Where is Model Trains Weathered website?

The Model Trains Weathered website (http://www.modeltrainsweathered.com/) appears to be off the air. Anyone know if this is permanent or is it a maintenance issue? The URL just goes to a generic site that has nothing to do with the weathering site.

Hope it's not permanent, there was a lot of good weathering work featured there.

Maybe we can pick up the slack over here?

I don't a Professional Weatherer vs. Professional Weatherer shouting match though! :facepalm:

you know, first they went members-only for a fee (!), then they relented and went free for everyone.  When that happened, I wondered how long they'd be around. :facepalm:

Many of the regulars ended up @ProtoWeathering.com.  Nice group with lot's of talent and the peer pressure is reminiscent of here.

Thanks for the replies.

There also seems to be a lot of good weathering activity at the Rust Bucket. http://tws-rustbucket.com/index.cgi?. (registration required, similar to Railwire)

It's a shame to lose MTW, there were a lot of really good people and projects there.
