On Wednesday 23rd August 2023 Bachmann Europe Plc attended the 60th birthday celebrations of Monk Bar Model Shop. Located in the historic city of York, Monk Bar has been a stockist of Bachmann products since they were first launched in 1989 and was named Bachmann Retailer of the Year in 2007. Bachmann used the event to launch two new Sales Area Exclusive Models which were on display throughout the day. Fittingly, as the models depict two Scottish prototypes, these will be available from Bachmann retailers in Scotland, the North East and North West of England, and North Yorkshire.
The two models depict Scottish Class 20 duo Nos. 20048 and 20100. Both examples sport Disc Headcodes and carry the West Highland Terrier logos as applied by Eastfield Depot during the mid-1980s, where the pair were allocated. No. 20048 went on to be preserved and can now be found running on the Severn Valley Railway – again carrying BR Blue livery with West Highland Terrier logos. No. 20100 however was scrapped in 1991.
Both models will be available in standard format or with SOUND FITTED and these have a RRP of £224.95 and £324.95 respectively. With delivery due in September 2023, all versions can be ordered from retailers located in the specified regions now.
