I've been reading through the Summer 2008 edition of the Bachmann Collectors' Club magazine. It contains news and information of all the soon to be released Bachmann models. Produced by Bachmann, the magazine is an interesting read and does contain some good complimentary info on some of the models.

There is a feature piece on Fawley Hill and Sir William McAlpine's railway collection. Another article by Dennis Lovett looks at the evolving Era 2 open access and freight operations. Dennis also contributes an article on the resurgence of Scottish railways

There is info on Farish N scale models as well as a brief look at some Liliput releases.

BTW, the editorial does mention that a further 1500 models of the NRM Prototype Deltic will be produced by Bachmann.

Collectors' Club members receive 4 issues of the magazine a year + a quality calendar at Christmas (pictures from the artist Malcolm Root) + catalogue for 2009 on publication (worth £4.50) for either Farish or Branchline + a free exclusive members wagon in OO or N for an annual membership of £17.

The new club year starts on 1 July so Bachmann are taking renewals and new membership applications right now.

Full details of the Bachmann Collectors' Club, see: www.bachmann-collectorsclub.com/index.htm

I joined some years back when it was primarily directed at OO. But over time the content of interest to me got diluted with N scale and then bits from other parts of the world. Stopped by subscription last year.

As an avid colector of Bachmann I like colecting and fixing old locos (and buy some new ones)

I had considered joining the collectors club particularlyv as it mightput me in touch with other 'tinkerers' an 'fix it men' (or 'fix it women')

Might give it a go an check it out.

I will watch this topic and see if there are more positive comments on he collector's club.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Personally I think the Bachmann Club is very good value - the magazine is very much better quality then the Hornby offering even though it does seem to contain a lot of info on the various limited editions being produced for various businesses etc. Their own limited editions are very often very collectable and unusual , there is a free wagon(not to everyones taste perhaps) a calendar and the catalogue.

Thanks. Will log onto the site and see if it is possible to join on the net.

I also need to get a line on Bachmann spares and though I assume they are busy, they are slow to reply to emails. The ordring of psares on line should be made easier especially in the 'internet age'. As we are on he western edge of europe it is difficult to get supplies of what would be considered ordinary elsewhere. Internet shopping is a partial answer (as is travel with my work on occasion)

On with the pottering and tinkerin
