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:
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
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.

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.
