The CRCyc slowly is coming
back to life!

It has been a long, emotional road since my father passed away a few years ago, but I'm slowly returning to the hobby. I'm working from the ground up to improve the website and return it to its former glory days. It will be a large undertaking. I ask for your patience.

PHASE I - Current
Upgraded Pages: As of Sep 28, ALL the Locomotive and Scenic Gallery pages have been cleaned up and have the revised look. I'm working through the Rolling Stock section now and hope to finish the larger thumbnails and pop-up photos soon. Paint Rosters are being updated as well. Modeling pages will be revised asap.

New Photos: A new scanner is on the horizon, so I can finally scan my photos and slides, which I haven't done since 2001! Bigger, better photos. Have good roster photos of at least 1000pixels wide? You can gladly submit them. The CRCyc is a community effort. Just send me an email.

CRCyc Blog: A new blog is coming. I'm excited about this. (I've been blogging for several years about my miniature wargaming hobby.) Look for info soon.
