I've added some of the ones posted after I created the bundle. I also removed the WW&F discussion group because there are a lot of posts that are chat between members and not really news. I'm torn about the NYC tugboat one because it is not rail preservation in one sense but it is at a different level. I might wait and see how often posts come through and if they are real restoration news before I pull the plug on that one.

I am new to this bundle concept and when I make a change I have to wait a few days until some new posts come through to understand how it all works. This is my learning curve. I do intend to keep up with it so if you have any additional feedback or suggestions please let me know.

The New York Central tugboat has a pair of six cylinder Detroit Diesel 110's? Wow, just like a Budd RDC.

I have added a few more of the recently posted blogs. I'll add the rest of the new ones later today. I am eager to see new posts come through now that I have made some changes. There were a few blogs that I was not able to include because the rss feed was not enabled.

Also, if you have a custom homepage with google, yahoo, or one of the others you can add the Railway Preservation Bundle right to your homepage.

I've added a few more blogs to my Railway Preservation Bundle. The link is here:
http://www.google.com/reader/bundle/use ... eservation

The American Steam Railroads site and the ones using myspace are not providing a RSS feed so they will not work with the bundle. There are now a total of 31 feeds going into the bundle covering steam locomotives, museums, trolleys, operating railroads, restoration contractors, and even a railroad tugboat restoration for you railroad/marine nuts out there.

I am interested in how the bundle is working so please let me know what you think. I try to make adjustments whenever I get feedback.

Thanks,

I've added these except for the West Shore Station because it seemed to be Newburgh town preservation site with just one single entry about the train station and the rest were non-railroad entries. If I got that part wrong please let me know.
