Looks like a Fedex logo or something...very un-railroadistic.







Just kidding Jon. :twisted: :lol:
It does look different. In a good way.

I didn't get it at first either, then I noticed the banner at the top changed.

apologies to the creator; but being the persnickety graphic designer I am. I dislike it as the banner here. Its a nice logo; don't get me wrong but I feel it doesn't fit with the 'flow' of the forum design. further more the egotistical side of me came out and said "I can do better." and so I created ("better" can be up to you guys)

Doesn't look very railroadish, that was the whole point of the new banner. At some point I'm going to redo it in a different color with a transparent background.
