It is now over three years since we last did a survey of large scale railways. These surveys guide us in the development of new products and marketing. We would appreciate it if you could assist us by indicating your areas of interest by responding using the letters below.

Please select one or more letters which indicate your interests:


A Live Steam – Manual control
B Live Steam – Radio control
C Battery Power – Manual control
D Battery Power – Radio control
E Track Power – Analogue DC with a fixed controller
F Track Power – Analogue DC controlled by radio
G Track Power – DCC not interested in programming
H Track Power – DCC and I do my own programming

And whether or not you use sound:

L – Sound used on some locos M – Sound used on all locos N – Sound not used

And also please indicate your scale/gauge from:

V - 16mm W - G Scale X - Gauge 3 Y - Gauge 1 Z – Other
Hence a G scale user who used radio controlled steam and battery power with some sound would respond B D L W

Thanks for your cooperation. We will publish the results on this forum.

Peter, if it's not too late, how about adding minimum radius.... perhaps use the LGB radius numbers.
Just trying to be of assistance.

he's looking (of course, no negative) at his products.

minimum radius would have little to do with electronics, as well as grades, rail profile..

Of course I would have eliminated scale, and added narrow gauge, standard gauge, steam, diesel, electric...

I completely agree Greg. The question about gauge/scale makes no sense at all.

Gavin,

Thanks for the thought. Perhaps next time although I suspect that many people (other than those using LGB track) would not know.

Greg,

We are also doing this for our retailers who have a much broader interest than MyLocoSound.
