Don. I like freerails as it is. I especially enjoy seeing the narrowgauge work of folks from all around the world. I am a member of other railroader forums, and some are just social activities and some are nuts and bolt pedantic folks. I model in On30, so my intersts are USA prototype, but freelanced. I also like that we don't have sales on the site, some of the other sites are just link lists to ebay.... Thanks. Greg In Australia.

It's a great site. The diversity is amazing. I especially like the scratch-building and kitbashing attitude of the forum instead of the RTR mentality of some of the other forums I've visited.

I wouldn't change a thing. I do like the fact that no selling goes on either. Really don't want to wade through a bunch of posts selling stuff.

So don't change a thing.

Great site and one that is not stuck with the 'DC or DCC' format as seems to be the case with most UK forums I have visited but is receptive to other ideas such as radio control ... More pictures would be the only other comment ..

Keep up the good work ..

Andy

FreeRails is what it is because of all the members that contribute ideas, photos, and yes, even questions. If you are a lurker, and like the site---post something---and make it even better.

If, at any time something "bugs" you about whats going on here, Feel free to PM any of us--unless you request that it not happen, your post will be shared between us. We will talk it over, and get back to you.

Sorry If I am a bit late in posting, to many projects underway.
Free Rails is a great spot to stop by and have a gander lots of cool modeling goes on behind these pages.
I would like to see if you can somehow enable me to download my images from My Canon EOS 400D for some reason my files are too big so need to post from my wife's smaller camera. If that's me just holla.
It is also great to converse with folks miles away with the same passion in this great hobby.
Keep up the good work.
Nuf said.
Rod.

I like that there are folks here who are knowledgeable about using r/c in (non-Large Scale) trains. I also enjoy hanging out with folks who do scratch-building and kitbashing.

The fact that there are couple other people here interested in mining and desert themed layouts is a bonus!

Look in the instruction book that came with your camera. There is usually a way to reduce the file size before the picture is taken.

Otherwise---this from the "how to post photos" sticky--

Note that the picture must be less than 3MB in file size, and not more than 6 Megapixels (e.g. not more than 3000 x 2000 pixels).

If your camera produces pictures larger than that, for example some digital SLRs, you must resize them yourself before uploading, otherwise you will get an error. A good free program for resizing images is Irfanview -- download from: http://www.irfanview.com/

Hope this helps.

Herb

Freerails is a bit quieterthan some of the other bigger forums out there, but I emjoy that it seems to cover a few slightly different topics. The responses and discussions are normally useful and productive as well. There also seems to be a good number of "do-ers" on this one, with straight forward and simple updates on what people are up too. A few of the other forums seem to suffer a little bit with drifting of topic really quickly to become unrelated banter, and verge on sounding a bit childish.

Wouldn't be much I'd change with Freerails. I can drop past everyday or so, glance at whats new, and see whats of interest.

Cheers,
Dan Pickard

Like
The fact that it is a friendly place, sometimes forums can get too big and lose touch with their roots.

Like
Seeing how modellers in other countries, the US in particular, approach the hobby. I think that we in the UK can learn a lot about scenery from the other side of the Pond.

Dislike
What is there to dislike? L:
No, can't think of anything at the moment.
