Bachmann Europe Plc today announced the new products that will be arriving during Spring 2021 for its Bachmann Branchline, Bachmann Narrow Gauge, Graham Farish and Scenecraft ranges – catering for N, OO9 and OO scale interests.
Twelve months on from the launch of the first British Railway Announcements, which saw Bachmann implement a new policy for the announcement of new products, the Spring 2021 collection marks a significant milestone in the implementation of this new policy – with the unveiling of the first all-new tooling model for the Bachmann Branchline OO scale range via British Railway Announcements.
Today’s news cements Bachmann’s approach to bringing all new products to customers and consumers in a prompt and concise manner, whether these are reintroductions of existing models with new liveries or identities, or all-new tooling projects such as the Class 20/0 – which has been developed quietly over the last few years before being revealed now that production is all but complete.
Alongside the Class 20/0, there are further additions to the Bachmann Branchline range including a new version of the Class 94XX Pannier Tank and the reintroduction of two popular 4-6-0 Steam Locomotives, the Standard Class 4MT and the Modified Hall – the latter having received modifications to its tooling to more accurately depict the front-end of the prototype.
The Class 24/1 and Class 121 DMUs receive SOUND FITTED versions, as do the all-new Class 20/3 locomotives – joining the previously-announced standard versions. There are also SOUND FITTED options for OO9 scale modellers with five Baldwin 10-12-D locomotives now offered with this popular feature.
Graham Farish welcomes the introduction of the Class 66 No. 66783 ‘The Flying Dustman’ in the bold GBRf Biffa Red livery, whilst there are additions to the range of N scale rolling stock including a further version of the forthcoming WD ‘Parrot’ Bogie Wagon, this time depicting the 50T Bogie Bolster B.
The Scenecraft range sees new additions to the Lucston and Wigmore collection that launched in Winter 2020, with essential items such as Lucston Station and Lucston Signal Box, plus Wigmore Farmhouse and Wigmore Cattle Grid – two rural necessities.
Furthermore, popular OO scale buildings like the North Eastern Railway Station and Goathland Garage now feature in the Scenecraft range, along with Rail Built Buffer Stops. In N scale there are further Low Relief models and a Pent Roof Garden Shed.
Consumers can get a taster of British Railway Announcements by purchasing the Bachmann Europe Model Railway Combined Volume 2021, featuring our current range of forthcoming
items, plus those still in stock from 2020 and earlier.
The Combined Volume Catalogue also features a sample edition of the Spring 2021 British Railway Announcements Catalogues, three more of which will be published during 2021 and these will be available exclusively with the Bachmann Times magazine – the official magazine of the Bachmann Collectors Club.
The 2021 Combined Volume Catalogue will be distributed to Bachmann stockists from Monday 8th February, whilst the first of the new items unveiled today will be distributed during the second half of the month – projected release dates can be found at www.bachmann.co.uk.
