Last year proved a challenging one for Bachmann Europe Plc, with a changing retail climate, increased competition over several sectors and the closure of one of the production facilities operated by its parent company, Kader.

Bachmann Branchline’s well-modelled Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway 2-4-2 passenger tank looks spectacular in LMS crimson lake.

Despite this, however, the 2019 Bachmann Branchline and Graham Farish catalogues that were unveiled in London in January, alongside the announcement of several new tooling projects, contain a host of tasty new models utilising existing tooling – and there’s nothing wrong with that.

A batch of new high-resolution photos issued by the firm includes the beautifully sculpted Lancashire & Yorkshire 2-4-2 passenger tank that comes as 10730 in LMS crimson lake (31-168A) or as No. 1042 in L&Y lined black (31-171).

The useful LMS 4P Compound 4-4-0, with its superbly modelled cab interior, is shown in BR lined black with an early emblem as No. 41123 (31-932), and in lined black with a late crest as No. 41143 (31-933A). Dressed spectacularly in LMS crimson lake, the Patriot Project’s No. 5551 The Unknown Warrior is listed with or without sound (31-215 and 31-215 respectively).

Moving on to other regions, the LNER tradition is represented by B1 4-6-0 as No. 1264 in LNER lined green (revised) and the nicely weathered No. 61076 in BR lined black with a late crest (31-717 and 31-716A respectively).
