Noting the comments elsewhere about the use of a generic chassis to create countless models using that chassis (is the use of the Q1 0-6-0) it has occurred to me that if Hornby and Bachmann got there act together they could cut development costs on individual models and bring us a wider range of models including those with a relatively narrow appeal.

I don't know what chassis development and manufacturing costs are but if Hornby and Bachmann negotiated a deal to share the costs of chassis development on certain models it could be wonderful news for modellers and surely it would release development money for even more new models?

Tenders for example. What is wrong with sharing these?

DMU/EMU motors and bogies ditto.

They could jointly develop a Blue Pullman!

If this is a way of getting models that are considered to have limited appeal then I'm all for it. They could certainly set up a joint company with a new name specifically for this purpose.

So will we ever see Hornmann or Bachnby models and if we do are there any strong contenders?

Happy modelling
