  • Welcome to Version 4.0

    Welcome to our new server and the new version of Vbulletin!

    We have upgraded the forum to provide you with a better user experience. The new server should be faster, and the forum software has some nice new features as well as the usual general improvements and security upgrades.

    While it may look different, the place works pretty much the same as always. You should be able to do everything you could previously.

    One thing that has changed is that the Photo Gallery has a new location. In order to fully integrate it with the forum software, it needed to be on the same domain. It is now located at This change will solve the log in issues that some members experienced at the previous gallery. Now, one log in will work for the forum, the photo gallery and model railroad product review section. They're also all have tabs in the top menu bar, so you can easily move from area to area on the site.

    Welcome to our new home, hope you enjoy the improvements!
