    The time has come for me to quit the internet, getting too costly.
    Good luck to all members.

    I'm sorry to see you go Shamus. I've learned much from reading your posts & articles.
    There are times (at least once a month) when I want to chuck this whole on-line thing too.
    Though The Gauge may be at a loss, I'm sure Badger Creek will prosper from the extra time & funds you'll now have.
    Good luck to you & yours, friend!

    shamus - I'm sure we'll all miss your insights and terrific photos - I know I will. Guess we'll have to figure how to muddle along without you. Try to visit once in a while.

    I'm sad to see you go! You've been a tremendous help and inspiration in the short time that I've been on the board. Try to stop and in and visit now and then!

    God Bless!

    I'm unable to give an eloquent response. All I'm able to say is....

    DUDE! MAJOR BUMMER!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    May your tracks be in gauge, and your gears well oiled.

    Shamus,

    Sorry to hear you have to give it all up. I'm sure you'll drop in from time to time to see what's happening. Good luck with Badger Creek! And keep us all informed of how everything is going.

    Just holler a "TOOT" for me every now and then!

    TOOT!

    I think this could be classed as a derailment at The Gauge, hopefully only temporary.

    I've already spoken to you Shamus but would still like to publicly thank you for your great contribution to this community

    Thanks friend

    Shamus:

    It's sad tou hear that your are leaving us. [​IMG] I hope you can come back here, very soon. I don't know about the UK, but here in the US we can access the internet from our local libaries. As someone who specailizes in communications, I would find a way back! I hope you are not gone forever. I'll be looking towards the day you will be back.

    All the best,
    Andy

    I can't say it any better that others already have, but I do want to add my best wishes. Your contributions to the arts of model railroading and photography are valued by us. I do hope you are departing with a round-trip ticket in hand.

    Shamus, you can rest assured that you will NEVER be replaced by anyone here on the Gauge.
    Your knowledge and your gift to explain will be sadly missed.
