Bachmann Model Railway Wagon Reviews

Intermodal & Container



Recommended - This model is Recommended to purchase. Recommended models should be fully featured and have only a few minor mechanical or detailed limitations. For a railway model to be rated as "Recommended" a model must score 8 or more. Intermodal & Container Rating 5/10, no points for handling, but full marks for detail.

Bachmann Intermodal & Container

These are two sets of two permanently linked container carriages. The detailing on these models is excellent, the best I have seen. The price was cheaper than the Hornby equivalent who's detailing in my opinion is poor to say the least. There is however a handling problem with these models. I have experienced a lot of trouble with these models on points and while backing up as well as on shallow gradients caused by uneven track. They also have a tendency to derail on tight bends such as you find at points. If you are unable to reach areas of your layout it may be best to run these in that area. They do look great in the sidings though if you can get them in there.
