Pricing to be announced and availability next year.

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.

Don Sweet
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.

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

Greg Elmassian 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...

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

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

I wonder what type Bachmann is going to supply?
07-21-2020 10:34 PM
Greg Elmassian 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.

Paul Burch For Greg. Off this topic a little but you put a thought forward about what else they might produce. The Evans Railbox cars are going from around $250.00 to over $300.00 on Ebay.

Greg Elmassian Nothing, except it will be interesting to see what weight(s) will be included.


Aristo changed the number, type, and composition of the weights over the years, at one time you got 3 nice two pound lead weights, and over the years you got fewer, but optional free ones, then you had to pay more for the optional ones, then WAY more, then they were converted to zinc and about half the weight, and there was a move to move to steel weights.


That's the only difference I can infer from that information.


I sure hope they test the socket as opposed to not testing and the wiring errors from Aristo.
