Works for me too, but Joe's original link is full of all sorts of tagging or tracking info.

Trimmed, this should work better.

Good to see them being in business and active. For a while it seemed like they would be closing shop.

Definitely good, and are expanding their line, too. These "paving" solutions are well-timed for me, as well. Something else I was considering to represent pavement - a specialized grout - arrived Friday and was a Great Big Fail. Main problem I have is modeling highway surfaces with a perceptible crown, that is, forming the crown and still keeping it subtle. That gets us back to plaster or something like it.  :(

I'm going to try scoring the underside of my styrene road and see if I can bend a small crown into it.  Might work.  I hope I never have to go back to plaster for roads.  :scared:

Just glue a small strip down the underside in the center and attach as normal, voila.

Peteski:  Your "cleaned-up" link works for me as well.  I tried deleting the "extras" last night, but must have missed a character somewhere.

I'm still using FF 52.9.0, as I'm still using Windows XP, and that's the last update for the OS.  So far, I haven't found any websites that don't work on it, although I suspect that some have features I don't see, and haven't missed.

You didn't miss anything.  All links to the site were giving the redirect error even just to the home page. Pete's link works because everything works now.

But wait, there's more!...

I just received my very first spam from AR&M, a surprise given my most recent purchase was over six months ago. So something big has changed there - new products, new marketing strategy. I like their products and use them quite a bit. So recalling all the "are they still alive?" queries from a few years ago, this in total is good news. I guess it's probably incumbent upon me to reward the positive changes with purchases for near-term projects sooner rather than later.

Me, too, although my order was within the last three months.

My order, by the way, went unanswered for approximately four weeks before the package mysteriously appeared on my doorstep one day.  I had given up and was about to look into getting my money back (through PayPal or credit card), assuming that AR&M had gone under.  Hopefully, they are back on their feet, and service like that will cease.  I wish them the best of luck and am currently using a couple of their products on my layout, e.g., "CSX/NS ballast" and "Beach Sand."  I would like to continue to use their products.

Jason:  Sounds like server problems, then, and maybe not AR&M's server.  I wonder if they changed IP addresses, and it hadn't been updated in the DNS servers yet? 

I ran into that with a professional astronomy site in France once.  It took over a day for all of the world's DNS servers to update.

I got an email from AR&M the other day about "high desert" scenery ground cover.
