Chat Rooms and Forums

On June 27, 2000 a terrible calamity occurred in Large Scale CyberSpace. Large Scale On Line became Large Scale Off Line. Gone, Bye-Bye, History. The immediate survey of the devastated cyber landscape was grim at first, but then miraculously, new life appeared amid the rubble and wreckage. New forums and chats popped up seemingly from nowhere.

After just two days, there were more places to exchange information and chat then ever before. Only time will tell which of these sites will attract attention and survive, but in my book, the more the merrier. Competition is good.

What follows is a list of the sites that I've found so far with a short description of what's there and what may come in the future.

  • Public Forums
    • TrainWeb has a new forum is a UBB format and has a large scale section, curiously separated from the rest of the model railroad forums. The new forum is at TrainWeb RailForum.
    • TrainWeb has a second set of forums using a different format.
    • Fine Scale Railroader Magazine has created Fine Scale On Line. This is another indented list that came to line on June 29.
    • Large Scale Central popped up from nowhere. This is another UBB like site created by Bob McCown. It is also subdivided into topics.
    • myLargeScale.com is a new site that is intended to grow to be something like LSOL was. For a few days, this board was hosted on the Utah GRS site.
    • TrainBoard.com is a UBB format general railroading forum, but there are model railroad boards for most scales.
    • Large Trains On Line is yet another forum. This one appears to use a custom forum format.
    • THE GAUGE - Chat Forum seems to be related mostly to "O" Scale trains.
  • Manufacturer's Forums
    • The AristoCraft Forum has been around for awhile. It uses the UBB format. This forum is hosted on the AristoCraft web site and is reasonably restricted to anything AristoCraft related. Go here to communicate directly with AristoCraft.
    • The Bachmann Forum is an indented list type format. The forum is hosted by Bachmann Trains on their web site and is reasonably restricted to anything Bachmann related. Go here to communicate with the Bachmann himself.
  • Public Chat Rooms
    • Large Scale Central has established a chat room with some of the old LSOL look and feel. This is the most active of the chat rooms.
    • myLargeScale has established a chat room based on some chat software that I've not seen before.
    • TrainWeb has a real time chat room also. This one is Java powered and I haven't got it working on my Mac yet. There are actually several chat rooms there, each with a different railroad related subject.
    • Large Trains On Line has another LSOL style chat room. This one has a spelling checker.
  • Email Lists
    • You can subscribe to the Big Trains List by typing the work subscribe in the body of the email message. You will receive a couple of more emails to verify that you actually want to be on the list and that you have supplied a good email address.....then stand back and watch your mailbox fill up.
