EFE

On 7th October 2016, it was reported that Gilbow (Holdings) Ltd had gone into Administration a couple of weeks later Bachmann announced that they had bought EFE. During the third week in November it was reported that 7 of the previously announced models would be released and would be produced in China rather than being overprints. Any further news regarding the other outstanding models or new models will be published on my News pages.
