#TFNY: Bachmann Trains Will Roll into Toy Fair with Five New Trains...

Written by

A few weeks back, my wife and I took The Rock Daughters to their first big train show. They loved it, and that was expected... after all, we have a several trains here at Rock Father HQ, one of which is from Bachmann Trains. I'm always interested in seeing what they're up to, and this year Bachmann Trains is introducing five new ready-to-run electric train sets in the two most popular scales at Toy Fair 2018 in New York. Today we've got early details on all five sets, along with photos of two of them!
