I agree that you put it in the correct sub-forum, Bob, but Dave did have a link to video! :laugh:

But nobody said we have to read only one news source! :smilie_daumenpos:

I think more look at the Union Station then North America forum.

And the North American forum is to " Discuss Canadian and American Prototype railways."

Prototype means a first, typical or preliminary model of something, especially a machine, from which other forms are developed or copied.

Therefor, I would think that Union Station is the place for this thread. :cool::cool:

But I see that most of the threads posted in that forum have nothing to do with the, Discuss Canadian and American Prototype railways.

I guess that the Discuss Canadian and American Prototype railways should be excluded from the title of that forum.

As very little is posted about any prototypes. :smokin:

Hey Big Ed :smilie_daumenpos:

Using the definition "typical", I would think that would apply to what we see in railroads today, having been derived from the original. Therefore "North America" refers to today's trains.

Also, "Union Station" specifically says "off-topic discussions". The topic of this forum is trains, so trains don't belong in Union Station.

Just jerking your chain, Ed! LOL :smilie_auslachen:

Well now we have a dilemma.

Your right about Union Station, but the way it is worded I think I am right about the North America forum.

We have to have a whole new forum added.:D

why don't we just ask the super mods to change the
"Discuss Canadian and American Prototype railways"
to
"Discuss Canadian and American Real railways"
or
"Discuss Canadian and American full size railways"

Ed, I know what you mean about the word Prototype.
Many people use it to mean real railroad verses model railroad.
