I did grab the millionth; I was kind of stuck; I had to go out in the next five minutes, and I didn't want to miss the MILEPOST!

I think I have some confetti left over from a wedding somewhere....... :0

Too bad 900,000 of the posts are in The Honorary Nonsense 7277 Sideswipe Where's Cruiser Thread!

Great observation thirdrail. I put some posts in that thread.

Thanks to John Stewart for starting the original RAILROAD.NET, and thanks to Mike Roque who helped take the reigns after John transferred the domain to us. Wishing continued success to the new operators!

Congrats to RR.net on the one millionth post; I believe each poster should recieve a monetary stipend; payable, of course, over the next 40 years.... :)

MEC407, not to toot my (our) own horn, but I believe the most active topic/thread on RR.net is the 'CR on the Southern Secondary' thread in the NJ Railfan Forum, with 5162 replies, and 361,442 views as of this date.

Never underestimate the rabid ex-CNJ railfan.... :-)

U missed by a few days. As people say, cue the saying "close but no cigar". Nice to see a million posts. I wasn't here for the origional RR.net. Nice achievement though. Railroaders get a nod for providing good info about rail lines.
