Results of the 13th Annual (2009) Survey

Responses are indicative of desire for higher end plastic models, not brass. Sound option desirable on all locomotives. DCC option or "friendly" assumed.

Some early and late subclasses are combined on one line. If a manufacturer can produce the basic matching mechanism, then appropriate eras and subclasses should be derivable from that.

Understand that some responses were so general that they were included on a separate line even though they could be interpreted to be a more specific class already showing in the results.

It is VERY important to stress that this survey counts "types" of models desired and not "quantities" desired. For any given type, typically many quantities are desired; class H9/H10 steam locomotives, for instance.

-----------------------SPECIAL------------------------------------

This year we asked HO modeler's the following special question:

"If a model were produced of Pennsy H9 / H10 consolidations comparable
to Broadway Limited / Proto 2000 / Athearn Genesis, with DCC and sound,
at a suggested retail price point of around $350, would you be
interested? This is absolutely non-binding and private. Please
indicate desired era, model, and quantity. Thank you."

We received 80 responses who cumulatively said they would purchase
the following quantities of units featuring these eras of paint
and spotting features:

AS-BUILT H9   9
AS-BUILT H10  2
PRE-WAR H9s   48
PRE-WAR H10s  31
POST-WAR H9s  85
POST-WAR H10s 78

[Cumulatively, 80 people indicated they will account for sales of 253 units,
am average of over 3 units per customer.]
