Over the past six months we have updated the look and navigation to our web site content. 
Some of the changes are two new photo viewing tools. Each is a little different in the way you can locate and select images.

Another new feature is the detail listing of steam engines in the roster section. This was only possible before by downloading and file then using Excel.

The Company Store has been improved. It now has a cleaner and easier way to view lists all of our items for sale. 

This new News Section on the Home Page is now automated. Authorized members can add news items without any knowledge of HTML or other web technology.
