    Wrong requirements

    These don't look like Railroading requirements! I think somehow the Radio ones are here by mistake. -EagleForumFan November 10, 2008

    Thank you for the catch! Fixed now! — Milominderbinder2 (Sysop) 15:57, November 10, 2008 (EST)

    Niles Canyon Railway resources

    The Niles Canyon Railway is posting some study guides for some requirements on their website, http://www.ncry.org/rrmb.htm. You may post some links to them here (perhaps requirement 1c?). -Z- —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ncry-rrmb (talkcontribs) July 11, 2009. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)

    Old cloth badge pictured

    The cloth badge pictured on the Railroading Merit Badge page is the old one.

    The current badge looks like this:

    Railroading worksheet error

    Moved from: Talk:Merit Badge Worksheets

    The Railroading merit badge worksheet (both the .doc and .pdf) in 8a(3) (which is model railroading, identify gauge & scale...) has extra text that is NOT in the requirements: "Show the correct way to clean and oil model train equipment." That should be deleted. The rest of the text seems to line up nicely with the current requirements.

    I haven't yet figured out how to get access to change it, or to contact Sysops, so I'm trying this talk page... :-) Wesley —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mcder017 (talkcontribs) March 23, 2011. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)

    Wesley, I will check into this today (and reply here when I found out something). Thanks, —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 10:37, March 23, 2011 (EDT)

    Railroading worksheet update

    Wesley, I have removed the offending text; uploaded a new .pdf version here (we do not host .doc versions here, at this time); and, forwarded the updated .doc and .pdf versions to USSSP.

    Thanks, again. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 11:06, March 23, 2011 (EDT)
