Model Rail Forum News Feed

What is RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on websites you like. Instead of you having to go to websites to see if they've written a new article or feature, you can use RSS (which stands for Really Simple Syndication) to get them to tell you every time they have something new. A RSS file is a XML (Xtended Markup Language) file that is read through a special reader or add-on to your browser.

Model Rail Forum offers RSS feeds (or channels) for the News section. We might increase the scope of this content if there is a demand.

How can I make use of RSS?
