Bachmann locos - date of manufacture

Postby Donwu » Tue Aug 10, 2010 8:45 pm

Hi, this is my first posting on this forum...
I've just bought three Bachmann LMS locos and I'm interested in finding out their date of manufacture. Just spent the last hour or so searching for such info' but without luck but it did lead me here! Is there a published list giving manufacturing dates?
Two of the locos are Scot class 31-276 & 31-277 (split-chassis which I have just fitted DCC decoders - not too difficult but time consuming). The third is the Fowler 'Jinty' 32-227A, which I know is reasonably new and thats 'DCC ready'

Thanks in advance

There's a downloadable list of product as a PDF on Bachmann's site, just in case that is useful. http://www.bachmann.co.uk/past_and_present.php
It is compiled by an enthusiast, not the company, and generally lags behind the releases a year or two; does appear to be pretty accurate.

But it doesn't give release dates, for that I would presume reference to the annual catalogue lists is necessary, unless some kind soul has compiled a database?

Thanks for the replies.

I had downloaded that Bachmann list & I've just ordered a copy of Ramsay's British Model Trains Catalogue by Pat Hammond.
