Interested in Bachmann Model Trains ?

In this article series we are getting to know all about the different model train manufactures and the ins and out of the what goes into making these companies.. Lets jump in…

Bachmann trains might not be the most recent competitors in the model train industry. Nevertheless they have managed to position themselves in the market, mainly due to the high number of licenses and models they own, which lets them reproduce both ancient and modern trains. Their reproductions are so realistic that a lot of people have been fooled by a photo of a Bachmann train, thinking it’s the real thing. If you’re considering getting a Bachmann train, here are some models you might want to check out.

GP 40 Diesel.- This Bachmann train is an excellent reproduction of the train developed by General Motors. It comes in several colors, modeling the colors ad the logo of the actual train. By far the most impressive one is the brass model, which shines in metallic yellow, although this could discourage those that want a more realistic look.

U36B Diesel.- This modeled after General Electric’s model. It resembles all the aspects of this power machine. For realistic effect, it’s recommended that load cars are used with this locomotive, as opposed to passenger trains.

F40PG Diesel.- This is yet another train that is modeled after a diesel locomotive. As opposed to the U36B diesel train, the F40PG was a passenger train, and therefore, appropriate cars should be attached to it. The most looked after model is the Santa Fe, mostly because of the fame of the real train.

Old West 4-4-0.- If you want a western flair, you really can’t go wrong with this Bachmann train. It is exactly what it sounds like, and if you ever watched a western or cowboy movie, then you pretty much know what this train is like. If you really want to go all the way, set it up in a desert environment, with small Indians and desperados in miniature horses.

Prairie 2-6-2.- This train is famous because of the memories of its real New York counterpart. Also known as the New York Central, its black color and form will remind you of pictures of a New York that received immigrants in boats and loaded them into trains to take them to other parts of the country.

E60CP Electric.- If what you’re looking is a more modern look, then this Bachmann train is the one you need. The most striking feature of this General Electric model is the antenna-like devices on top of it, which are used to take the electricity that is needed to power the machine from cables. The only downside is that reproducing the cables can be a pain, so this model is only recommended for the committed ones.

Of course, there are more types of Bachmann trains, this was just a sample of the range of trains they have. Their variety really makes it worth at least taking the time to admire even more models in their catalog.
