I wonder when we are going to see these coaches as they are still 'TBA' in The planned Farish release schedule from October 2018 - September 2019.

Quite worrying with the last considerable price rise since they were originally announced...

The OO gauge one's are out but no sign of the N gauge one's for the foreseeable future...  :worried: :confused1:

Cheers,
Mark

More worrying is whether they'll match up in height with the Mark 1s.

Lack of Mk2s are pushing up eBay bids for the old models

4 Regional Railways coaches just sold for £121  :goggleeyes:

If it's the old tooling Mk2s then that's about double what I've been paying for them.

I assume itís the new ones - Regional Railways wonít be 2Fs, theyíll be 2As.

Edit: found them, itís the old ones, thatís mental then!

Decorated samples of these were at Warley to-day, but the latest indication from the Bachmann website is that they have been delayed until June 2020:

I'm hanging on to my China quality 2Ds with separate interiors from 2004 which were £10 each. Paired with MK 1 RBs and RMBs and they are spot on for 1974 WR rakes.
Plus the best close coupled coaches I have. without close coupling :)

Hi,

I asked the Bachmann staff at Warley re. the omission of the Farish 2Fs on the availability list they had posted on their stand. 
Apparently the production slot went to 'something else' and there is no production slot scheduled for the 2F currently, so it's back to TBA.  Was advised very unlikely before Q4 2020.  Q4 2020 for production or release they could not specify, just best guess Q4 2020.

A bit disappointing but nothing to be done about it I guess.

Such a shame Hornby haven't downscaled their 2E, or 2F stock!

These people really cannot be trusted to give dates that are even a good faith attempt to be accurate.

Bachmann are just getting worse, massive delays and excessive prices, they are clearly not interested in N gauge. The competition in both N and 00 is snapping at their heels and rightly so. If we need modern coaches just turn to Dapol Mk3s at £21 a piece and widely available.

Which coach would Revolution do? Mk1 and Mk3 are done - so that leaves Mk2's - 2A is done and 2F is imminent, if anyone announced a Mk2F now it would take a miracle to beat Farish to the shops given theirs is done and just awaiting a slot. So you are down to 2B-E not sure how any of them would sell after the Mk2A and 2F are out
