All-new Class 20 leads
Bachmann has unveiled its Spring 2021 range with news of an all-new BR Class 20/0 diesel for 'OO' together with tooling revisions for its 'OO' gauge GWR 'Modified Hall' 4-6-0 and a list of new liveries on existing models across its 'OO' and 'N' gauge ranges.
Leading the way for its 'OO' gauge Bachmann Branchline collection is a newly-tooled BR Class 20 Bo-Bo, following close on the heels of the soon-to-arrive all-new Class 20/3 (HM165) for 'OO'. Bachmann's new tooling suite will enable detail differences between class members to be reflected accurately and the models will include cab interior and directional lighting for the first time. Digital Command Control (DCC) sound-fitted (SF suffix to catalogue number) Class 20/0 models will also be available.
Above: A disc headcode blue Class 20 is on the list of brand-new Type 1s modelling 20057 (Cat No. 35-555/SF).
Above: The third of the new Class 20s models 20227 in BR Railfreight grey with a red solebar (Cat No. 35-357/SF).
Initial releases include D8015 in as-built condition with disc headcodes, oval buffers, plain bogie equalising beams and nose end ladders in BR green (Cat No. 35-351/SF), 20057 with disc headcodes, Oleo buffers and fluted bogie equalising beams in BR blue (35-355/SF) and 20227 with headcode boxes, cab-mounted high intensity headlights and fluted bogie equalising beams with weight reducing holes in BR Railfreight red stripe livery (35-357/SF).
Bachmann's 'OO' gauge GWR 'Modified Hall' has also been revised for its latest releases, with a modified front end as a result of enhancements to the tooling suite. Two models will appear initially as 6990 Witherslack Hall in BR lined green with early emblem (31-785) and 6998 Burton Agnes Hall in BR lined green with late crests (31-786).

Both will appear in DCC ready and DCC sound-fitted formats.

Bachmann's Graham Farish 'N' gauge range will be bolstered with a new 'N' gauge Class 66/7 66783 The Flying Dustbin in GBRf Biffa red livery, while the rolling stock roster is boosted with a BR Mk 1 Restaurant Unclassified (RU) in BR maroon, 50ton 'Parrot' bogie bolster B in BR grey and a 16ton steel slope-sided mineral wagon in BR grey (see table for more information).

The Lucston buildings see a bank, pharmacy, signal box, yard crane, station building and footbridge added, while the Wigston examples include a new farmhouse and cattle grid. Other new 'OO' additions include a model of Goathland Garage and a North Eastern railway station, together with an oast house, field shelter, low-relief hotel, a pair of rail-built buffer stops and two braziers (see separate table).
