I'd agree, lots of recent concerns regarding passenger stock addressed and evidence that scaling down of Kernow's OO range isn't a  one off

Won't meet everyone's wants but a move in the right direction

As I've said on "the other place", as I've moaned about Farish before it's now only right that I offer heartiest congratulations on this set of announcements.  Just what N needed.

(Just perhaps a tiny suggestion that if they could find a middle way between feast and famine for future announcements that would be nice! But that's really only a concern about affordability of so much stuff released in one go - especially if you're concerned that it won't be re-run for five years.)

Maybe they do have a spy on the forum after all, perhaps under the codename 'Cochise' ;)

I do agree on that.

This would be my only niggle, as well as minor points on livery choice for HAAs (I now don't know if the long announced Yellow cradle ones will appear).

Still, as you say, very positive overall.

I suppose the logic here is they had the tooling for the Mk1's in the machine for a good run (I don't know if they have to change anything to produce an RMB over an SK or if its all on one slide) but if you can get a long run it improves output owing to reduced downtime to swap tooling over. Perhaps longer runs with longer lead times is what the market needs to get quantities out there.

I am hopeful of picking up a good few blue and grey mark 1's and Mark 2F's now

You will probably find the long announced Yellow one will be in the same shipment - this video is for new announcements. The Standard 5 had no mention of the Green one that is also coming but did say that the 2 previous announcements without sound were getting sound as well. So anything already in the catalogue is not mentioned

Well I am quick to moan about the lack of coaches, so a big well done on this announcement - although the bank may disagree!

Dalek

So glad to see the mk1's, maroon Thompson coaches can't be far away. My only concern is that i would like to see retailers with stock for me to buy when i want, not getting financially hammered due to fear of never seeing the item for sale again and having to buy more than i can afford at the time when i could spread it out a bit and you know, eat and stuff   :*(

The Bachmann news webpage says that the Summer announcements will be at the York Society Show, so another reason to attend.

"This will be the first opportunity for members of the public to see the Summer N Scale British Railway Announcements",

A great announcement I feel, with plenty for most people. A sign that Bachmann are absolutely committed to Farish and supply should be significantly improved going forward!
