Got this from the G1MRA about the Black 5. http://www.finescalebrass.com/index.html
Their home page has this statement:
We are happy to announce the release of our first Gauge One model - the Black
Five which will be made to the same level of details and authenticity as our O
scale models. The Gauge One Black Fives will be available through Bachmann's
distribution network. The Gauge One Mark I coaches will be available through
Tower Models.
We are also pleased to announce that all our FineScaleBrass models will be made
available in Gauge One. And many of the models we made for Bachmann and
Tower will also be replicated in Gauge One. This includes the 4MT, 14xx, 45xx,
Hall, Terrier, Scot, Schools, 8F plus many many more ...
As most of you are aware of , we make all of Bachmann's BrassWorks and Tower
Brass .. and in the recent months, we are bringing up the quality of the models
commissioned by Bachmann and Tower.

Good news indeed for modellers of Gauge 1 British outline. No matter who makes it.

AFAIAA they are ALL made by the same factory - live steam and electric.

We're on the same page, tac. I'm after the Accucraft garter blue 'Mallard' as well. I'll only be buying one though.

Hi All,

The latest issue of the G scale Society Journal has just arrived and in the back is an advert for the Bachmann Gauge 1 Black Five, at a price of £995.

Two styles of tenders, and shown in unpainted brass; I suspect that the painted version coil;d be more expensive - a price of £1200 has been mentioned.

The trader showing it is Martin's Models whose web address is - http://www.gardenrailways.co.uk

I have no connection with him by the way, and also there are no photos on his website!
