It’s that time of the year again when MREmag and RMweb run there annual wish list poll as a chance for all of us to vote for the railway models (in N and oo) that we would like to see made.
The poll provides a simple way for modellers and collectors alike to inform the major manufacturers and commissioners of ready-to-run railway models what they would like to see made from new tooling.
Over the last number of years that the poll has being run a number of the top voted items have subsequently been manufactured or announced. So although there is not a guarantee that winning models will be produced it does increase the likelihood, as it is known that manufacturers do take account of the results in when considering their future plans.
This years poll that can be found here via the RMweb forum (you do not have be a member of the forum to take part in the poll) is running until 28th April 2013.
Whilst of course I am not in a position to influence any voting, the fact that you are reading this might mean that you have a Southern Railway or Southern Region persuasion and therefore voting in the SR categories could benefit us all… Vote Southern!

Pity that the LBSCR D1 0-4-2T has been ommitted from the poll, as there were plenty of them about prior to WW2 (45 still in service in 1935), and it’s an essential engine for any central section secondary line.
Sorry, forgot to add, D1s could also be seen on pull push workings on the main line, especially west of Brighton
I don’t have any direct involvement in the poll itself but there is an email address on poll home paw and the team behind the poll are very approachable.
