    Howdy folks,

    As I've done more personal research in the passenger car and train area, it seems to me that we could organize that information a bit better.

    Currently we have cars, whether passenger or freight organized as separate subforums. We don't have any structure for trains that used the equipment. So, I am wondering if it would make sense to add a Trains subforum either as a separate subforum or as part of the Divisions. The question then becomes, do you associate trains with divisions or would you rather see a Trains section, subdivided into Freight, Passenger, and Other?

    Best regards,

    I have thought about one element of this question from time to time. I grew up in St. Louis and so I tend to think of the Frisco as a Midwestern operation. However, I am sure that members living in (say) Birmingham think of it as a southern road. Same distinction for people living in Oklahoma or Memphis or Kansas City or wherever. That said, when I see a picture of a train, I don't find it any more or less interesting because of the location in which the picture was taken, so I'd say just go with "trains" as a category.

    If it was up to me I would put the "Modeling" above the "Interchange"
