Hi everyone,

I have been working on documenting Bachmann Large Scale items for many years, but I have not been able to find the story behind The Bachmann radio Controlled "Green Lightning" Set #90101.  

This is a picture of the box top and another of the contents:

The set was made in 1990 or 1991 and pictures I have show it to be the 27mhz version.   It is extremely rare and the last time I saw one on Ebay was four years ago.  It was never in the catalog. 

Who was this set made for?    Confirm the set number?   Where was it sold?  Any other info??

Even Bachmann doesn't have info on the set, and they have been of considerable help to my project.   I hope to eventually publish a book on Bachmann large scale, and will gladly give credit to anyone who can provide me any info about this set.  

Thanks for looking.

Dave. you are right about none of the RC sets being in the catalog, I just wanted everyone to know I checked.

There is nothing special or different about the pieces in the set, but for the historical record I want to know more about the set that is why I have asked the questions. The only thing different is the package with the "Green Lightning" wording. The set is the same as the Holiday Express set except that the loco in the Green Lightning set has the ATSF engine rather than the Holiday Express engine in that set.

At the end of the day I am still looking for answers.

Love your photo I always wondered what submarine crew looked like!!!

Thanks

Can you Confirm the Bachmann Set Number on the box please? Also would appreciate knowing which town you live in or the town you bought it in.

Thanks,

Bill
