New models. Again...

Post by qj6639 » 05 Mar 2016, 09:44

Hi all, user QJ6800 alerted me to a rerun of the Bachmann China SS8.

Three numbers including a decorated version and a Guang-shen Railway version (suitable for Guangzhou/Hong Kong trains).

As per the new Bachmann standard, the special plates (asides from the oversized front ones) are now painted on and prices, at least one on eBay, is $US290. Which is bloody ridiculous.

I've also found a new MTC product - the DF4C locos in 4 liveries plus a special version. Prices appear to be around 1500 - 1800 yuan, and if its brass as I suspect (from mechanical translation), represent excellent value. The details at least in the photos, are superb. I think I'll save my money for some of these.
