A little information if you please.

If you would be so kind as to give us your thoughts of the Freerails site

What is it that you enjoy.

What is it that gives you a better understanding of the hobby as a whole.

What are the things you dislike and why.


Freerails is not a large forum, but we think it offers a good spread of topics.

Your general feeling about the site will help us to make things a little better

Freerails is not a large forum and it was never our intent that it would be, our aim has, and still is,to bring folks of like interests together in a freindly atmosphere.

Freerails depends on the topics and posts that the members submit. The more the better.

Thanks
Don

I enjoy the variety of topics that pop up AND the fact we can pick and choose. When I come to the site I click on 'recent' topics and look over the entries. I generally will open most to see what's going on with that particular individual and the topic presented. I may or may not post at the time.

I particularly like the 'how I did it' posts / topics. And I like to see the results others have had with their railroads. Since I'm friends with one of the most frequent contributors, every new thing he does gets perused.

I also like the fact that pretty much all of the folks on Freerails are friendly and not nit-pickers and are the 'live and let live' sort. There are enough conflicts in the world, I don't need them in my hobby.

Last, I like the fact we dont sell here. I belong to a Yahoo group that may as well advertise themselves as Ebay Narrow Gauge.

I wouldn't change a thing.

I agree with Sullivan. I enjoy the variety of projects and the how to's. You can learn a lot from others who have built projects. I also click on the recent topics when I sign on to see what is new. I also like the friendly people here, they are always eager to help. I wouldn't change it either.

i enjoy the site and appreciate that its free and really open. thanks for that.

the only possible complaint i could have that prevents me from being more active here, is i mostly use my iphone to view the site, and the screen size is too large and the font too small to be iphone friendly. most other sites resize but i cannot seem to get that feature here.

other than that, i like reading here.

I agree with the above.

I almost always check the recent first to see what has been posted lately.

The friendly people here are a definite plus. I think signing your posts with your given name helps.

Gee whiz, I second and third all the comments I have read. Don't change a thing. Sullivan is right about the Ebay NG site, they deleted me when I mentioned their problem. Thank God we have this site, I may get a post deleted now & then, but I understand and will post something else. If I had more time, I might post some more but then I would need to build more stuff to post about, on & on...
Don-keep it like it is, as you can see-we all love it.

Woodie

I enjoy this site just as it is and wouldnt change a thing I mostly model standard gauge HO and most of the modelers here are into larger scale narrow gauge This is a great help to me because people here still build things here that cant be had over the counter In HO the trend tends to go for the RTR market and I still like to build things So keep up the good work and thank you for letting me belong to one of the best forums on the net Paul

As more of a lurker than a contributor, I'd say don't change anything. The depth of knowledge and advice available makes this is a real learners' paradise - a bit like being back at school but enjoyable! The students want to learn and the teachers make it all so easy. What more could you want?

HIYA..

I have to say, this is the best fourm I have been involved with.

"There is none of that only this scale " stuff. And freerails has everything from dead poor desert mining lines to super clean and polished trolley lines in the metro ..
Sorta like freerails is simply that, free to model what "YOU " like and everyone is happy and ok with it.
And frankly.. I'm really sick of having a gazillion things for sale emails loading up my inbox.
But most of all, ya 'll are a great bunch of folks!!
