Started a little bit ago.  Bachmann is on now.

just watching everyone complain about Bachmann MSRP is worth tuning in.

Athearn - 15 minutes of HO, 15 seconds of N.   :D  But they did tease a new semi trailer for the F89F long runners.

Walthers just started.  Looks like they are about 45 minutes behind.

So what did Bachmann have other than $30 gondolas?

They had triple hoppers, 40' high cubes and depressed center flatcar with M551 Sheridan tanks.

Honestly, I'm kind of surprised that none of the manufacturers had any kind of truly new announcements so far. I dont follow HO closely, but even I was aware of everything they have been talking about.

If y'all would just stop fighting it and let us assimilate you, then there would be no problem with HO scale bias.

I've been watching a bit of this, because I just happened to get an invite from Atlas earlier today.  I wouldn't have even known about it otherwise.  Glad I just happened to catch Jason from @rapidotrains.  He made a comment that N scale trains are small enough to put into your mouth, and then he literally put the butt end of an N scale Draper Taper into his mouth like it was a cigar.  Comedy gold.  :D

That's a steal from The Big Bang Theory. The N scale scene is at 4:04:

I missed the beginning with Bachmann.  Did they talk about the Hudson?  Jason from Rapido put on an awesome show from his basement 1:1 Via car.  Definitely the highlight and well worth the price of admission.  One thing that was interesting, is that the model railroad industry seems to be booming during this pandemic with everyone spending endless hours at home.  Seems that will continue for a while.  A silver lining - at least for those that have not lost their livelihoods.

Yes, they talked about the Hudson. If i remember correctly, info or a brochure should be on the website with details by next Wednesday.

I swear, someone needs to give Rapido's Jason Shron his own TV show.

OK so the Facebook video is open to non-subscribers.

Bachmann:
Hudson obviously.
GP38 with sound. Both DB and non DB versions. The drawings show a GP38-2 early phase with the square air filter box.
Bethlehem 100t hoppers
40' high cube appliance box with smooth sides and regular or sliding doors. All new tooling? I hope.


Didn't see anything else notable. Athearn did mention a 53 trailer but didn't show anything.
