Red Star Railway's Comments

25 August 2017

Dear Friends --

Today I spoke with my friend and web guru Joe Zammetti. We discussed the process of replacing the current Red Star Railways website with its new, post-Red Star replacement. Joe and I still have work to do, but I know some details, and I'd like to share them with my friends and clients.

When the time comes to replace the current website, Joe will have to shut down the current (let's refer to it as "old") site for about three hours. After that, the new website will be available, using the existing URL www.redstarrailways.com.

So, if you dial up www.redstarrailways.com and get bounced, come back a few hours later. Hopefully you'll re-connect in the post-Red Star world.

Best wishes,

Chris

Dear Friends,

Well, I'm finally going to do it. It's time to replace the Red Star Railways website with a new one more suited to my non-business, private citizen status.

Actually, I've known for a long time that the current site would have to go, but I just couldn't bring myself to supercede my web guru Joe Zammetti's handiwork of many years. However, retaining the old site has become awkward for a number of reasons.

The new site will consist of one long page, with photos of the models developed during the Red Star Railways era (and for which, obviously, I still have the tooling). The key to the new site will be the "News and Comments" page, which will be nothing more than the Red Star Comments page renamed. When I have built some models, or at least secured enough materials to warrant producing a batch, I will announce it in "News and Comments." No doubt I will also express my views on various subjects (read: Trump) when I feel so motivated.

There will also be contact information, plus some links.

One thing will not change: the URL. I am keeping the www.redstarrailways.com URL. After all, this URL is known to and used by quite a few people. Also, by continuing to use this URL, I will prevent any other individual or firm from using it -- which could complicate my life beyond what I feel like dealing with in my old age.

So, don't be surprised when the current site goes away and is replaced by the new one. It's time. And change is good -- at least, that's what I keep trying to tell myself . . .

Kindest wishes,

Chris
