Default Bachmann Euro Coaches (?)

I flipped open my Garden Railways magazine and noticed the Bachmann add on the back inside cover, featuring the revised 2-4-2T in both US switcher/industrial disguise, and as the UK's "Lyn". (The only US loco ever purchased by a UK railway, from Baldwin.)
I was quite surprised to notice they were offering matching coaches to go with the UK "Lyn" - a 6-wheel coach and matching brake.



So I went looking around the Bachmann UK site to get a larger picture, and found them in the "Exciting New Announcements" under Thomas! I quote "Thomas large scale has seen the introduction of two new coaches, 97003 Emily's Coach and 97004 Emily's Brake Coach. "
I guess they figured the UK audience would know they weren't scale models of anything in particular, but the US ad didn't need to mention that ?

Pete,

I saw these in a photo Bachmann posted on facebook. They look pretty good with the Lyn, to my untrained eyes. The real question is does this mean the the 4-2-2 Emily is the next one in their Thomas line for Large scale?

Pete;

I believe Bachmann also forgot to mention that the real L&B Ry carriages were bogie stock. Still, those coaches do look good with the Lyn.

Back when I still had my original Lyn, I would use the REA (Aristo) green Sierra coaches with it. Folks in Roanoke never thought that odd, since the locomotive had Southern printed on its side tanks. They just thought it belonged to the US Southern Ry.

Best,
David Meashey

I saw the coaches at the NGRC in Kansas, and I don't think they were that expensive. Very nice looking unit made out of tin (I believe - but can't say 100%).

I have seen the coaches at the local hobby shop at England, they are plastic. They are the from what I have seen they look the wrong scale to be english narrow gauge, but to big to be 1:32?
All the wheels are metal and the center wheel do not have flanges. The roof is removable, paintwork is glossy.

Those coaches are the Thomas Clarabel coach bodies with new clerestory roofs and a new underframe, but they are a definite improvement as these have steps.

Burried in the latest news from Accucraft UK is the note that they will be producing L & B coaches. YEAH!!!!

In their stock status they have available for pre-order L & B 3rd class coach, 3rd class center observation coach, and composite coach. If these are done as well as the IOM coaches they should be beautiful.

In addition, they have announced production of the L & B "Lew" locomotive in both live steam and sparky versions and the "Lyn" in a sparky version.

See the complete information at http://www.accucraft.uk.com/2011/07/...rom-accucraft/
