To this list, I want to make a list of the video collections of the users that may or may not be uploaded on this site...it can be offsites like dailymotion and youtube, or whereever you have them located. Please reply to this message with the link to your personal video gallery if you have one. Patrick actually helped with this idea. Thanks.

This site just started, and may be good if they get more members.
It is a Wisconsin Railfan board.
