Because of non-railroad abuse of the site, new members MUST use their first names (at least) to join NO EXCEPTIONS!

Because of spammers making our lives miserable, we are forced to change the way that interested folks join us.

If you are interested in joining, write a decent sized paragraph about your modeling experience. If you are a newcomer to modeling describe the type of model railroad that you would someday like to build. Tell us what your favorite TYPE railroad is, and a little about your self.

then put down your real name, and your Email address. Send all this to

Your user name, the name that you will post with, will be your first (given ) name, and the first letter (or first two letters, if there is already a member with the same combination) of your last name. We used to let members pick their user name, and asked that they sign posts with their first name--So that someone replying to the post would not have to reply to ''Mr Dumbo'' or something akin. Some observed that request, some did't. This new way encourages readers to feel more like they are among friends.

If you are approved by an administrator, the administrator will sign you up

You will be assigned a temporary pass word, which you can change yourself whenever you are logged in, to something more meaningful. Be aware that pass words are case sensitive.
And if you ever have problems, get in touch with
We are here to help. That's why we make the big bucks!
