'Sense' & 'Hornby' in the same sentence? :-)
In that case they'll do something like a proper model of a 4F 0-6-0, or stick to diesels.

I think it certainly shows the desire for some decent models of Southern prototypes. There are rumours that Hornby are already in the process of developing the Rebuilt WC, and the Maunsell coaches - as to the rest, I'm not sure.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants some more of the standards - including those LMS designs which were in widespread use all over the country, such as the Ivatt 2-6-0's.

The Ivatt 2MT 2-6-0 would be a superb choice for the average steam & transitional era layouts. Surely there are enough models of large Pacifics already.

You mean, like those Bachmann have announced and are already listed on their website and an example was displayed at Alexandra Palace last week. Keith

I think he probably means the 2MT rather than the Ivatt 4MT which Bachmann are to produce later in the year.

That's the Ivatt 4MT. There was also an Ivatt 2MT which is ideal for branch line layouts. Careful mould design would ensure that it could also be issued as the BR Standard derivative.

This is all rubbish.
The ROD 2-8-0 would satisfy so many varied modellers, from 1960s ER layouts, to pre-grouping, that how can you deny the vast number of sales that would ensue?

Definitely agree with that (and also JT's comment). I voted for it as my Number 1 choice, but did you the other people who are now asking for it bother to vote?
Good on you if you did! The poll results are being sent to Hornby and Bachmann.

If anyone cannot wait for an RTR model, then Comet do a lovely kit of this engine. Highly recommended.

I just want the class 14 and 17, and then I'll be happy. Oh and I'd like an 07 and a 15 as well, please. :-) Badger.

I was thinking more of the Class 2 2-6-0.

Interesting that there isn't a diesel request amongst them and yet in our shop new diesel releases are outselling new steam models by some considerable margin. Maybe the diesel modellers don't feel the need to respond to polls as the main manufacturers are now well aware of this trend?

Perhaps because that most of the main diesel classes are now represented? The "missing" diesel classes were in the poll - such as the DH Class 22. Its that there are so many steam loco's which arn't available.

Yeah! Did you vote for an 07 in the poll Badger? That makes two of us then! :o)

Actually, all my requests were diesels. A significant quantity of BR (and successors) diesel locomotives were or are available, but apart from a few examples (class 110, Networker, 158/9, 155 and the Lima 101,117, 121, 153, 156), very few diesel multiple units are or have been available RTR. I'm hoping the Bachmann Class 108 will be successful enough to change that (although I daresay DC kits are hoping otherwise...)
