After spammers and one Script Kiddie deciding to run a bot to replace every page with jibberish I've had to remove Account registration completely and lock down the site.
Now, if you want an account here you will need to contact me first. I'm finally getting there with site updates on the main TrainWatch site so until I get an online contact form up the current method would be to contact me on Twitter first.
