By signing up you will get your hands on our highly regarded Collectors Club magazine the 'Bachmann Times' which will arrive at your door each quarter. This 64-page, full-colour magazine is bursting with informative articles we know you'll enjoy! 

When it comes to modelling there is always lots to learn and Peter Marriott, our resident expert, is always at the ready to give you his tips and tricks on crafting the perfect layout or diorama. We'll also take an in-depth look at the prototype inspirations for many of our upcoming model releases, as well as uncovering insights into road and railway history. You can keep up to date with what's happening within the club itself with our 'Club News' pages, and there is also a place for your questions and feedback with our 'Club Members Talk' section.

Also as a BCC member and Bachmann Times reader you will be first to receive our quarterly announcement catalogue the British Railway Announcements, which showcases our brand new releases all of which are scheduled to arrive that quarter.

The Bachmann Times magazine is also where we get to showcase our limited edition, BCC exclusive models. Each quarter we bring you a brand-new model from either our Bachmann Branchline, Bachmann Narrow Gauge or Graham Farish ranges, sometimes both! These models are exclusive to our club members and are only available to buy directly through the club; online, by phone or mail order, or at events that we attend - Click here to explore our current range. 

What is in your ‘TrainMail’ e-newsletter?

By becoming a member of the BCC you become a part of the Bachmann family, which means we always want you to be the first to know about the latest announcements and goings on in the Club and at Bachmann HQ. 

TrainMail will keep you up to date about the latest models arriving from your favourite Bachmann brands, such as Bachmann Branchline and Graham Farish, plus you will also find details of our latest limited edition models and any events that we are attending. We also have TrainMail competitions where you can win event tickets and more!
