I just noticed that this month (March, 2015) marks my fifteenth anniversary here on Trainboard. Back in 2000, when I joined, I was member #300. I wonder how many of the 299 before me are still here. I know Russ was here before me as it was a post of his on another forum (I'm thinking it was the AOL forum) that got me here. So you guys can blame Russ for my presence. A lot of thngs have changed in those short fifteen years. The Atlas forum is gone. I was with that in all three of its versions and to me the first Atlas forum was the best of the three. Along the way I joined other forums but the Atlas forum and Trainboard were always the top ones. With the demise of the Atlas forum Trainboard is unchallenged as the No.1 forum. Who knows what the next fifteen years will bring. Maybe a new computer cause this thing is really slow by todays standards. As a matter of fact, fifteen years ago I was on a 56K modem on a dial up connection and it was slow then too!
