I have not seen many bashed models from the Thomas range. When they were released a rush was anticipated. Personally, I was looking forward to seeing loads of interesting derivatives.
Maybe there are not actually many bashers out there, or are the chassis just not up to the mark?

There are some excellent Emily to GN Singles Conversions about.

Flick through some of the threads on this forum, there's plenty of examples of the basher's skills on here
