This is the only forum that I currently post on but I do visit other O Gauge forums to see what else is happening in the world of electric trains. I still check out OGR even though they sent me packing without an explanation. I get over to MTJ every now & then to see what the grumpy old men have to complain about. CTT is pretty much quiet anymore, not much happening over there. The new forum, OGF has a few interesting posts but it is more like a social gathering than a information source. Lately they seem to have joined the MTJ mode of grumpy old men postings.

Are there any other O Gauge forums worth visiting ?

Who on this forum was on the original O Gauge forum, many, many years ago, the AOL electric train forum. That was a ruff and tumble forum, you had to have very thick skin to survive there. Alan Miller of OGR fame was a moderator or referee for awhile. I am guessing a lot of the AOL posters back then have passed on to the great train station in the sky.

The Cornerfield Layout videos were the best part of the OGF, one of the main reasons that I stopped by OGF. To bad they and the moderators of OGF had a falling out.

As I recall Frank Razz? used to do a lot of the grilling
Yep, Frank Razzagone and Randy Tegnazian were our designated grillers for Bar-B-Q's at York. We were a group known as the TOOG's that was formed by Tony Lash. There were 22 members that were primarily MTH operators, kind of a mini-forum on AOL. Occasionally some of us would get together at Tony's business to operate his layout and just have a good time.

I post here and I post at OGF, There are posters I enjoy at both places.I don't post at OGR because Rich banned me many years ago and in retrospect I probably deserved it.
.
My favorite forum of all time was "The O Gauge Hobbyist" started by my buddy frank53 you could say anything you wanted there. A lot of people found Frank hard to take but I loved the guy and he was a hell of a modeler.

I enjoy threads about layout building,scenery work and structure building,all seem to be in short supply these days.

All I know is after 63 years on the planet I've discovered everyone can be an A hole in their own way and likewise everyone has redeeming qualities if you look hard enough.Besides if we all stopped talking to A holes we'd be pretty lonely especially my wife.;)
Yep, I was a member of the O Gauge Hobbyist Forum. It was a terrific forum. I won one of Frank53's buildings from his layout in a contest.

well i am glad to know i am not the only one banned from OGR for no reason, other than maybe someone was having an unruly hair day....?
Yep, I was given the boot over a year ago for no apparent reason. I am guessing since I was not a subscriber to any of their offerings or don't have a magazine subscription that was the reason.

Jeepers, I started this thread to see if there were any other forums that I was unaware of. It did lead to some very interesting discussions in regards to the forums that I do visit. Bottom line is that there are not very many forums for O gauge electric trains.
