I will certainly monitor the forums and provide info when possible. The Narrow Gauge long caboose and the Thomas items are this years large scale releases. I'm sure there will be more to come in the future!
I am really pleased to see a Bachmann official taking part in the forum here. That has been needed for some time.
On the other hand, the long caboose was really a last year announcement, originally to have arrived either right before or right after christmas and then apparently pushed back to this year for whatever reason. Certainly things happen but that means if I am understanding you right that the only new large scale from Bachman this year is the various thomas things. That would mean the earliest a new Spectrum 1:20.3 announcement would be made would be next year, and with the usual schedule of announcement and delivery that would mean that the earliest anything new would arrive would be early spring of 2011! Has Bachmann decided to move away from 1:20.3? I think there are several here who would be disappointed to say the least if they had.
I apologize for putting you on the spot but I'd rather hear the straight skinny from you than be browbeaten by the new self appointed enthusiastic spokesman on the Bachmann board.
