How to Cast Your Vote: Step By Step

YOU CAN REGISTER your vote(s) by clicking on the ‘Vote Now’ image in the centre of this page. This will take you to a section of the familiar RAIL EXCLUSIVE web shop where you can select the specific models and add them individually to your shopping basket, as if you were making a purchase. You can also adjust the quantity required in this form but please be realistic, we are expecting you to honour your commitment and we may check with you if the quantity is unrealistic. If you want to express interest in more than one livery, you’ll need to hit the ‘Continue Shopping’ button between selections. Once you have finished making your choice (remember, you can vote for as many, or as few of the Class 24 variants as you like) then hit the blue ‘Checkout Now’ button.

You will be prompted to enter your contact details. There is also a field here for additional information – use this for any notes, comments or further suggestions. Next, click the big green ‘Confirm Payment’ button but don’t worry, there are no charges applied and you are not required to provide any form of payment. A confirmation page then comes up with zero pricing – just press ‘Checkout Now’ (using card, not PayPal) and your votes will be registered in the form of an order confirmation page. A copy of this will be sent to your e–mail address for your own record. You can come back at any time and make further votes, but we may check with you that this is correct. Please respect the system since we are endeavouring to record accurate data that will eventually benefit all diesel-era modellers.


If you are not keen on using the web to provide personal details, you are most welcome to e-mail your selection(s) to us via, putting ‘Class 24 Vote’ in the subject line and making sure to include your name, address and telephone number. Alternatively, you can write with the same information to: SLW, 20 Park Street, Kings Cliffe, Peterborough PE8 6XN, or simply pick up the telephone and ring 01780 470086. Votes need to be accompanied by full contact information to count.

The ‘progress towards target’, presented in graphic form, will be updated on a regular basis. It can be found here.
