Greetings. As part of testing our online survey software, my partners and I have put together a short model railroad survey, predominantly about how and why we model railroaders buy the locomotives and rolling stock for our layouts and collection. The results should prove very interesting, particularly to hobby store owners. I would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes out of your day to complete the survey by clicking the link below. http://www.telenetresearch.com/modelrrsurvey.html I will post a summary of the results in about a week. I also hope to present detailed results to my local hobby stores. THANKS !!! Michael.
