Slightly off topic for British Railways, but it may be relevant to those who model more than one scale or continent!
Help shape the modelling future
A major manufacturer (name withheld by request) has asked the NMRA British Region to help decide what models they will manufacture in the future.
They are trying "... to work out if there are any gaps in the American market which might be filled with a new model. The item needs to be popular with modellers, hand a reasonable lifespan and ideally appeared in several liveries".
Now it's over to you. What is on your 'wish list' which is not currently being manufactured. You need state:
Steam/diesel/electric Loco type: something about the original liveries you'd like to see etc.
Remember that, for a commercial organisation to spend time and money this has to have a reasonable chance of selling in some numbers.
Answers to me please as soon as possible. I have been promised that NMRA members will be given first notice if and when any new models are produced.
Please send e-mail messages to firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also share this message with any other persons you think would provide useful information. The main consideration is that all replies must come via the NMRA British Region.
