Results of the 12th Annual (2008) 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.
