.
On show was the factory DCC sound fitted version which features 26 different sound functions and is very impressive.
All 4 versions are available to order HERE at £118.96 for DCC-Ready and £178.46 for DCC Sound Fitted.
SE&CR Birdcage Coaches
The N Gauge versions of the Birdcage coaching stock are following on in the wake of their bigger brother.
Detail looks to be very good and they're currently scheduled to be released in Q2 of 2018.

The Graham Farish versions are available in triple packs only and are all still available to pre-order HERE with esimated prices. As soon as prices are confirmed, we will update our system and notify anyone with a pre-order or email notification in place.
