'Bachmann Duck' release estimated for January 2013

Bachmann's forthcoming HO scale model of Duck the Great Western Engine has been given a predicted release date.

The resurgence of Duck's popularity in recent years notably prompted a return for the No. 8 engine to play supporting roles in the Twelfth Series.
However, Bachmann's long awaited creation has been revealed by Tower Hobbies and Wholesale to have an appraised launch date for the end of January 2013.

The proposed setting for the US would come almost a full 12 months after the character's initial development back in February. The latter news was first announced by British Railway Stories creator, Simon Martin.

Duck from Bachmann is expected to hit US model and hobby stores on January 30th 2013.


Thanks to Bass Tbone for the alert.


  1. It's definitely worth the wait, I can feel it

  2. I've been fearing this ever since Duck wasn't listed in NRMA's Product Announcements this year.
    Doggone it! I really wanted him to be in my Christmas special this year, though I gave a pretty flexible role on purpose in case this happened. I guess next Christmas I'll have to release an extended edition with him in it.
    But ThomasandPercyandToby is right; it's worth the wait.

  3. Can't believe I'm saying this, but Donald/Douglas's expression pretty sums up how I feel about this.

  4. Dang it....but I suppose good things come to those who wait. o_o
