The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Thank you Nestor, but please note that my "blog" continues on the Photo-forums web sites for trains, ships and aircraft. My latest exploit was a trip by rail from New York to San Francisco, documented on those sites. I actually thought that this group of sites had closed down! Perhaps editor Marcel can explain the situation.

Hi Peter, just saw your last comment. Marcel is no longer editing these sites (for almost a year now) and has subsequently moved on to other things. However, we are the original designers of this archiving software system and since Marcel left for newer pastures, have been doing our best to keep the system running as smoothly as possible. Hope that explains things a little better. We do, of course, much appreciate all your contributions and comments.
