One response to “Like buses…

    Hi Harvey

    It’s called reinventing the wheel. They have almost totally exhausted new diesel loco models so now it is reincarnation of those gone before but of course updated. “Mine is better than yours!” There are still some Diesel Multiple Units worth doing as a model, but these are now being priced “out” for a three or four car set. We are looking at over £300 plus and the market will not take it.

    There are still a good number of BR era Steam loco’s well worthy of new models but again I feel that as each year passes and they get further back in the “memory” and again the manufacturers will not take a chance. It will be very interesting next year as to what Hornby and Bachmann announce.

    In addition we are also now seeing the steam loco models as just upgrades of former models i.e. Terrier, Duchess, Princess to come, Lord Nelson etc rather than, as I said, going for new models.
