Bachmann reveals winter
2020 announcements

Bachmann has revealed its Winter 2020 British Railway Announcements today, November 3, offering a new collection of 'OO' and 'N' gauge models across its Bachmann Branchline, Graham Farish, EFE Rail and Scenecraft collections.

NEW PRODUCTS are in bound from Bachmann's brands this winter with the addition of new sound fitted locomotives in 'OO' and 'N' gauge, brand-new tooling for 'N' gauge with EFE Rail and a line up of new liveries for existing products in its ranges.

Bachmann Winter 2020

Above: Three new versions of the LBSCR 'Atlantic' are coming this winter from Bachmann for 'OO'.

The Winter 2020 announcements for EFE Rail include an all-new 'N' gauge model of the BR 'Shark' ballast plough for release in BR black, bauxite, olive green and 'Dutch' liveries plus the JIA bogie china clay wagon for 'N' gauge in pristine, lightly weathered and heavily weathered conditions. Both will feature turned metal wheels, Rapido coupling in NEM pockets, separately fitted parts where possible and authentic liveries.


Above: New for 'N' gauge in EFE Rail is the 'Shark' ballast plough.


Above: Also new for 'N' with EFE Rail is the JIA china clay bogie wagon.

All new for 'N' gauge is a collection of sound-fitted Class 31s from Graham Farish covering BR green, blue, RTC, Railfreight and Network Rail liveries. Priced at £264.95 per model, the new sound-fitted versions are due for release in December alongside the arrival of the refurbished Class 31s for 'N' gauge. 

Class 31

Above: Graham Farish's Class 31s will be available with factory fitted sound this winter.

In 'OO' gauge highlights include the addition of sound-fitted versions of the GWR '94XX' 0-6-0PT (due for release this winter) together with factory sound-equipped Class 117 DMUs in the same colour schemes as the first batch released earlier in 2020 (HM158). These will be joined by new versions of the Brighton 'H1' and 'H2' 4-4-2s in LBSCR umber, SR Malachite and BR lined black liveries (with and without sound), two new Class 57s, the return of the Class 108 DMU in BR green with speed whiskers, a SR 25ton brake van and a Mk 1 GUV in BR InterCity livery with Motorail branding.

Class 57

Tom Moore in GB Railfreight's Thank You NHS livery and two Easy Model 1:72 scale aircraft - Hurricane LF363 and Spitfire MK356 - modelling the two aircraft which performed a flypast for Captain Tom on his 100th birthday.
