What's new with the September 18, 2016 update:
- THE TWO UNIDENTIFIED ROLLSIGNS' ORIGINS HAVE BEEN SOLVED!
...the "SEE
WINDOW SIGN" insert is from Mansfield, Ohio (Richland County Transit). As a result, a NEW PAGE has been
created for Mansfield, Ohio, with a history of transit in Richland County, Ohio.

- THE OVER THREE MONTH LONG PROCESS TO UPGRADE TO ROLLSIGN GALLERY'S APPEARANCE IS COMPLETE! All web
pages have been upgraded to make them smart phone friendly. The current format will allow anyone to view Rollsign
Gallery now, whether on a smart phone or tablet, or on a desktop or laptop computer. All functions, embedded videos,
rollsign enlargement features and purchase links have been verified to work on all platforms. It also allowed me to
update various images and texts, and to correct some spelling or grammar errors. In addition, the watermarking
process for images has also been upgraded to make the images posted and shared even more difficult to steal.
- TWO NEW PHOTOS have been added to the Toronto Transit Commission section, one on the Eglinton Garage page and
one on the Malvern Garage page. In addition, photos of the all the buses with the 1995 mylars from each individual
garage have also been added to the 1995 Mylars page. All these changes can be accessed through the Ontario hub
page, then the Toronto hub page.

era is excusively on Page 2. All of this is accessible through the Ontario provincial hub page.
- EVEN MORE BEHIND THE SCENES: Along with the changes to the watermarking process, experiments are underway to
make all of Rollsign Gallery's web pages more smart phone friendly. These changes should help eliminate such issues
as formatting errors and overlapping text on various pages. The pages added or updated on January 1st have some of
the experiments applied to them. If there are any issues that still occur on these new pages, feel free to send me a
screen capture of the error(s) so they can be dealt with. THANK YOU!
