Some of you are aware that the 3dtrains.com site went down on Thursday, July 2. This forced me to search for a more reliable hosting service, and fortunately, I was able to locate one at a reasonable price.

However, since I'm unable to access the forum database from the old server, much was lost, including many user registrations, all attachment data, and some old email. While the attachment files are toast, I was able to recover nearly all posts and registrations up to October 2013, but anything afterward, including posts and registrations are gone. Therefore, anyone who registered after October 2013 will need to do so again, and if purchases were made and file access is needed, then those folks will need to email their purchasing details. I'll be sifting through my email backups to try to get some user permissions updated, especially for those that purchased the Sherman Hill route. I hope to have this completed in the next day or so.

Note that some linked downloads may not work, but I should have most of the major files back online by this evening. Your patience and understanding in this is greatly appreciated.

If my old host shows up and allows me to access the old server, then I may be able to retrieve the database and possibly some attachments, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. If you find that your forum access is not what it should be, please let me know via email or PM.

My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Cheers!
Marc

They've been uploaded, but I haven't had a chance to update the site's public pages.

Cheers!
