The not so annual 00 gauge wish list poll has gone live today and runs until 1800 on Friday 30 December. The team last ran The 00 Wishlist Poll back in autumn 2019. They listed over 800 items together with a massive Poll Guide and it simply became unsustainable – for many reasons – to maintain that format. However, some of those reasons have ‘dissipated’ and we have seen a number of model companies appear over the horizon. Therefore it was felt that a revamped version (but without The Guide) would be fun to run.
The purpose of The Poll is to provide an easy way for modellers and collectors to tell the major manufacturers and commissioners of ready-to-run railway models what they would like to see made from new tooling (excluding models announced, tooled or made since 2005). It should be noted that the poll is only being run for 00 gauge models. There are plenty of Southern Railway / Southern Region related items to vote for, hint hint.
Voting covers steam, diesel and electric locos; DMUs; EMUs; passenger and non-passenger-carrying coaching stock; freight and departmental stock see here The Contents of The 00 Wishlist Poll 2022
For those looking for a an N Gauge poll our friends at N Gauge News are running a Christmas Diesel and Electric wish lish poll at the moment and you can take part here…
A full report of the results will be published on RMweb from early January and no doubt in a number of magazines along with a summary of the Southern / Southern Region related results on this blog.
