Re: Help Finding Large Layout SIG

Douglas Harding

John, SIG, ie Special Interest Group, is a NMRA term/phrase. There is an application and guidelines through the NMRA for becoming a SIG. Yahoo Groups are an entirely different animal, so to speak. Some of the NMRA SIGs do have similar named Yahoo Groups. Both the Layout Design SIG or LDSIG and the Operations SIG or OPSIG have Yahoo Groups, but they are not SIGs. By the way neither requires you to be a SIG member to participate in their Yahoo Group.


I think what you are asking about are Yahoo Groups, ie email exchanges like the Steam Era Freight Car Group STMFC where this thread appears, and not SIGs. To find a Yahoo Group you need to go Yahoo’s website and search under their Groups listings.
