Note: As of December 2, 2005 "For Sale" or "Wanted" advertisements are allowed on Fridays only. These ads must be railroad-related in nature and include books, magazines, timetables, camera equipment, lanterns, furniture, etc. For specific rules, please visit the Files section of the group and look for a folder entitled "NWR Admin" with a text file called "NWR Classified Ad Guidelines". Any questions on what items are appropriate, please contact the moderator offline.

Also, please note, as of January 6, 2006, a new NWR Railroad & Railfan Online Resources database is available under the "Database" link. This is a resource for all NWR members. If you have a web site to add to the database, please contact the moderator offline.
