The latest edition of the Bachmann Times, the official magazine of the Bachmann Collectors Club, is now arriving with club members and this issue contains details of our latest limited edition model which is available exclusively to members of the Bachmann Collectors Club.

Our new OO scale VGA Sliding Wall Van No. 210418 carries the Railfreight Exhibition livery (37-601K) and coincides with the 30th anniversary celebrations of British Rail’s re-launch of the Railfreight brand and introduction of the sub-sectors in 1987.


Following the successful launch event at Ripple Lane TMD, Castle Green, London, on 15th October 1987, a Railfreight Exhibition Train toured the UK promoting the launch of the new Railfreight sub-sectors and the services provided by each sub- sector to potential customers. Our model depicts VGA Sliding Wall Van No. 210418 which carries the general Railfreight logos, ‘EXHIBITION’ wording and Carlisle Currock’s ‘Fox’ depot plaque. The real vehicle was fitted internally with a PA system to aid promotional activities and would have been seen around the country, often coupled to other freight vehicles decorated in a variety of Railfreight sub-sector liveries – such vehicles are well catered for in the Bachmann Branchline range.
