Bachman Decapod's are they on again?

   In surfing the Brooklyn Locomotive Works site I see Bachman (person) Russian Decapods listed for late 06 early 07 release . Nothing on any discussion groups or here about a decision to do them after all. Photos of course show HO models, but some interesting roads"Atlantic Coast Line", "Susie Q", and of course "Western Maryland". May I conclude that Pete hasn't updated or changed that part of his site? Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake,Utah. "Would love an ACL Steamer ! "

Since Rio Grande - 4NScale just took down their reservations for the Bachmann Decapod last month, guess Pete has not gotten around to it yet. He sent out an email the other day that he was behind on some things due to back problems.

No, it is still "awaiting the design of a motor that will fit".

Has any life been breathed into the 10 wheeler, or is it still very much dead with a stake through its heart. I hope Bachmann isn't waiting for me to kick the bucket before a 10 wheeler is produced  ;D.

Same as the Decapod, awaiting a "smaller motor".
