Sightings

I have added a new feature to my web site, a sightings database. For several years I have maintained a database of all the trains I have seen, and now it will be online for everyone to use as a reference. The first place you can see it is on the roster pages for a particular NBSR or NBEC unit. For example, look at recently-departed NBEC 4214. Near the bottom of the page is a list of all the times I have seen the engine, including its location and my comments.


Or look at NBSR 9801. Or any other roster page.

While you're there, notice the login block in the left column. This is to allow you to enter comments on the pages. Feel free to use it, or not!

In the future I hope to open the sightings database up to every sighting I have seen, and I would like to allow you to add your own sightings. Leave a comment if you're interested, or email me at steve@theboykos.com. Let me know what you think of this new feature.

Ahh, this is something that I was planning to create years ago but never got around to doing it :-)

Well, Marcel, feel free to use mine when it is ready. I would appreciate any comments you have on it.
