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: Before I can add more photos, I must revamp all the pages. As of Sep 13, all the EMD, GE and Scenic Gallery pages have been revised and upgraded. Also added new repaint dates to many Paint Rosters. Model pages will be updated with currently available models as I have time and info. All old model pages are gone due to outdated info. I'm clearing out the clutter!

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. If you have good quality roster photos of at least 1000pixels wide, you can still submit them. I still see the CRCyc as 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.
