Bachmann Europe plc chose the Churnet Valley Railway in Staffordshire for its Summer Press Day on Friday, August 31, followed by a special day for members of the thriving Bachmann Collectors’ Club on the Saturday.
The presentation included a detailed update by public relations manager Dennis Lovett on all sectors of the company, including Bachmann Branchline, Graham Farish, Liliput, Scenecraft, EFE die-cast models, Pocketbond construction kits, Wm Britain military figures, Woodland Scenics and Proses model railway accessories.
There was also a video presentation about progress on forthcoming Bachmann Branchline and Graham Farish models, and a searching question-and-answer session with Bachmann Europe’s managing director David Haarhaus before a buffet lunch and return journey along the line and back behind Class 33 No. 33 102 Sophie, and a chance to see the much-anticipated OO-gauge ‘Western Pullman’ in action around a short circular track in one of the Kingsley & Froghall Station buildings.
