TOOL­ING AROUND WITH EFE

Model Rail (UK) - - What's News -

Bach­mann has al­ready made an im­pact on the Ex­clu­sive First Edi­tions brand, which it ac­quired in late 2016 (MR229). New blue pack­ag­ing, fea­tur­ing a map of Le­ices­ter­shire as its back­ground, com­ple­ments a sub­tle change to the logo. The mod­els will ben­e­fit from the change in own­er­ship too: ex­ist­ing tool­ing will re­ceive more panel lines and wing mir­rors, with fresh tool­ing in the off­ing. EFE’S 1:76 scale Lon­don Un­der­ground EMUS could re­turn too, with the tan­ta­lis­ing prospect of fac­tory-fit­ted mo­tors hinted at. In the mean­time, Bach­mann has cut back the num­ber of new re­leases per month: new for Au­gust is a Bris­tol VRT as Bri­tish Rail train­ing ve­hi­cle BNU679G; a Rib­ble Mo­tor Ser­vices­liv­er­ied Ley­land At­lantean will fol­low in Septem­ber, fol­lowed by a twin pack in Oc­to­ber, which features two Ley­land Ti­tans in spe­cial liv­er­ies that were un­veiled at LT’S Golden Ju­bilee open day at Alden­ham Works in 1983.
