Don't know what happened to them, although I have several possible ideas.

1)At some point a while back, the admins changed servers or software in some manner, so when things hiccupped at that point, they might have gotten lost/dumped.
2)I'm not sure whether at some point, the photos get dumped, after a certain period of time, or when you've exceeded your space on the server. I seem to recall going back to several photo albums only to find that the pictures I can look at as thumbnails, from way back, but not as anything else. To me that's a software/server issue.
3)Somebody deleted them, either intentionally(hack) or unintentionally(how/who/unknown)
4)server dumps old stuff when its memory is exceeded
5)other cause TBD

Reconstruction of Photos of Central Midland & a new VIDEO

Since my many photos disappeared from this discussion, I thought I might resurrect it in another forum with some of the photos that I thought I had misplaced.
Central Midland by John Armstrong

I really grew to like this layout plan by John Armstrong,...other than the 'too tight' radius turns in a few places.

And I discovered a neat Video a fellow had put together,...and it included a turntable area as I had modified the original plan
