I finally got one section of my site done, and that would be Windham, NH under the M&L Branch... Check that area out and imagine every town being presented the same way... How do you like it? How easy is the website to use? Is there anything which should be added? So rate my website on a scale from 1-5, with one being the worst and five being the best... I think it is a lot better than the thread I had before :)

Also, please do not go and give me a one just because most pages are still empty, this is going to take a while to complete, LOL ;)

Here it is: http://www.rememberthebmrr.info/

I give you a four for formatting and the content that is already there. A good site doesn't just appear, it evolves. If you stick with this one it will be an excellent historical document of your railroad. More photos and facts and you'll easily reach a five in my book.

Thanks very much for the link to my site. Just so you know, I'd decided on a four before I got to your offsite links.

Best

Thank you for the feedback :)

I changed how the pictures are formatted... I am no longer hosting them on the MTF but rather Photobucket, that way they can be 1000x750...

Anyways, can someone go to my site and see if they get an error and then the page does not load? There is something wrong with www.sitemeter.com and because that is the counter I am using on my website my IE does not like it... Before I take it down though (because it is an excellent counter), I want to make sure that it is just not my stupid computer ;)

Works fine here. Looks a lot different then last time I
looked at it though (color scheme, etc.). But sitemeter
counter is there & (I guess) working.

Could I make one small suggestion?
You might want to consider adding a target=_blank to the
links that leave your site.. (for example salemdepotstation.com and windhamrailtrail.org)...
just a friendly suggestion though.
I think your site is great - good content, sharing info, very nice!

Looks good, B&M :thumbsup:

I'm sure with time it will be great!! These things are very time consuming, so a little at a time and before you know it... you're one of the big dogs:laugh:

Keep up the good work, both here and at your new project :D

I think it's great for what it is now, and as mentioned it will evolve. There's a lot of information that's easy to access, and the photo links are great.

Good job, and keep working on it!

I found out today that you can link to different content boxes (towns/cities in my case) on a page... Now I have a list of all the towns and cities which the line went through at the top of the page, and people can click on them and travel down to a certain section instantly... This will help as each section becomes the size of a short novel :laugh:

I went up to Manchester yesterday to take some pictures of the old line... Probably the star of the segment is the Cohas Brook trestle...

My website is going to be changing its address, as soon as I get everything all copied over (almost done)... I like the new design better, and the domain name is shorter that "boston-and-maine" ;)

HA! I can't blame you at all.
I can get by with html, but haven't learned the css too well.
(nor do I plan too).

Still.. your site looks really nice. I do admire you for taking
the time to compile the information and making it available.

Don't get me started, but back in the old days of the internet
websites had content and info.. sites still do, but they are
getting fewer and further between. Keep up the good work.
