Default Handicapped /Disabled Model Railroaders

My name is Scott and I am forming a online group for Disabled and Handicaped Model Railroaders, This forum will cover a number of subjects regarding challenges and ways to overcome them to those that are physically mentally or otherwise challenged, We already have approx 50 people signed up for the group from all over the world , but mainly in the US. I invite all those that are interested to contact me at stels5nc@gmail.com and let me know so I may put you on the list.

The group will be on this type of format , I was originally looking at Yahoo but don't want to get into monitoring it for junk mail etc. I use this format on a MS forum that I use and find it much better.

I look forward to hearing from you and also anyone that may not be disabled but feel they may have some knowledge that would be helpful to the group.

Good luck!

When you say you don't want to use Yahoo, are you talking about emails or forums/groups? There are lots of train-oriented groups on Yahoo. I have never seen a problem with junk mail - I presume that is taken care of by monitoring who joins the group. But hey, go with what you feel is best!

Good luck!
I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
