What a slog - just finished, having started yesterday morning!

Voted for 80 or so items. Mainly modern departmental and freight stock. Just about every crane listed (modern and preserved). GWR and SR preserved stock. 1923 and 1951 Pullman stock. Lots of underground.

I don't expect many if any will be produced in the next 5 years, though I would buy any that are (finances permitting). But, if I don't ask, I won't get.

If nothing else comes of it, at least I've found some new sources of reference in the links.
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

How about - at long last - a SWT 450? I really can't see why we've had the 350's for so, so long without the 450 appearing!

I wan't aware of this before!

Had a good look through, voted for mainly LMS and early BR wagons.

I didn't know what everyone was meaning when they kept going on about the "Twins". Had a look and I quite like them (for a diesel!) so voted for them as well.

Oh yes, and voted for the Beyer Garrett. I mean, why wouldn't you want one of them?

I would buy a class 25/2 as well.
start the campaign!! bachmann must have all the drawings sorted already???

Tim

I have contacted Farish about the later body-style Class 25's (and split-box Class 40 while I was at it) and they have passed the message onto their development department.
I did contact the Wishlist poll compilers last year about the lack of these 25's, but it seems they were only going to put it on the agenda - not the actual poll (which seems a bit pointless). I am hoping that if people contact Farish directly they may think about producing one in future, as they basically have the chassis already (though most later 25's lack water tanks) and must have drawings from the 4mm model.

Cheers
Paul

How about - at long last - a SWT 450? I really can't see why we've had the 350's for so, so long without the 450 appearing!

Because WCML layouts are very common and there's lots of complementary stock, whilst there's hardly any RTR SWML stock to go with a 450.

Surely the expensive bit of the development is the moulding, which was done and paid for ages back. Even a limited edition run of 450's to test the water would be more lucrative than the 350 in the white livery.

With the 319's due out next year a Sutton loop layout would be possible. The more skilled could convert a 150 and 319 into a 455, so with the 170's and 159's pretty much everything would be there.

And if southern electric stuff isn't popular why do ED's sell?

Because older southern stuff is more popular ;)

Judging by the price some 73s get sold at I'm not sure they are all that popular mind!

Don't get me wrong, id like a 450, I'm sat on a 455 at Vauxhall as we speak, but it's not hard to see why they've not done one. Did they ever release the OO gauge one?
