Good Morning Troops...!
New member here, just registered this morning, First Post...!
 
Back in the early 2000's there was a website called railspot.com.
Had the GREATEST database of locomotives and RR's, both old & new, I ever saw.  Gave Bldrs #'s, history of ownership, etc.
 
I started printing/dumping the listings, and then the site just disappeared!
 
railspot.com today is a 'vacant' URL...?
 
Anybody got any poop on where the site went, if it has been 'renamed', etc...?
 
A real shame if it is gone forever, somebody really put a lot of work into it...!
 
Thanks...  //  Dennis Skiffington, Hammond LA

Welcome, Mr. Skeffington,
 
If railspot is the website that was maintained by Don Ross, then it appears he is still very active.
 
Try this link: www.donsdepot.donrossgroup.net
 
It appears that he has been updating the database here as recently as a few days ago.
 
 
Regards,
 
Norm
