I am not overly surprised that Bachmann UK have started distributing other model railway manufacturer's products under the EFE
label. Because yet again there has been significant slippage of their own product's arrival dates. It's a sad decline from what was
once a 'machine' that had a steady supply of newly tooled introductions to offer every year.

The V2 just slips back 3 months at every quarterly announcement: in other words there aren't the production slots available.
(Running EP's have been seen in the UK and gone to reviewers, so the tooling work is complete.) That says Kader consistently
have more profitable work available for their factory capacity, than what should be a rapid sell out OO loco.

It seems whatever 'grip' Bachmann UK managed to get on their production a few years ago, when you could actually start relying on their delivery dates, has slipped away again. I too have noticed how much larger the distribution side of the business has become.

It's difficult to foresee another large steam locomotive beyond the V2 coming from them now.
