British Railway Announcements | Autumn 2020

Last modified date

We’re delighted to share with you news of the new products that will be arriving with Bachmann stockists during Autumn 2020. Whilst we would normally share this news at an event attended by our Trade Customers and Bachmann Collectors Club Members, due to the current situation we shared this news virtually instead and you can view our announcement video now.

The Bachmann Branchline OO scale range sees the introduction of new versions of the Class 40 and Class 66 Diesel Locomotives, along with LMS No. 10000 joining its twin 10001 which is also arriving this Autumn. SOUND FITTED versions of the highly anticipated Midland Class 1532 (1P) are also announced whilst three new versions of the VBA/VDA Van were unveiled too.

In N scale the Graham Farish range sees the addition of a further West Highland Line BR Mk1 Coach Pack allowing modellers to form an authentic train pack when combined with the forthcoming twin pack (374-993). We also see the addition of a Mk1 BCK in InterCity Charter livery complete with white roof.

Concluding our Autumn 2020 Announcements is the unveiling of our all-new brand – EFE Rail – led by a new motorised version of the popular EFE 1:76 scale (OO) London Underground Tube Train. This much requested model is joined by a number of other Great British Model Railways to complete the launch range for EFE Rail.

With a rich heritage in supporting traditional model and hobby shops, the launch of EFE Rail further reinforces our commitment to Bachmann stockists in giving them access to many products that they otherwise would not have been able to stock. The initial range includes numerous OO and N scale locomotives and wagons which have been produced in collaboration with third parties, such as Kernow Model Rail Centre and Heljan, to make these products accessible via Bachmann Europe Stockists for the first time.

Alongside the Tube Train in OO scale we are also proud to announce the J94 0-6-0 Saddle Tank, Class 35 ‘Hymek’ Diesel Locomotive and JIA and PBA Bogie Wagons. N scale modellers can look forward to the Class 17 ‘Clayton’ Diesel Locomotive and 14T Mermaid Ballast Wagon.
