The OTOL staff has decided to make some changes regarding how we handle trip reports. Over the most recent years, we have not received as many submissions as we used to, so we felt it would be prudent to move the feature here to the Forums rather than continuing to post new reports on our sister static website.
The website will continue to host previous trip reports submitted up to and including the year 2012. Reports submitted from 2013 onward can be posted in this Forum. In tandem with that change, my Fest trip reports will also now be posted here in their entirety rather than on the website, starting with our RailFests from that year.
Your trip reports are still and always wanted! Please share your experiences with us as you travel anywhere by trains, long or short trips. REMEMBER, trip reports are welcome from everyone who has taken a trip by train and wishes to share it. I realize that many of the entries there are my reports from various group RailFests we have held over the years. But this is YOUR board and we want to hear from YOU! I just ask a favor of you, and that is to please proofread your work for spelling and grammar errors before posting your report on the board. Having a lot of mistakes takes away from the readers' enjoyment of your work. There are many spelling/grammar checkers out there, and also the newer versions of the various operating systems have them built in.
We hope you enjoy the changes!
