We have made a few changes and one addition to the Gauge. Here are the changes and why: Scratchin' & Bashin' has been moved back to the Model Railroading section where we hope it will get more exposure and more posting activity. Gems has been moved from the Reference section to a sub-forum of the Photo forum. We are going to reserve this to feature the works of some of our members. You cannot post there, but you can request that someone's work be featured and we will give them a chance to have some of their more popular pictures moved to there. We already have a few requests that we will be working on very soon.:thumb: Academy Nominations has been deleted. We are no longer requiring a formal nomination for us to move a thread to the Academy. Again, if you want to see a thread moved to the Academy, just let us know and we will review it to see that it qualifies. Now for the addition. We have added a "Trainspotter ID" forum in the Reference section. It is right here. A lot of us, including yours truly, have troubles identifiying different model engines. Do you actually know the difference between an F7 and an F40? What's the difference between a GP-20 and a GP-38? If mine aren't put back in their original box, I'd be lost. So, if you have any pictures of any model engine be it diesel or steam, prototype or scale, past or current, and you know what model it is, then post it there so we can all use this as reference. If someone starts a thread on a particular engine and you want to add another picture of that same type, or you want to add some more facts about it, feel free to do so.The more information you can post or add, the more informed the rest of us will be. This should be a great reference tool for us all and should help us towards our goal of being the prime storehouse for all RR information on the net. The only thing I ask is that you start a new thread there for each engine type and that you post any information or other pictures of that model in the same thread. Remember, diesel or steam, prototype or scale, past or current, it doesn't matter, we just need the information posted there.
