In my early RP days I certainly found this an interesting place to regularly visit back then. Been visiting here and regularly viewing the forums since Jan 2003. Actually I joined a day after David Head who I see is still going strong on here and doing good job. There is still a few other names I see from time to time who now are sort of like old Forum family members. In those early days of RP it was always full of interesting topics in more ways than one. But alas, time has changed near everything around us for us older folk one hardly recognises what is what and it all gets bit harder to grasp with these modern day issues. These latter days/years, one being old school I've become a forum backseat passenger mostly just viewing the forums now. Sadly I do miss the old rail systems, all now long gone. Nowadays I suppose this old fart is drifting into oblivion so to speak, but the forums are still nice to occasionally come and check them out.Trust that you are well John.
Ya all have a good one.
I, being old school rail, too, I share your views. I find that I don't even speak the language of some of the current crop of posters or so called rail 'managers' these days.
My signature line says it all for me:
I miss the railway that I started out in and the Comrades that I met along the way but I don't miss the railway as it is today.
