both pointless and highly annoying. Or is it just me?


I don't think any one would describe you as "pointless and highly annoying" Ian.   ;)

Clearly you have never met  my co-workers :P

Anyway this is what I see more often than not when accessing the site (usually after a delay of quite a few seconds):



It's their prerogative if they want to show more ads of course, but it would help if there's something else to see... Anyway from this thread I understand it's a known issue and hopefully will be resolved.

The "problem" with RMWeb is the sheer number of very knowledgeable people who use it.

That may well be true John but too often I have seen people shot down, ridiculed, posts deleted etc if their knowledge isn't up to a certain standard on RMWeb. There's absolutely no need for that. I avoid the place unless someone posts a link on here to something which I may find useful. Or if I want to annoy someone of course as they bite so easily over there  >:D

If I wanted to know which style of lamp irons were used on an 1897 vintage Furness Railway kettle, someone there would probably have the answer.

Unlikely - the FR didn't get any new locos in 1897. However, the 1896 Sharp Stewart built K2s (Larger Seagulls) appear, from one photo, to have the type of lamp irons where the bracket is on the back of the lamp.
 :P

Going off-topic (hey it's my thread), am I the only one who keeps reading "BRB" as "British Railways Board"?

I can see why, without context it made little sense! Secret code for us cyclists ;D

RMWeb is basically only viewable with an armada of adblockers set to full block, even then that doesn't deal with the frequent server issues that now seem to plague it.

People keep posting on RMWeb about slow performance and 'What is with all the adverts?' type questions but the threads are quickly locked and any mention of using adblockers even just to make the site actually readable gets quickly leapt upon by the Management.

I think I will be spending more time here in the future.  Any site that refuses access to me because I have an adblocker will no longer get my custom.

They don’t mind you using an ad blocker, they don’t want you telling everyone to use ad blockers. Hardly unreasonable.
