Ad Layout & Design

Featured [desktop] ads would display a 300 x 250 pixel image (illustrated at the top right), as seen on this page (This is subject to change based on what may be best for a particular advertiser, there are a number of custom sizes available.  Please note, a larger image may increase the final cost.), in the right or left column of nearly every page, in the footer, or directly within articles (for an idea of how this would appear, there are thumbnail images currently featured in these columns which open to general articles within the site).  Your ad may also open an article fully describing your organization's/company's service(s) or product(s) and would be as large, or small, as you would like with accompanying photos, documents, or anything else you would like included with the information.  (Please note that your ad may be updated with a new image throughout the year whenever you like and for any reason.  For instance, if you are a tourist railroad and wish to highlight your upcoming fall or Christmas/holiday trains via a themed image you can certainly do so.)

It is my sincere hope you get the most out of advertising on  The idea behind the article, for example, is to increase a potential customer's/visitor's immediate interest and that they will want to learn more about your product(s) or service(s).  In addition, of course, would be included the company's website.  Lastly, if-needed I can custom-build your ad for you.  If so, please have your image and/or general information ready along with an idea of how you would like it to appear.
