sd80mac and SST:
Since I last posted about the RHI snow incident I found a third group of discussion in the Amtrak
Forum under "Amtrak Empire Service (NYS) Improvements Albany-Buffalo" (pages 63-64)
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The suggestion I made - and again it was ONLY A SUGGESTION - was for all the posts about what
happened at RHI to be together in one place - but in at least the Amtrak and NYS Railfan Forums
as it is now for added exposure to users. The title "Snow Surprise...Amtrak at Rhinecliff" is the
best title. Just add the exact date that this happened and the train number if one knows...
I learned something that I found to be very interesting from this in that there are Railroad.net
members who do not look in some other forums let alone ever post in them.
I have been a member here for just over 12 years and there are forums I rarely look in and for
that matter have never posted in or had specific reason to do so. For me it is on a "traffic" basis.
I look at the Passenger Rail forums most often and least the slower forums without new posts.
One of the best benefits of Railroad.net membership is having this wealth of information at your
service when one may need it. I am just surprised that some members do not - or not wish to -
look at other forums when the need arises.
With the Kinzua Bridge topic I pointed out that geographically the location was in Pennsylvania.
What SST posted was really good - it answered many questions I had about the Bridge and what
happened there in 2003. Finding earlier topics and information out of the archives did add to the
Kinzua Bridge subject. I later found videos posted at YouTube of Kinzua Bridge,K&K and KBSP.
Back in the early days of my Railroad.net membership there were members that would "direct"
you to the proper forum area especially if you were uncertain where to place a topic or post.
Some of that was subtle or suggestive but were sometimes direct and more stern to newbies.
I am not a moderator nor do I want to be a "back seat driver" here. In this case I only would
like to see topics in their logical places. If Otto or someone in authority says "No" No means No.
Next time I will just ignore what I see to be an obvious error and let someone else in authority
change it since I can not change anything anyway. This is not worth the trouble to me any more.
I am here for the positive - and not negative - and wish to keep it that way...MACTRAXX
