Conrail Modeler's Web Site

Postby M.R. Snell » Wed Feb 08, 2006 8:23 pm

After years of frustration at trying to find the things I've needed to model Wes Reminder & myself are putting together a Conrail Modelers Resource website. The goal is to provide Conrail modelers with a one stop center to find out about products & get prototype reference information useful to modeling.

This is a dual site, with one part being model photos available to the public & the other being a resource site for modelers which will require a free membership through Yahoo Groups.

Currently on the membership site are:

-An album of signs which can be used on your layouts
-An album of prototype weathering photos
-An album of terminal details
-An album of trackside details
-An album of papergoods which relate to operting your layout
-Custom decal information
-Matrixes of decals, parts, paints, paint schemes
-An album for modeling articles
-A forum group devoted to Conrail modleing (& prototype) information

This will also be the home of the 2006 OCS modeling project.

This will only be as good & useful as everyone's involvement so I invite everyone to take a look, sign up, & join in. (New registrations are approved within 24 hours.) We're just getting started & new material is being added daily so hop on board & add some of your own!



Have a great day!

Great sites Matt! Loving them! They've really helped me with my Conrail themed layout, or at least they will. :-D

It's 4 years later, so I'm not overly shocked.......
