Yes, the NGS has commissioned a number of cars from Bachmann to go with the Carflats.
Scaled to match the car flats or to match the rest of the Bachmann cars/buses??  :hmmm:

Although the cars scaled quite well it was a pity that masters used were of such variable quality. One of the better proportioned ones was the 5cwt van which bears an excellent resemblance to the Ford van it is based on.

Hello all,

The cars will be to 1:148 scale and will be a selection of era appropriate vehicles.

We'll confirm exactly which ones as soon as possible.

I have every intention of them being an improvement over previous Farish cars.

Cheers

Ben A.

Will the cars be available separately, or just with the carflats?

Hello all,

Once the specifics of the NGS cars are finalised I will begin a dedicated thread, with Tank's permission.

In brief, we are looking at packs of four vehicles in assorted colours and types.  They are intended for use with our Carflats, but won't be in the same box.

They may be available individually from Farish.

Cheers

Ben A.

Thanks for the list Richard. Funny enough the Commer PB Royal Mail van was in my list in post #1, and has been for some time! But although it had appeared in some trade list this is the first formal announcement.

Some useful new items here. The two cars should please someone, the Imp I learned to drive in is a good Carflat choice and the Jaguar is bang up to date. The military pattern Land Rover could be a Warwell/Warflat load. Think the Churchill tank is probably out of gauge.

The Ford 400E is a good pre-Transit choice with a wide palette of liveries already in the 1/76 range.

A modern fuel tanker fills another range gap.

Lyndon Davies, MD of Oxford, prefaced the new item announcements with "There is a perfect storm brewing for N scale enthusiasts, not just due to the arrival of those late items, but because we didn’t stop the development of further products. There are new further items being announced today, you will see a further 5 ½ items – the tanker being an addition to the haulage range, which I call a ½ model. We also have the Burlingham Seagull which technically makes it 6½ as I forgot to mention this in the past releases. The new items are all fully tooled – I didn’t want to announce these until the previous items were imminent so no hold ups with these."

Just to finish @newportnobby might be pleased to hear they are tooling a cattle lorry in 1/76 scale, so hope for N yet.

Yes, lots to get excited about and covering varied eras and themes. I'm particularly excited that I can finally afford a jag! 8)

Thanks, Mike. I'm sure it would be a good seller.
