    Looks like a lot of the gang is already here and (some that I'd rather not see aren't). Too bad how our old haunt was hi-jacked and forced into retirement/restructuring. It got to the point where I merely lurked on occasion and spent more time at the workbench.

    BTW, my C40-8's arrived, got real ditchlights and headlights and have been pressed into service. These loco's are simply awesome.

    Well, it looks like there is a lot to explore around here.

    Brakie - Are there any forums you aren't a member of?

    Ralph's for fun!

    Welcome aboard Dave! The Gauge underwent an update this year that knocked it offline for about a week. I went through severe withdrawal! :) I can relate to Atlas Forum members feeling hi-jacked. Hope you enjoy your stay here!

    Hi Dave, good to see you hanging around here. This is a much quieter, gentler board than we were used to at Atlas. But at least your old buddy isn't lurking around here. However, he is on one of the other forums, so be careful.

    :wave: Welcome Aboard Dave and all the other New former Atlas people also. This is the place to be friendly and helpful also. If you have a question just ask, the response is quick. We also like input as well as pictures. I think you guys may have found a new home, we hope so. We kind of feel that once you make a post you are then a fellow Gauger. :thumb: :wave: Jim

    Hi Dave! :wave:
    Welcome to the Gauge..Glad to see you.. :D I am only active on 5 forums..I visit the other from time to time and there are some I no longer visit..I was just about to quit the Atlas forum when they shut the forum down so I doubt if I will be going back as I suspect it will become like it was before the shut down... :(

    Anywhoo Ain't those C40-8s great looking engines? Almost makes me want to change eras. :D

    Good to see you, Dave! :wave: The more the merrier! :D
    Sorry to hear it, Brakie. I always found your posts on the Atlas forum to be informative. Perhaps some of the upgrades they're making will reduce the number of trolls on the board? :thumb:

    It's great to see your posts. You're an asset to any forum.
    It's good to see you. This is a very cool board.

    Phew! This forum and the cockpit of a 747 have a lot in common! Its gonna take a while to figure all this stuff out. Anyone seen posts from Fitch, Albee, Dean or Christian floating around?

    I doubt that the Atlas forum will come back. I think it had become a real liability for them. On the up-side it was a very active and responsive board in its time. This one seems more active than the others I've checked. Things will probably pick-up even more now that the Atlas ex-pats are arriving.

    Dave: I think Fitch is around, but haven't heard boo from Albee Dean or Christian. Christian was posting less and less for whatever reason before Atlas "shrugged".

    Welcome Dave. It looks like a lot of the old Atlas gang is here. This is my
    first post here also. Bob Miller, I'm glad to see at least one other ATSF nut is here too.

    Got that right, Dick. Nut and ATSF to boot.

    And if Jim gets Dean here, we have another.

    And Sprink, that is one of everything as long as it is ATCHISON TOPEKA AND SANTA FE.

    I emailed Dean today to give him the URL link to this form and Railroadforums. Hopefully he'll check in soon.
