One thought, since Gerry has been moving locomotive projects into a separate heading for quick reference, would it maybe make sense to have one pre-ordained for just such a purpose, and then instead merely move non-locomotive topics out?
, I only move the Locos into that section when the thread is 'dead' Jeff, i.e. the item becomes an archive for all to view.
This usually means that I trawl from last year post in The Loco Shed (might be as far back as page 17 in MM) then come forward to around January of year in question which usually means Page 5/6 in MM.
I wouldn't want to have all Locos including current items therein as that would mean anyone would be able update the Loco Shed section - it ceasing to be an archive.
Many Locos in MM appear in threads that also include a layout build so the thread gets archived in The Loco Shed & Virtual Exhibition. Nothing is ever straight forward.
The reason that Emrys added the two sections VE & LS was to give Gnatterboxers & casual visitors the ability to view Layouts and Locos easily without having to trawl through the now 61 pages of Gn15 Modelling Matters.
Perhaps I should re-iterate that only Gn15 items appear in these archives, after all that was the original concept of Gn15.info.
