I see that Bachmann UK's EFE brand has an O gauge BoBo, BTH type 1 / TOPS class 15 listed for release. My guess is that they have acquired the tooling used previously to manufacture the 'Little Loco Company' model. (This business sadly closed to due to the owner's serious health problem, the O gauge models he had produced were very much liked.)

Useful expansion in RTR O gauge choice, a compact loco useful for everything from main line operation to shunting. (We'll politely draw a veil over the manifest deficiencies of this and most of the other BR type 1 classes, which quite rapidly left EE's 'Thousand Horse' in sole possession of the field...) It's a neat looking machine which makes an attractive model.
