Bachmann Large Scale 1:29 Scale DASH 9

Oddly enough, the locomotives still haven’t shown up on the Bachmann website – which honestly is one of the worst in the business -, so get in touch with your local dealers for more details.

I don’t know the official MSRP, but the locomotives are priced around 900 USD in the USA. In Europe, German shops RD-Hobby (external link) [DE] and Railroads and more (external link) [DE] offer them around 1100 EUR.
