      I'm trying to get in but I forgot my USERID. I wrote down the password, but a lot of good it does me. Won't let me rergister because my email address is already used.

      Sheesh!

      I don't know what I can contribute to the forums there...as I've never been known as a "Lover" of all things Aristo.   I reserve my love for my family, and any lady-friends I might have....!!

      Wow I didn't know it was still active. I think I got booted off the forum for posting one of my homemade critters, it had Aristocraft motor blocks but a Bachmann body which was apparently a big no no back then for somebody

      I have a user name there. Way back when I first got into large scale some 12+ years ago I joined that forum. Learned very quickly that if you were not an Aristo-Craft foamer you were not very welcome there. I lurked there for a while looking to pick up information on what little Aristo-Craft I owned. Didn't take long and I stopped lurkeing as well. I have found much more friendship here and get as good or better (honest) information here. I have no reason to go back...even if I could remember enough to get back in.

      A long time ago I quit the Aristo Forum after several years of participation.  I think they were upset at me for posting a thread with pictures about the GP40's smoking motors (bad batch of motors) and plating falling off its wheels, and later I posted a thread about a Lionel steam loco to illustrate blind driver wheels, which they did not like that I don't understand their objection to this day. Anyway, Aristo is now defunct.

      The Aristo Forum is much the same as others.  You can read it but it only necessary to have a user name and password to post.  Same as here.  This place is the most active, others tend to be quiet or reminiscent of Facebook.

      I was curious as my pal Tim is fighting to repair a 2-8-2. The Aristo forums say 'not available' - are they officially defunct?

       

      And where do I find Navin's phone number?

      The site was up till last Friday.  The site was locked do to issues and hopefully it will be back up as Johnathan was sent a e mail about it and he was unaware there was a issue.  I just checked today and still no totally up.  Hope it comes back as there are a few of us that stay active there.  Later RJD
