Current Models: The four non-gangwayed coaches recently released by Bachmann are in BR lined maroon livery (era 4) and, for the first time, come with passenger figures in the seats. The models each have a recommended retail price of £39.95. The inclusion of passengers is a major move forwards in making the models more realistic when in use, but how do we cope with them stored in a siding? That has always been the argument by manufacturers for not including them in the past. Perhaps Bachmann are testing the water to see how you react to them. They certainly do look good.
