Bachmann Spectrum

In 1988 the model railroad company Bachmann introduced the "Spectrum" line of higher quality equipment. This included more realistic paint schemes, updated motors, and better detail.

Different company

Spectrum was considered a totally different company from the regular Bachmann company. The initial offering was a GE 44 Ton Diesel. Later on, the Spectrum line expanded to include an EMD GP30, a Pennsylvania Railroad K-4 Pacific, and a General Electric Dash 8-40C.

In 1998, Bachmann introduced their Spectrum H0 scale 2-8-0 Consolidation, which was selected "Model of the Year" by the readers of Model Railroader magazine.

By 2000, Bachmann Spectrum was no longer considered a separate product and became one of the Bachmann product lines, as Spectrum was finally included in their regular catalogs.
