Yep, the Evans were popular, and I don't think they were produced in great numbers. I agree.


Also I like the RS-3, very distinctive, and since I run sound, love to have the Alco "rattle itself to bits" sound.

That's a good question Pete, I will "wager" aristo, but what did they put on the eggliner that they are selling? That may be a clue.


If the eggliner has Aristo style couplers, then they have already used the Aristo molds to make Aristo couplers recently.

Well, that was easy. Sure look like Aristo couplers to me.

Since Bachmann couplers are often at a different height, and selling the Dash 9 means people will be coupling 1:29 cars, would think the aristo coupler and aristo coupler height would be the logical path.


Let's see...

Bachmann introduced 1/29 scale couplers last year specifically for the eggliners and Aristo locos

For diesels fans this is a big plus for G scale. Please show your support with lots of replies. We want this loco to be successful. If it is then we might see more diesels and cars from Bachmann.

I do not speak for Bachmann . I am a dealer who has been a long term G scaler trying to promote our hobby.

YES! AND they are producing the road name I wish I had bought way back when. I WILL be purchasing two or three of them when they are available.
My regards.
