Having difficulty sending e-mail to the site?

The tradition of issuing railroad passes goes back over 150 years, when, in an effort to endear themselves to various public and regulatory officials, drum up business, or simply make things easier for their employees, railroads gave out passes good for travel over the road, subject to various conditions. Model railroaders have adopted this tradition as well, but as a "souvenier" or friendship-building effort, instead of trying to drum up traffic. With the development of the internet, a new version of this tradition has appeared - the electronic rail pass, or "e-pass". Model railroad web sites exchange these passes, and in the process, restore some of the original purpose - to drum up (web site) traffic. This directory of P-FMSIG member railroads is intended to serve as a central point to request e-passes from all model railroads in the group. While at this point only a few are participating, more are expected to join in the near future.

Interested in creating your own e-pass?
