The an­nual Wish­list Poll is back for 2016 - but if you want to vote, you’ll have to act soon, as it closes on Oc­to­ber 29. The pur­pose of the poll is to pro­vide an easy and en­joy­able way for mod­ellers and col­lec­tors to tell the ma­jor man­u­fac­tur­ers and com­mis­sion­ers of ready-to-run rail­way mod­els what they would like to see made from new tool­ing (ex­clud­ing mod­els an­nounced, tooled or made since 2000). To vote in the 2016 Wish­list Poll, go to: rmweb.co.uk/wish­list-2016 Dj­mod­els has an­nounced that its pro­posed ‘N’ and ‘OO’ gauge Class 92 (MR227) will be avail­able in Cale­do­nian Sleeper livery with white side stag em­blem. Each model will come in a spe­cial box with a lim­ited edi­tion cer­tifi­cate signed by DJM’S Dave Jones, and David Simp­son, the pro­duc­tion di­rec­tor for Cale­do­nian Rail­ways. Enough ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est have been made to en­able com­puter de­sign work to start, which should be com­pleted by the end of Novem­ber. It is hoped that tool­ing will start shortly af­ter, with de­liv­ery ex­pected by mid/late 2017. See www.dj­mod­els.co.uk for more. Our very own Ge­orge Dent has been beaver­ing away on yet an­other book for Crowood Press. Build­ing Coaches is a com­pre­hen­sive tome that cov­ers all as­pects of de­tail­ing, build­ing and im­prov­ing coach­ing stock, from fit­ting close cou­plings to paint­ing and weath­er­ing and build­ing brass, laser-cut wood and even 3D-printed kits. Lav­ishly il­lus­trated and fea­tur­ing Ge­orge’s usual friendly yet au­thor­i­ta­tive in­struc­tion, this book will be a great ad­di­tion to your book­shelf. Price: £25.00. Avail­abil­ity: All good book­shops or www.crowood.com
