Bachmann’s Old West in HO

An exciting collection of early railroading prototypes joined Bachmann’s line with the 1976 catalog appearance of “The Great Iron Horse Train Robbery!” set. In HO Collector‘s 4th Quarter 2020 edition David Otte shares his examples of Bachmann Old West models, including the uncommon and challenging to locate train set that launched the line.

This series included not only train sets, but Bachmann supported its Old West line of HO scale with Plasticville USA structure kits and separate-sale rolling stock and locomotives. You’ll read about these vintage HO releases and discover the British connection via Airfix.
