    Hi all, this is TrainClown's better half. [​IMG]

    I have an idea of creating a forum for the spouses and significant others of model railroaders, or modelers in general. I was wondering if any of your "better halves" would be interested.

    What do you think, ladies?

    Best Wishes,

    Mrs. TrainClown, a.k.a. ShadowClaw :wave:

    Kinda like a "Football Widow"? or.....What she's thinking.
    "I ought to dress myself like one of his engines....Then maybe he'll pay attention to me!"
    I like the idea. 'cept my Better-Half wouldn't be able to get close to the keyboard to post anything.....I'm always in front of it.

    Don't think my wife would consider this since she has her interests that keep her busy and I have mine. As far as hobbies go, we don't get in each other's way, that way we keep the peace. fence1 That's what retirement is all about, we have her stuff, my stuff and our stuff. :cool: Trains and computers are my stuff. :D :thumb: :D

    Hey, Mrs. TC:wave: My beloved is currently working on an addition to my webpage on the life and times of a model railroader's wife. I let her know about your idea and have her get in touch.

    You would not want my wife anywhere near this forum. She HATES railfanning, modeling, model railroading and the fact that I hang out with such people<g>

    Mrs. TrainClown here. I would like to thank you all very much for showing an interest in my idea of creating a forum for the spouses/girlfriends of modeler's. I've spent nearly the whole day setting it up and now it's ready to go. It's called "Modeler's Mates" and can be found at

    http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=78093

    Just to clarify, "Modeler's Mates" is not for female model railroaders. It is for the spouses/significant others (male or female) of people who are modelers, railroads or any other modelers.

    Thank you to the administration of The Gauge forum for allowing me to put this idea here. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with my new friends soon. [​IMG]

    See you there!

    Mrs. TrainClown, a.k.a. ShadowClaw,
    Site Admin, "Modeler's Mates"

    I don't want management anywhere near your forum. She already has ideas on how to make the life of a model railroader uncomfortable. She doesn't need any new ideas. She is doing fine on her own Lol. Sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    ShadowClaw,

    Good luck with your new adventure. I visited to see what you've started and you've done a great job. My wife isn't into this much but for those that are that is a great idea.
