Being a Global Moderator can't you create a new forum yourself?  :trollface: :D

I'm holding out for the Railwire Narrow Gauge Forum.   :D

Holding out, but still posting.  :D

I think we just need a Seaboard/CSX forum, then scale matters not.

Having fun while returning all the trains to staging following last week's operating session.
WY79 southbound tank sweeper through Westville and North Woodbury:



Hi Rick, The only thing I didn't see covered in your excellent article on the PRSL was how you got trains into and out of Pavonia Yard. Do all trains have to back out onto the mainline?

Funny that the two recent N scale deserters are posting their HOishness on the N scale list.  :trollface:

Maybe you'll let me back in the N scale forum with this post.  :facepalm:  It turns out that my five-year old daughter was a little more upset by the conveyance of the Seaboard Central 2.0 than I expected, and she has begged me for a few days now to build her a new layout, so she can run her N scale train.  So, I built the table that you see underneath the HCD layout in the following picture:



The HCD table is merely temporary to allow me to test my new HO trains until I get the new layout going.  I'll figure out where to put my daughter's table once I get things built.  Oh, and I cheated.  I hooked the N scale loop of track up to the same DCC system that the HO scale track up top is on, because I don't have two DCC systems yet.  I bet that I'm the only person who can consist an N scale locomotive in an HO scale consist.  :D

Why -- even in HO they contribute worthwhile content ..


I concur, but this is the Weekend Update for N and Z, and there is one for HO etal too.

If there's ever been an HO scale Weekend Update, I've missed it.

The Weekend Update lands in the N and Z scale forum but is scale-agnostic.  I really hope folks aren't actually upset to see work in other scales on the Weekend Update.  I know I enjoy them all.

That's my understanding: anyone is welcome to post in the Weekend Update, regardless of scale.  The thread is put in the N and Z forum for exposure.

I believe the weekend update was something Richie brought over from the N scale Atlas forum when it shut down.  It has always been for N scale.  I'm not saying it still has to be, just saying it always has been.  It doesn't upset me to see HO but it might get a little confusing sometimes.

Not quite accurate...

There's been a weekly update thread at the Railwire for as long as I can remember, even when I had my first account circa 07/08...

In fact here's an old one started by Gregg Malkov...

It has always been a multiscale thread even back when it was Butch sharing his weathering...

Building a few T-Trak modules might make an interesting father-daughter project.
They could be set up on the HCD table once the HO trains are moved to the new layout.

That's just what Dee does... make absurd statements.


Hmm... yeah, just like
Kiz does...



And the absurdity is wearing on us non-simians

Exactly .. it's always been scale agnostic .. and I fondly remember when Gregg used to post here ..  I always looked forward to Ritchie's steamers, the pictures he found, and everyone's contributions .. RW may have started out as a primary Nscale site, but we've drifted from G to TT to whatever that 1:100000 scale thing that DKS built ..

Weekend update has always been part of Railwire, I joined both the Atlas forum and here the same week circa 2005(my current profile is newer, as I got swept for a period of non-use, something I don't miss!), way back in the dark ages when you had to warn folks if your post was photo intensive!..

I have never heard anything about the weekend update being scale specific, and I understood it was hosted on the N scale page for exposure as well...

I find alienating folks due to their scale choice in poor taste. Also, some of the folks we are talking about have been some of the biggest contributors to this forum in terms of modeling vs. griping.

Speaking of which, back to the modeling..and I hope to see some in of which in multiple scales! :ashat:

Me too, I only coresponded with him a couple times, but I miss his contributions and knowlege greatly...

Hoping now that things are settled down for me I can dedicate more time to modeling and contribute to a happy multiscale weekly update :)
