    Well, another year has gone by - - The Gauge is 6 years old now... and a few of us are still here :) :) All these members joined in December 2000 and were active in the last week.... Note: The earliest date for any information on The Gauge is 12-15-2000.

    The Gauge has become a second home to a lot of us... some of you found your way here in the last few years and have become good friends to us "old timers" (No offense Catt :D :D )

    We have weathered changes, some larger than others and have seen members come and go.... But The Gauge still remains a great railroading bulletin board with a great contingent of members and staff.....

    Thank's and Kudos to all of you!!!!! :D :D :D

    You all ain't kicked me outta here yet? Well, you have Catt to blame for this. I seem to remember him bugging me back then to register on this and and that new forum that was turning up. I guess you guys are one of 'em that won, eh?

    Ahh yes, Dec 2000. We were busy transferring all the assets of our company to a friend and getting ready to retire. It was two years after that before I found the Gauge. Lucky me, finding a great bunch of friends that helped me more that you can imagine.:thumb: :thumb:

    Happy birthday . I have been here for a year now and feel this is the best model RR forum out there. I enjoy the input and questions. This is also a very easy forum to navigate. Keep going the way you are.

    Happy Birthday to The Gauge!!!

    Wow - six years?? I missed the first third of these years - but until now I didn't realize that this happy bunch of model railroaders has been working together for so long a time!

    Like it has been said before by others - for me The Gauge is still THE forum for railroad modelling. So here's to the NEXT six years! bday1
