"After clicking on the link to the map look below the infield search bar for a 'balloon' icon similar to the majority of those on the map. If you hover above this icon it will say 'Add Marker'"

I have used 3 different browsers and have never been able to find "a 'balloon' icon similar to the majority of those on the map."  Also, not sure what an "infield search bar" is.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Tom, here are a few screen shots if that helps.

Thank you.

All:

I've started a map that will 'pin' the location of RailPro individual users and groups. Reply here with your location (general city, not necessarily a specific address) and I'll get you added to the list. Feel free to provide contact information if you wish.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YT5ly1cHgxnzDfFRXGn3sizmlP4&usp=sharing

After clicking on the link to the map look below the infield search bar for a 'balloon' icon similar to the majority of those on the map. If you hover above this icon it will say 'Add Marker'

Click this 'Add Marker' icon

You pointer will turn to cross hairs

Move the cross hairs to your location and click

A new marker will be placed and a dialogue box will appear with 'Point XX' in the top field.

Replace this 'Point XX' with your screen name

Add any additional information in the lower field such as group, your railroad, contact info, etc.

Click SAVE

It doesn’t seem to be working for me. I’d like a point put at San Diego Ca. 92101. however I’llbe moving to Jacksonville North Carolina in the fall. So either location will be fine by me.

It opened in the google maps application and nothing showed up, so i forced it to open in a browser window, and it showed everyone’s points, but it would not allow me to add anything. Strange.

Thanks!

I don't think these issues used to exist. I think something may have changed in google and the link works but not entirely.

Alan,

Great Website for your railroad. I've been to the Orrville Depot several times. Near Thanksgiving Weekend they always have an open house, along with open houses for several other area model railroads. Check out the "Route 30 express". Most likely will be cancelled this year :(   I grew up about two miles from the Pennsylvania yard and Roundhouse in Crestline, Ohio. Saw it decline and then be torn down. The yard became a roadrailer facility for a while, now is a large grain loading facility. Usually see about 20 -40 covered hoppers on the tracks. As a side note, we also lived in Marlette Michigan for a couple years in the 80s when I was a driver for Schwan Foods. Was back up there last July on vacation. Small World!
