Is This The Best Budget Bachmann Loco?

Today Jenny is taking a look at the Bachmann Robinson Class 04 in weathered British Rail black livery, which may well be the best budget loco you can buy from Bachmann.

    Hi Jenny,
    A great review of a lovely looking locomotive. Thanks to your review I think I’d best look for an example. Living in rural Victoria has it’s availability problems, the railway shop I bought a lovely BR 9F from for Christmas last year seems to have succumbed to Covid-19 and closed it’s doors forever so it’s a trip to the Melbourne suburbs on weekend to see what’s available over the counter before looking online. I think it’s important to support our ‘local’ (it’s a couple of hundred km away) businesses before looking further afield.

    I’m getting back into railway modelling after many years away from the hobby and I’m learning a fair bit from your videos. It’s great to see women in railway modelling too as they’re fairly thin on the ground in Oz.
