Welcome to the new, more streamlined Railroadforums.com. I've merged quite a few forums, combining like items and moving things about.

Nothing has been deleted, except for a few out of date "for sale" listings, but lots of stuff has been moved and re-organized. The goal is to make the place easier to navigate and have a few less nooks and crannies. It's always a balancing act between organization and having too many categories.

For now I've kept "videos" and "railfan photos" as two different categories, which allows you to choose whether or not you'd like to see videos when browsing the categories.

For most members, this won't have much effect, as the vast majority of you simply use the "What's new" link to find all the new posts. That hasn't changed.

Any comments, ideas or suggestions are welcome.

The "Railfan Hotspots" category had kind of lost it's way over the years. It was intended as a place to find out local info for railfanning. Unfortunately, a lot of members didn't really understand that, and it ended up being mostly videos.

I created a single "Railfan Hotspots" forum in the General Discussion category for the few posts that provide local railfan info, and dispersed the videos the appropriate categories.
