I am cross-posting this from one of the Bogies threads as I feel this is a useful list of new member websites:

The Great List of Websites is somewhat discombobulated as most of the sites listed were on fotopic. As it is two years old, and many members now have new sites, I'll leave it to RP Members to nominate their favourite sites.

Meanwhile, due the Great List being in a state of disrepair, one lazy Sunday afternoon I trawled through the New Members list right back to the start of 2009 and came up with the following list of member websites, below.

Some of this really intersting stuff, and the prevalence of Youtube points out in large part the future directions for electronically documenting the daily railway and heritage-preservation scene. Heaven help you all if Youtube falls over.  Of course, Fotopic did fall over, and members hurried hither and thither to find new hosting.

For best member website, you may wish to consider one or another of the New Member Websites.

I am cross-posting this from one of the Bogies threads as we feel this is a useful list of new member websites:

The Great List of Websites is somewhat discombobulated and out of date.

Meanwhile, due the Great List being in a state of disrepair, on lazy Sunday afternoons I trawl through the New Members list right back to the start of 2011 and check the list of new member websites, below.

Here are the new member websites from 1 January 2011 to 20 February 2011:


railwayjohn has a website at http://railwaymodel.org/

on page load, a pop-up comes with a offer of a free report on  "7 Model Train Mistakes To Avoid"

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/john-popup.jpg[/img]

without the popup, the site looks like so:

dammie has a website at http://www.itrainspotter.com/

in Dutch and English, and its The trainspotting app for the iPhone

Mixy has a website at http://www.scarm.info/index_bg.html

on page load, you will see the site is in Bulgarian

with Google Translate the site looks like so: (and appears to be railway layout modelling sofware with translation capacity)

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/scarm1.jpg[/img]


Jeffro656 has a website at http://www.trainsphotos.com/

which has  quite an extensive menu for all the galleries below the top banner, and a slideshow below that. Lots of Australian coverage.

Hi All
With Fotopic currently out, I have been updating my RailWA Flickr Page with about 200+ photos added over the last few days, some older, some newer photos.

Hi Hendo, this thread is a great idea Idea

Regrettably I have never quite gotten around to classifying & sorting my Photobucket gallery (on the ever-growing list of things to do Rolling Eyes ), but one of my chiefest interests is Railway Archaeology, and stemming from that, Infrastructure & Signalling. Residing as I do in NSW, and close to (but not in) Sydney, of course most of my pix represent those areas. Most (but not all) pix are of something rail-related.

If you would like to list my site, please list it under your "awaiting categorization" section for now.

Of course, this is good heads-up for me to give over procrastinating, and finally start to sort my gallery!
"Back on 9/5/09, I"


******* BREAKING NEWS *******

I am currently in the process of adding "tags" to my Photobucket gallery, which should make things easier to find for those who might be looking for specific things 8)
"More recently on 4/12/09, I"

******* MORE BREAKING NEWS ********

The reality is that with Photobucket, the whole tagging routine is regrettably finite - as in you can't have more than 3,500 tags, even if you do have the pay-for-it version Evil or Very Mad

But I have started to create sub-albums (to make things easier to find, for myself as much as anyone else), classified alpha-by-location for the time being.

At the time of posting, this is a work in progress; some done already, many more to do Smile

With my fotopic site along with others not available i have started a Flickr account as time and space permits i will be adding the older shots. here is the basic link for the site .

Done the same myself, as with the unfortunate demise of Fotopic at the moment, I'll have to put my galleries back up online again... Not looking forward to that! For now, I'm just putting new galleries online basically as I take them, the old galleries will come later.

(I've also got a Photobucket account and looking at building my own gallery domain now. Hopefully and ideally, Fotopic will just come back online, business as usual and we'll be back up and running again. One can dream, right? Smile )

As per my post in my own thread here: Wolfpac's Fotopic Gallery thread... I've launched my own personal photo gallery at:

WolfpacFotos.com

and the accompanying Blog at:

WolfpacFotos.com Blog

Both are still in the process of being updated and content is being put on bit by bit.

I'll still update my Flickr website with new galleries from Jan 2011 onwards, but all the old Fotopic gallery content will be uploaded to my WolfpacFotos.com site.

Enjoy!

My main sorting out into various sub-albums is done now; what I'm currently up to is a few tweaks here & there.

Meanwhile, due the Great List being in a state of disrepair, on lazy whatever afternoons I trawl through the New Members list right back to the start of 2011 and check the list of new member websites, below. So today, I took up the new members list from 2011, and we'll add a few more albums today as well.

Here are the new member websites from 11 April to 29 May 2011:

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/metrofit.jpg[/img]

And that's the sum of the new member websites for 6 weeks; 1450 users have joined us since 1 January 2011; for those six weeks, from April 11, all the other new member sites are for replica watches, washing machines, dress your Barbie dolls and so forth.

Hi everyone,

With the demise of Fotopic I have moved to Picasa. However rather than upload what was previously online I have been uploading a whole load of stuff that I had always intended to upload!
Nothing that was previously online is back up as yet!
Here is the link:

http://picasaweb.google.com/114254046411023000961

Items of interest for Tasmanians plus some Victorian images.
More images to come, but a lot of prints remain to be scanned.

I am cross-posting this from one of the Bogies threads as we feel this is a useful list of new member websites:

The Great List of Websites is somewhat discombobulated and out of date.

Meanwhile, due the Great List being in a state of disrepair, on lazy whatever dayze I trawl through the New Members list right back to the start of 2011 and check the list of new member websites, below. So today, I took up the new members list from the last time I posted here (24 July) (we now have 2250 new members for 2011)  ...  of course there are many who join, never post, but provide a link to their website in their profile, all of which have nothing to do with trains, railway operations nor modelling. Think mugshots, dressing up dolls and this month, flooded basements ... my, my, whatever will they think of next?

Here are the new member websites from 24 July to 6 September:

rlxsafety, a level crossings safety expert, has a website at http://www.rlxsafety.com/

on page load, you see some gob-smacking photos and there is an challenging multimedia page of videos for rail safety. There are some interesting documents in publications, I perused a rather fulsome analysis of the LX trilogy of fatalities at Bentleigh, Vic.

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/rlxsafety.jpg[/img]

rlxsafety also has a newsletter on site. Latest newsletter has a link to the International Rail Safety Conference, which takes place in Melbourne, 16-21 October. Some seldom discussed topics are listed in the abstracts for the conference sessions. JR East and their risk policy was thoughtful reading; all those level crossings and a social value analysis. I digress, scuza mia. Hey, no scuzi, it gets more interesting. Newsletter also has analysis and listing of Multiple RLX Fatality Coronial Inquests 2011-2012. Interesting website, one to bookmark and visit from time to time.

That's it, only one new member website for all that time.


On to another "sites" aspect,we update the great list of blogs as well

rpaaron has a blog called UP/BNSF Steino Subdivision which is found at http://steinosub.blogspot.com/

Union Pacific/BNSF Modern Image layout in N Scale, 2 level in a single car garage:

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/steinosub.jpg[/img]

The maps of the layout are somewhat novel, as are the progressive photographs of work on the levels.  

Greensleeves has a blog on models at http://greensleeves94models.blogspot.com/

I note blogs now have scripts for slideshows in the colums, which are rather neato, and I can sit and watch for a while.

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/greensleeves.jpg[/img]

Anyway, I was just scrolling down and looking at some of the pics and I thought to myself, 'that's a rather grotty looking X class there', and I looked in the background and saw some weathered grainys, and I pulled up and thought, well, that has to be a compliment to the modeller, for weathering is a rather precise art, as illustrated by this photo from the slideshow:



Oh yea, I too have spent time over rusted wagons using the colour picker and difference clouds in Photoshop.

Greensleeves, via the blogs thread, drew our attention to a new blog, SEM VQCX to AQCY conversion: A how to guide found at http://greensleeves94-aqcy-conversion.blogspot.com/

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/brakegear.jpg[/img]

A helpful conversion guide.

DQ2004 has a blog over at http://www.futuretransporttas.org/ with rather up to date content and press releases called Future Transport Tasmania

[img]http://www.saieditor.com/2011/bogies/futuretas.jpg[/img]

Interesting collection of Media Releases, blog posts and articles, not all of which are about Tasmania.

And that's it for tonight.
  djukinX1016 Deputy Commissioner

Around 30+ photos added covering Tasmania and New South Wales, from Newcastle/ Werris Creek/ Ben Bullen and points in between:
  Nipper Junior Train Controller

Location: Port Pirie

While I am certainly no photographer, I have been uploading some pictures to Flickr if anyone is interested, mainly of rollingstock.  There may be something there that could be of assistance to modellers.

As another Fotopic victim, I now have photos all over the place - I am trying to bring any new stuff together though on my blog - http://blog.mindless.info/

It's not exclusively rail, but the vast majority is expected to be going forward. Mainly NSW with a bit of KiwiRail sprinkled on top.
