I wonder if anyone knows what percentage
"model railroaders" are prototype modelers?
Acording to the editorial in the latest MR, 10% of layouts are strictly
prototype, 40 % are freelance and 50% are protoype-based with "flexibility."

As to the comments on F&SM and Malcom Furlough. Who cares? I thought that
model railroading was a big tent and if you didn't like some aspect of it, you
could just ignore it. We talk about freight cars to the nth degree, aren't
others allowed to pursue their interests, whether we like them or not, to the
same extent? We "prototype" modelers have been called snobs before. The sorts
of messages being posted here do nothing to alleviate that appellation. Let's
get back to rivets!
