    TrainBoard is a place where we try to get away from the world's hiccups for a few minutes. Together we share the joys, and benefits of the various aspects which these railroad hobbies offer to us. In order to help accomplish this goal, here are a few things we wish to avoid, which can cause things to quickly go sour. Staff will swiftly edit anything, or delete entirely, messages straying into:

    * Politics

    * Profanity

    * Race

    * Religion

    * Sex

    * Sexual Orientation


    Please, do not make any posts, or originate any topics concerning:

    > Deliberately removing items from any railroad property without appropriate permission;

    > Promotion of "tagging" (vandalism);

    > Promotion of "train hopping";

    > Promotion of deliberate trespassing onto any railroad property.

    TrainBoard does not condone or support these actions! These activities can be dangerous, and are ALL are ILLEGAL. Such messages or topics will be removed, and the poster(s) may be moderated or banned.


    There may be a rare occasion, where an exception is made. Such as discussion of Pullman Porters, or labor used to build early railroads. But only as long as kept strictly within historical context.

    As much as humanly possible, please stay on topic and use the appropriate Forum for your discussions. It is human nature than on occasion people might wander off course a bit. It happens! Do NOT become upset that your thread has been "hijacked", etc. Do not make an angry post. (You might end up being the one edited or moderated.) Show a little sense of humor, have some patience and act with maturity! If you feel there is truly a concern, please contact TrainBoard Staff, privately.

    We do have a strictly 'off topic' area available: "The Cattle Car." It's use still requires the same topic exclusions named above.

    TrainBoard management reserves the right to:

    * Change the status of any membership;

    * Make any topic or post moves, edits or deletions as deemed necessary; order to keep life here as peaceful as possible.

    Thank you for your understanding. :) ;)

    Since TrainBoard's creation, the landscape of the internet has evolved greatly. New social media platforms, fundraising platforms, platforms that every day people can leverage to add supplemental income have all come into existence. Income incentives from platforms such as YouTube require efforts and behaviors to obtain, behaviors that manifest in other areas of the internet, including TrainBoard.

    TrainBoard encourages members to share interesting railroad related content from YouTube or other media sites. However, we reserve the right to remove postings that appear to be done for the sole purpose of solicitation of views, clicks or subscribers from our members. At TrainBoard, we're all about sharing content, accomplishments, ideas, asking questions and getting answers. This is what makes TrainBoard a great place to hang out! Having said that, dropping YouTube posts without participating in the discussions that follow, or posts that encourage members to enter into a subscription may be interpreted as click harvesting or solicitation posts subject to removal.

    Thank you!! (y)
