    Columbia SC to Northern VA Need M35A3 Moved

    As I have done in the past, I've used the good graces of another SS member to store something for too long. Time just flies sometimes. I have an M35A3 stored at Adams Railroad museum down in the Columbia, SC area that needs to come up to Chantilly or Lucketts, VA. The truck drives wonderfully...

    GL "Management" - the guy behind the curtain...

    So what I'd like to know, has anyone on this board ever actually spoken to "Management" at GL? I must say that I have had several good outcomes when I've unfortunately had to deal with him/her/them, but therein lies the issue - who is "Management". Why can't "Management" come out from behind...

    Need 3 Deuces Annville to VA - or local storage?

    GL does sometimes surprise you and actually gets EUC's processed quickly - 2 business days from submission to approval. :) :? The problem with that is when you plan for it to take longer and then family problems arise ( son going into hospital for ??? time) and you can't go pick up your stuff...

    I'm going to Richmond, VA tomorrow 2/17, to pick up a couple of units and might have time to check out a couple of things if anyone needs help? That also is dependent on how the "new" guy Michael at the site allows us to look around. It's been a while since I've made any previews or pickups...

    Are the Forums now the Classifieds?

    Recently, it appears that a greater percentage of the Forum posts are really full blown classified ads thinly disguised as "items members are selling on Ebay" or elsewhere. Many posts are just ads and nothing else. It seems split between Newbies and long term members, who are doing the...
