    Here's the url without the forum's automated shortening:

    PHP Code:
    www.railroadforums.com/forum/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=
    (It's not actually PHP code, that's just a trick to prevent the forum from truncating the url.)

    Sweet. Added it to my my.yahoo.com page. Now I'll be able to look at RRF stuff at work.

    It's the same things your whole life. "Clean up your room!", "Stand up straight!", "Pick up your feet!", "Take it like a man!", "Be nice to your sister!", "Don't mix beer and wine, EVER!" Oh yeah, "Don't drive on the railroad tracks!"

    The new feed will make this topic a lot more useful. Now you can essentially check it all day long, via your RSS reader.

    Hopefully that will make "Heads Up!" a lot more useful, and also encourage members to post more info here. If the topic becomes popular I may break the categories out into regions, such as West Coast, Midwest, East Coast, but it's too early for that.

    I think that would be a good idea, splitting the areas (West Coast, Mid west, and however you would want to slpit up the east coast)

    I belive this is a great idea, as it kinda feels strang to read that there's a UP busniness train in Indiana (for instance), and your in California. What can you do? If you start such things as topic's for Union Pacific's Heritage Units I would gladly contribute.

    Just me, still all together is a wonderful site. And this new update part is great!


    Thanks again,

    Alex
