    Thank you for your continued support of Atlas Model Railroad Company and Atlas O, LLC."



    That was unexpected at this point.

    I am with...

    ...88! :thumb:

    Like the pizza box I fell asleep in face first says, "You tried the rest, now try the best".

    I am writing a letter to the Attorney General to have a mandated warning applied to all pizza boxes regarding ther hazards of falling asleep face first in your pizza box.

    I think that means you have it disabled, whatever it is, in your profile.

    I was just reading a thread earlier today at Atlas reminding members of the annual July shutdown and then it went off line. We here at The Gauge know all about sudden updates and changes depriving us of our beloved forum! Atlas members have my sympathy and welcome to any who venture our way.
    I see these green and black boxes some of you are talking about...but I on't see any messages by them (?) Color me mystified! :)
    Ralph

    Edit PS..Oh, I see it now when I plut my curser on it. I see one can "add to my reputation" Be nice! :D
