Well at the Moors valley G scale weekend we were able to borrow the bachmann 66 and have a play. These are paint samples so don't worry about minor specific details as there are things like steps in the wrong place etc.

Runs beautifully and looks great!

poor pic of the container wagons with the DRS one behind.

Very nice - thanks for the pic's.

Hope they will be doing some European mainland versions - I'll have a couple please !
I had a play with one of these a couple of months ago and I have to say that even on 4' 6" radii the bogies didn't half stick out! However, it's a good looking beast and with Aristo's promised refinements I reckon they'll sell quite a few.

4 ft radius, (8ft Diameter)
These locos realy are amazing value at around £299 in some shops
I will be watching future developements with great interest.

Be interesting to do a back to back comparison with the Piko BR218 currently running outside - anyone on the SE got a 66 ?
Bachmann released this information today:
