    Well I have been hedging on doing this but I figure what the heck.

    So here is my website: www.tompm.100megsfree5.com

    Now this is not a finished product. I still have photos to add. Also I will be changing some of the backgrounds and layout of some of the pages. As I revise major portions I will post updates.

    Looks really good so far (but man do I hate popups. :mad: ). Keep up the good work and post more pictures of your layout :)

    Merry Christmas

    Awesome! I am hoping to hold the honor of being the first to link to your new site :) :) :)

    Well done. I really like the way you can look up by era. It drives me nuts trying to find out what is appropriate for the 50's. It seems manufacturers want to keep it a big secret. Seems they would sell more if they advertised what a given item is appropriate for and the build date if it is on a rollin stock. Anywho, I like your site!

    Thanks for the encouragement folks. Sorry about the pop up ads but right now that is all I have to work with.

    Jon if you would like to link the website go right ahead. I am glad you think it is that good. The eras I placed the cars in are based on either the build dates on the cars or what information I could find on their paint scheme. Also taken into account is the type of weathering I did for the car. They may not be 100% accurate but it is good enough for me.

    As I always say, "Count ye not the rivets of thy neighbor, lest thy rivets shall be counted by the Divine MMR and ye shall not run thy rollin' stock on the Divine MMRs layout" :D :D :D So I'm sure the age is close enough for me too ;)

    I Like It!

    I like it for 2 reasons.

    1. It's a railroad webpage.
    2. I like it more because of the roadname and its associations.

    I am a Reading fan having grown up along the Norristown Branch in Manayunk. I am also a "Corridor" fan and the action that usta rocket thru Trenton on its way to Philly. Kato makes a great looking N-Scale passenger platform that reminds me quite a bit of Trenton. I'm trying to figure out if I can model at least a 2 track corridor so I can rocket my Gs thru.

    Keep it up, I almost don't want to have to wait for the history.

    Tom,

    Like the page and all the info that is available. You are doing a great job of making your web presence an enjoyable one. I am using the pop-up eliminator software that jkrista posted in another thread and didn't get a one on your site. For those interested it is at

    Keep 'em coming

    Thanks for the tip on stopping the pop ups. It works real nice.
