There's been a lot of talk lately about new products for 2006 from the various manaufacturers.

In relation to this, and specifically Bachmann, everyone is wondering what they are going to announce.

What I'm wondering, is where the remaining items are from 2004, such as the Mk2 coaches supposedly released in January of that year?

A friend of mine who works for Alstom now, but worked for B.R. Doncaster in the 1960s and 1970s tells me that you could assemble a real Mk2 coach in under 2 weeks, but it takes Bachmann over 2 years to produce one of 1/76th of the size.

It's amazing that folk are interested in the stuff that they announce this year. We may not see it until 2008.
