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!

Toy FairWe do love our trains around here, but one thing that's important is the parental supervision when it comes to the electric models. With that in mind, my interest was piqued by the first-ever battery-operated train sets to be release by the folks at Bachmann Trains - the HO scale passenger United Railways Express and freight Fast Rail Flyer. Both are debuting this week at the New York Toy Fair, and you can see some specs and images below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine...

Bachmann TrainsI have to admit, I was having some serious childhood flashbacks when putting together our new Bachmann Trains Mountain Master HO Scale Ready-to-Run Train Set earlier this month. Exclusive to Menards stores this holiday season, this 155-piece set is everything you need to get your kids started with electric trains, and a set that's a lot of fun for grownups as well, thus gaining it a spot in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father.

Bachmann TrainsWhether you want to hear it or not, the Holiday Season is fast-approaching, and that's something I'm dealing with daily as I'm already assembling some seasonal coverage to appear on The Rock Father in the months ahead. Toy Trains have long been a classic staple of the Season, and this year, the folks at Bachmann Trains have teamed with Menards to offer an Exclusive Mountain Master HO Scale Ready-to-Run Train Set geared toward collectors and steam engine railfans. They hit The Rock Father with full details, all of which can be viewed below.

tf13buttonI had a Bachmann Train when I was a kid. It was one of their "Santa Fe" models, and I distinctly remember having to go to the local hobby shop for accessories. While I haven't yet gotten an HO Scale Train for my girls, I'm always tempted because Addie loves trains. Today comes some early Toy Fair news, as the popular characters from Disney's CHUGGINGTON are pulling into Bachmann Trains for an all-new line. Here's the message that I received here at Rock Father HQ...
