    Hello, I'm new here. Kind of an Atlas forum orphan. Just wanted to say hi and I hope I will be of some help as I know I will be helped myself.:wave: Amybody here I know?

    Welcome aboard Jeremy! I'm a frequent reader, rare poster at Atlas so I do recognise your name. Say, your location as "Central Iowa" reminds me that I lived briefly in Marshalltown 22 years ago where there was great CNW rail to see.
    It wouldn't surprise me to see more Alas folks show up. We had a recent forum upgrade here that left us w/o our usual digs for a few days and many of us needed a place to go then. Glad to return the favor.

    I live in Boone only 20 miles from there. I was born in Ames so I am not "from" Boone:rolleyes: . Yes I remeber the CNW days. Now all I see is UP yellow. That's why I model what I do. It's a kinda freelanced railroad that took over the UP. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hi Jeremy!
    No, Jeremy, I don't know you (yet)! But just the same - welcome here in our circle! Anybody is welcome when he introduces himself in such a likeable way like you did. :) :) :)

    And we'll surely get to know each other, just like I made a bunch of true friends here at the Gauge. Be assured, you hit one of the greatest forums anywhere on the WWW! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Hey, Jeremy! Increase the count of people you know here by one. :D

    Dog, Cid, it's good to see you guys here as well. :thumb:

    I'm just curious why Atlas didn't give us (or at least me :p ) any notice that they were starting their "summer vacation" early? :confused:

    We are beginning to look like emmigrants washing up on the shore from the Atlas ocean. Looks like a good peaceful shore to be on.

    The New Colossus

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame,
    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
    With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Emma Lazarus, New York City, 1883

    Hello Sprink. Welcome to the Gauge. I just landed here myself a couple of days ago

    You'll have your work cut out keeping up with all the Sunday Photo funs on all the forums. I hope you set one up here too.

    About ten years ago Boone advertised for someone to open a hobby shop in town. I was out there three of for times but couldn't put the package together. Did you get a good shop? I hope so as it seemed to be a nice, friendly town.

    Another from Atlas.

    I've only lived here for 8 years but there is a hobby shop here. It's Boone Hobbies and it's down town on Story street. It's a big shop with lots of stuff. He don't have much in HO engines but a butt load of rolling stock. It's worth a stop if you are in the area. Just don't strike up a conversation with Mike the store owner, you'll never get out.:rolleyes: :D
