Where’s the beef?

I’m personally interested in modeling so it looks like it is really falling in limbo. Yes, I’m interested in the history (particularly- steam focus) and I know that has declined since 1953 <g>
So before every one climbs my back and wants to castigate me for my posting --- I have done a bit in past years.
Based on data it does appear the Fallen Flag is falling. Interest is losing ground.
So.... anyone? Is there secret group,
STILL modeling the Murphy Branch June, 1942.
I look forward to every post on these lists. My research is
taking a lot of time and nothing is really ready to post/comment

Personally I think most people that really build from scratch or care about prototype specific models anymore, like the old days before RTR items were so available, are old school and not so internet savoy. They can do the internet but don't get satisfaction from it like they do from creating instead of the "look at me" mentality of today. They usual get eaten alive by the trolls because they are legitmently interested in sharing info and fellowship instead of criticizing/attacking and then hiding behind a username. Also with life obligations (Family, making a living, aging) find that posting and following the internet very time consuming and taking time away from life's important issues. Just my 2 cents...
