While checking out a hobby shop yesterday (see other post), I got to talking with a clerk about the new Thomas in large scale. We thumbed through the new catalog, and I was surprised to see that not only is Bachmann making a Thomas set, but separate sale Thomas, Annie, and Claribel. I was shocked, however, that they are also making Percy and the troublesome trucks as a set and separate sale items as well! This is excellent news!! I don't need the bmann track or transformer, but those locos and cars will definetly be welcome additions!!
Having had several young guys over, Percy seems to be the second favorite, after Thomas, of course..
