IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! Read the rules. They are not some legal mumbo jumbo that is there to keep our lawyers happy. They also set the tone and character of the Forum and we all benefit from them. Repeated breaching of the rules may lead your posting privileges being withdrawn.
The forum owners and moderators are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Model Rail Forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
You agree, by your use of the forum, that you will not use Model Rail Forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violates any law.
You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by Model Rail Forum or unless you have obtained written permission to use the copyrighted material by the rightful owner.

Model Rail Forum does not allow the use of advertising in your member name (forum ID). This includes brands and website addresses. Unless with the permission from Model Rail Forum administrators.
Posting of eBay listings (with the intent of promoting a sale) is only allowed in the Model Rail Forum Swap Shop
. Swap Shop topics can only be started by Plus+ members
. Plus+ members may offer model railway related items for sale directly to other members in the Swap Shop area. Selling of any other nature is not allowed in any other part of the forum.
Joining the forum with the sole intent on getting a value of a model you have so that you can sell it is considered as selling. It's not on. If you are not interested in becoming part of the community, then don't sign up.
We are committed to promoting the hobby and we realise that there are other model rail forums, but we see some as competition so we do not allow promotion of other forums or direct linking to other forums in signatures or posts.
We have rules about your signature. Please read them in the section here
We have further guidelines and rules about posting images - notably about the size of posted images. Please read them here
. If you have any complaint or query about these guidelines, then please contact one of the moderators or the forum administrator.
We have a Posting Guidelines topic which expands how these rules are interpreted. It can be found here
