    DB 37 very good indeed. The next thing on my wish list would be seeing Bachmann producing GBRf coal hoppers, as I would love a rake on my layout. Best hope they read this !

  7. Matt says:

    Your editorial on 2010/1 releases is spot on. To say I am flabbergasted that Bach have not released any freight 47s would be an understatement. Nor any more of the 150s. At least will give my wallet a rest after an expensive run of 47 ltd eds this year!
