Bachmann product British Railways Announcements – Autumn 2021 includes class 47s and EFE Rail Adams O2 class locos

Bachmann Europe have continued their new policy of making quarterly product British Railways Announcements and whilst Covid-19 has stopped any physical showcase event taking place, Bachmann announced the new items in a video that can be seen here:

 

As usual I round up those items of a SR / BR(s) relevance below:

Bachmann 

Following on from yesterdays surprise announcement of an all new Brush Type 4 Class 47 Bachmann have today advised the models in the first production batch: BR two tone Green SYP, BR Blue, BR Intercity Swallow, Railfreight Distribution grey, and Railfreight Construction grey.

The EFE Rail range continues to grow

E85007 No. 182 in SR Maunsell lined Olive Green livery Pull-Push fitted
E85008 W34 ‘Newport’
E85009 W31 ‘Chale’

We see the introduction into the growing EFE Rail range of models supplied via other partners such as the The Kernow Model Rail Centre

  • E85007 SR O2 Class 0-4-4T No. 182 in lined olive green and pull push fitted as she was between December 1934 (when the ‘E’ Prefix was removed) and gaining unlined black in 1941 she was allocated to Plymouth Friary during this period.
  • E85007 SR O2 Class 0-4-4T No. W35 “Newport” in lined SR Malachite,  as she carried between May 1947 and c1949.
  • E85007 SR O2 Class 0-4-4T No. W31 “Chale” in lined BR Malachite with Sunshine lettering, as she carried between May 1948 and c1951

As with the previous O2 releases from The Kernow Model Rail Centre the O2s come with discs, bufferbeam pipework, an etched fire irons pack and in the case of the Isle of Wight versions etched nameplates.

Also new in the EFE range are PBA ‘Tiger’ bogie china clay wagons.

The full range and announcements can be seen on the Bachmann Europe website here.

  1. The O2 is not only a cracking model but a very smooth runner. Or at least all my 3 are!

    1. grahammuz – A railway modeller with a keen insterest in all things Southern Railway especially the 1946 to 1949 period. I can often be seen on the exhibition circuit with my Layout Fisherton Sarum or assiting MIke Wild the Editor of Hornby Magazine with his layouts at shows. I am also long time member of the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society

      We do not know yet, but as they have made a considerable investment in the tooling I am sure other versions will follow.

      The tooling is KMRC and the models are produced under licence for EFE
