My goodness there are so many rumors that digitalrailroad.net derailed. I have about 4000 public images on my drr archive and I just renewed the yearly subscription, so I hope however the things will turn, I will keep on using my on-line archive.
and their message to DRR members:
For the past few weeks, Digital Railroad (DRR) has been seeking additional funding required to sustain its current level of operations. To date, those efforts have been unsuccessful. As a result, effective October 15, 2008, the company has initiated a reduction in staff and expenses while it continues the funding effort. Nevertheless, Digital Railroad is committed to the continued support of its customers through this period and has retained adequate staff to support both member archives and image licensing sales through Marketplace.
Although it looks like I made a bet on a wrong horse, I claim I made a bet on the only horse that was outthere for my needs! HERE is my review of DRR after a year of usage.
