I would like to suggest a forum encyclopaedia, a sort of a-z of how to's (or not in my case)

The idea occurred with cuppas' bowden cables and crank system for points, I thought something like that could be worth preserving for all current and prospective members.  Cant have these admin guys taking things easy now can we  :evil:

Good idea. What about doing it as a wiki? (might make admin a little easier, might not ;) )

Yeah go for it Lawrence!   :thumbsup: :smiley-laughing:  I definitely haven't got time to write out that sort of thing, but I welcome anyone who would do it.

I was thinking of a dedicated section where our esteemed membership could have any deemed worthy "teach ins" stickied, however if zwilnik wants to do a wiki..............  ;D

It would be good to have a model railway photography board, so we can all share and enjoy each others hard work. I personally would suggest an NGF "virtual exhibition". i have picked up so many tips and ideas from other modellers, it could be productive!! Great forum, lets see it grow and fly the flag for our hobby. Ian.

Great idea, i love looking through pictures for inspiration..

I have an idea that would help everybody out at some point.

how about we have a free cycle section?
how it would work is anything you have thats unwanted you can post it in the section and other people can ask for it. FOR FREE!
The only thing the lucky person would pay for is postage.

but you cant ask people for free stuff thats just rude.

i think i have started this with 2 tunnel sections going to member cupoftea  :thumbsup:

it feels good to help a fellow member  :angel:
Thank you very much Sir. The tunnels will be put to good use.

I think the idea of a 'free to a good home' section is a good one. I have helped out a member of this forum with some points i did not need. I guess, from time to time, we all have odd bits that just gather dust.
