Bachmann are delighted to be named Manufacturer of the Year - OO in the recent Model Rail Model of the Year 2007 awards run in conjunction with MRE MAG and RM WEB. The company also received awards for the best OO diesel or electric locomotive/unit with the Class 108 topping the poll and the Sealion ballast hopper topping the OO gauge wagon section.
Graham Hubbard, Managing Director Bachmann Europe said today we are delighted that the Bachmann teams efforts have been recognised in this way. It is even more rewarding in that the votes have been cast by customers in a joint competition run by the model railway media. We were naturally disappointed that as the leading supplier of N gauge products in the UK that we did not take at least one top spot this year but it is something we hope will be rectified the next time. We have plenty of exciting N gauge introductions due during 2008 and we expect to do much better now that the next generation of N gauge items are coming on stream such as the recently introduced N gauge Jubilee Class locomotive.
