Welcome to the All New DASH

Jan. 28th 2016

An all new version of DASH has arrived at the station! More improvements are on the way and a mobile friendly marketplace is on the horizon. We were already chugging along, but now we're really running at full steam!

With all the railroading puns are out of the way, you've probably noticed DASH looks a lot different! We think you'll find the site more attractive, more functional, and more fun. As you might imagine, much like laying a new rail, it took a lot of work from our entire team! 

There are loads of new features to discover, including upgraded Showcases, more social interaction, and mobile responsiveness (i.e., it'll work great on your phone!).

As with any new construction, you're sure to find some errors here and there. If you encounter any bugs or want to offer your feedback, please let us know via support@collector-modeltrains.com.

Stay tuned for more news, a special contest or two, and additional site enhancements that are all on the way soon!

Welcome to the new era of DASH!

    So far what I see royally sucks. This site is now harder to navigate, not easier. The old site was well organized and easy to use. This is not. There are many errors in the catalog that need to be corrected. Where is the edit feature? The various road names had been in alphabetical order now they seem to be in no particular order. The left to right listings are much harder to use then the normal top to bottom.

    I thought the older site was a very good one. Now I am not so sure. I have made many contributions to the catalog. Now I just don't know. There are still many, many entries in the wrong places with wrong or incomplete information.

    FAQs stills say - "DASH’s catalog is built as a “wiki-enabled” community resource. We have internal audit capabilities and a team of experts to help review updates made to the catalog; however, we rely on the contributions of our users to keep the DASH catalog the most accurate and comprehensive resource for model trains collectors. Editing information for an item in the catalog is easy."

    The "add item" feature does not work.

      Hello wfs63,

      Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We also appreciate all the effort you've put into maintaining the Catalog. That's incredibly important to us and users like you make DASH great.

      I'm sorry that you haven't been enjoying your experience with the new design so far, and I hope you'll offer us some extra patience while we finish rolling it out. The Catalog editing and adding tools you mention weren't quite ready, but will be coming back very soon.

      We're always trying our best to build something great for the railroading hobby, and I'd love to hear more of your valuable feedback. I'll be sending you an email shortly to start that conversation.
