Bachmann has revealed the latest progress with its brand new tooling for the English Electric Class 20 for ‘N’ gauge and the Southern Railway Pillbox brakevan for ‘OO’ gauge.
On Tuesday March 13 Bachmann revealed its 2012 catalogue for its ‘OO’ and ‘N’ gauge ranges offering modellers a tantalising selection of more than 25 new models for release over the next 18 months across the two scales.
