  • About the "Home" Page

    This page will eventually be the landing page for the entire website.

    Currently it's still under construction, so we're directing folks to the Forum page, which will also be the most familiar page for our existing members.

    This page will features news, information, new posts and photo gallery images.

    At the moment it has some generic categories and sections that came with the software, so there's some weird sections like "cooking" and "travel". They'll go away before too long, but at the moment our first priority is getting the forum back online and running smoothly.

    Markers are required at the end of the entire TRAIN, not the last engine in the consist. (Unless the engines are pushers at the rear of the train...)

    None of the above. All of these on the lead unit only.

    No, basic logic will tell you an engine can only ever be in one
