    Default Checkrail.com suspended?

    I went to Checkrail.com today, only to find a message saying "account suspended".

    What happened? Did Dermmy violate some rule?

    Probably just needs to pay for another year of hosting

    I’m not getting that: just a failure for the page to load

    I had a sense from previous views the site would be ending. I have run all his routes.

    I tried it on the computer and only got a Cox Communications Error saying the site couldn't be found. I have informed Dermmy of the situation. However, considering he was last active in November, I can only hope he will respond.

    In that case, it looks like we'll just have to share his routes with each other: attempts to retrieve the Clovis Sub by Archive only resulted in a non-existent "HTTP 302 Response Crawl Time”. I say non-existent because there's no such thing as a crawl time. I told the forums about this, but it seems they've done nothing about it.

    Gday all.

    Checkrail is gone, didn't seem worth another year's hosting with nothing on it that was remotely up to the standards being set in Tane.

    Cheers,

    Hi Andy

    I'm sorry to see the site go but I would like to thank you for the routes that you created. EVWR v2 and Clovis Sub are my two favourites and I have them both in TANE and working well after a bit of effort swapping trees for TANE friendly ones and repairing the odd bits of faulty content. While not quite up to the recent standard of some of the East European routes created for TANE, they still set a very high standard and look better than many other routes being created for TANE at the moment. What I like about your routes is that they can be operated in a very realistic manner and they continue to give me hours of pleasure.

    Clovis Sub has proved ideal for using Track Circuit Blocks combined with Pierre Guys Mission Codes for creating fully automated sessions and EVWR v2 is perfect for fully automated industry controlled sessions.

    Once again thank you for sharing your routes in the past.

    Regards

    Brian

    Understandable but a shame to see the site go, thanks for the routes, which are IMO still of a higher standard than some of the junk being uploaded to the DLS these days.

    Junk being the keyword. I think those routes are being uploaded by kids, and there's no quality assurance on N3Vs part that anything goes.

    Thanks Andy for the best routes in any sim.

    Doesn't take much to change the trees and track in TANE:





    Even with the old track and trees EK3 is better than most routes in TANE:
