Three Gn15 threads in the Narrow Gauge Forum have been moved to the Large Scale Forum.

Maybe the Administrator can shed some light on this move.

The vast majority of Gn15 topics on Freerails have been posted in the 'Large Scale' Forum

This covers 1:24 scale Gn15 G-scale and other similar large scales


There were a few other Gn15 and 1:24 scale topics scattered around as well

Most found in odd places have been rounded up and are now in the 'Large Scale' Forum

This is in an effort to consolidate same subject topics together in one place where possible


Also recently a number of technical topics have been consolidated in the 'Technical' Forum

This has been done so that most track chassis couplers motors and drive topics are together


Many topics have been started in less than ideal locations on Freerails in the past

When topics like this are seen by Administration if it makes good sense to move them we do


All active topics that are actually posted in on a daily basis can easily be seen on the 'Recent' tab

The use of the 'Recent' tab makes it very simple to find any updates to favorite topics


:f:

Thanks for the explanation Eddie.


I see the Gn15 tag has gone from the 'Narrow Gauge' Forum Sub-Heading:

' For our friends in Zn2 Nn3 TTn Sn On18 On2 On3 1:35n & 1:32n '


Good thing to do, so no new Gn15 threads are started in the wrong place.

The former appearance of 'Gn15' in the 'Narrow Gauge' Forum Sub-Heading only happened last year

This is why the vast majority of Gn15 in the past had always been posted in the 'Large Scale' Forum


It had never been stated in the 'Sub-Heading' as such but obviously the G-Scale was all there

There are a number of excellent Gn15 scale building topics in the 'Large Scale' Forum as well


It would be good for Freerails to attract more Gn15 modelers to post stuff in 'Large Scale'

At the moment though non-Members do not see many Gn15 photos on Freerails at all


This is because the active Members posting in Gn15 topics post their photos as 'Attachments'

Members may not be aware that ONLY Freerails Members can see this type of photo post


This is another reason why I constantly try to encourage the use of the FREE 'Members Gallery'

Photos posted from the 'Gallery' are seen by everyone which can mean more interest in joining


:f:

Thanks for the clarification.


I hope any other Gn15 modelers join in and share what they are doing.

I know you've explained it before,
but if you would go through using the 'Gallery' again I will try to figure it out. 


Thanks, Dave L.

I am kind of sad to see Gn15 get split out of the narrow gauge forum.
Seems like all narrow gaugers have something to share together.

For a while I was confused because I could not locate some of my favorite discussions,
that got moved from the narrow gauge forum as some of the Gn15 was posted in there.
I also see less interaction with narrow gauge threads now that Gn15 is in another forum.

If anything, there should be a HO gauge variant scale forum,
as all the odd HO gauge track scales share the same track and mechanical devices.

Most Freerails Members just use the 'Recent' tab to very simply locate ANY active topic

The 'Recent' tab pages contain all the relevant info. on ALL topics active in the last week

If you are not using the 'Recent' tab it is at the top of Freerails pages under the Banner loco



Also if you have forgotten or dont know where topics you have started are on Freerails

All you have to do is CLICK on your Members Name and you will be taken to info. about that

Likewise if you CLICK on any Members Name you will see info. on all topics they have posted
