That first post under my name was posted by the moderator on my behalf (thanks!), so now it's time for me to introduce myself.

I'm Dave Cantor. I grew up in Everett, Massachusetts, which had a big pile of sulfur at the Monsanto plant which was adjacent to Everett Station, then the northern terminus of the Main Line of the BERy, now the orange line of the MBTA. I've been fascinated with rapid transit and trolley operations, and especially signalling and switching, since my mother took me on the "El" and subway into Boston when I was four years old.

But that was way more than half a century ago.

I'll lurk for a while, and then I'll probably have a few questions for the other old-timers here who remember the trolleys in and around greater Boston.

I originally registered an account on here about a couple weeks ago. When I tried to log in this morning, I couldn't, and then I ran across a thread similar to this one from August 2011 stating that accounts with 0 posts will be pruned. So I had to re-register, and here I am, again.
Proud to be a railfan again!!!

Say something as simple as "new member", or quote my post and leave the rest blank. If you have already posted on the site, no post is necessary here, but feel welcome to post even so.

This is a spam prevention measure to prevent phantom registrations. Thank you for your patronage, and again, feel free to "lurk" as long as you like!
Ok, I'm a new member...

Hello,

Just registered after lurking for a bit. Very informative site. MoPac (Missouri Pacific) is in my blood, Dad worked there, Uncle retired from there, Cousin currently works there (UP), so if there's anything I can help with in relation to MoPac, feel free to contact me and I'll do my best.

Thanks

MPB

Oh, great. Now SOMEONE is going to make a "cake is a lie" joke. Just you watch.

Another new member here. Though I already posted once; started a topic to ask some questions in the "Operations" forum. It said my post needed to be reviewed before going up, so I assume that's either something that happens to new members, or something that happens for new topics in that forum. Dunno how active a poster I'll be, other than occasional questions about developing rail systems for my fictional city project, so I figured I might as well post in here. That said, I've been lurking a bunch since stumbling on this place a couple weeks ago, and will continue to do so; I've already learned more about railroad operations from perusing this site in two weeks than I would normally learn in two years!
