The Pennsy rant thread got me thinking. Some claim there are more Western Modelers, some claim more Eastern. I want to know with an informal poll here.
Try to answer with your primary modeling era and region if you are a multi region modeler. There is an answer for those that don't have a specific region or time and just buy what catches their eye. I know there really is a central region but everybody always cites east vs. west. The Mississippi is generally considered the break point but use your best judgement if you are borderline. Area's like Chicago are a hard call because they served both sides of the country.
