It has come to my attention that I have enemies who have busied themselves with inventing, designing and funding other websites which use the same newenglandrailfan.com alphabetical letters which I use. These individuals do so by using capitol letters within the same name as this website. They should be ashamed of themselves for what they have done. My website is not in any way, shape or form connected with their sick and evil masquerading. http://www.newenglandrailfan.com/ is the " ORIGIONAL " website dealing with railroading PERIOD. If you want the real railroading action this is the right place to be. Porn and smut is " BANNED " from this website. Make sure to enter the above URL to always insure that you are going to the correct website. Thank You.
NOTE.... IT SEEMS THAT THAT OTHER WEBSITE WITH A NAME LIKE MINE A.K.A. " NERFS " IS NO LONGER ON THE INTERNET. SEEMS THEY DON'T HAVE ME TO BEAT UP AND THROW UNDER THE BUS ANYMORE SO THE OWNER THREW IN THE TOWEL. DESPITE THAT OTHER WEBSITE HAVING SOME 230+ MEMBERS, ONLY THE SAME SEVERAL POSTED ON A REGULAR BASIS. FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD MANY OF THE OTHERS WERE JUST PLAIN DISGUSTED WITH HOW THEY CONDUCTED THEMSELVES TOWARDS ME.
Like Elton John would sing..... " Don't-cha know that http://www.newenglandrailfan.com/ is still standin after all this time. " YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT BABY. " Roo-Haa!! BYE BYE NERFS!!!
I'm still standing and that's an understatement if there ever was one!
IFTHERE ARE RAILFANS WHO WERE FORMER MEMBERS OF THE NOW DEFUNK NEWENGLANDRAILFANS WEBSITE..... AND THAT'S THE ONE WITH A " S " ON THE END THEN I'LL CONSIDER / ALLOW YOU MEMBERSHIP ON THIS WEBSITE ONCE AGAIN. Thank You. J.S.
Numerous Clueless Individuals.... from certain other websites completely lacking any bonafide proof directly linking me to any form of deliberate wrongdoing regarding volunteer work on MEC #501 at N. Conway N.H. project despite repeated requests by both myself and others in the past to provide such proof thus in my opinion leaves them falling flat on their faces over and over again Solid proof, not rumors or hearsay.
To date.... NOT A DAMM SHREAD OF EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT ANY OF THEIR B/S!!!
So many of my accusers took the low road and falsely pointed the finger of blame at me when I was in fact only just one of some 2 dozen or so individuals performing work on MEC # 501 in the past. Much ( Micky Mouse Work) was undertaken on MEC #501 long....long, long before I ever became a 470 Club Member & MEC #501 Volunteer in 1996. In 1997 I began working on her under the direction of the (late) Matt Rines ( MEC #501 Restoration Project Manager. )
Please note.... Many of those falsely pointing the finger of blame at me were still either still young and wet behind the ears or were old enough to join the action and do something to help but chose to do nothing. Most critics never belonged to The 470 Club or are /were CSRX employees who deep down regarded a restored MEC Steam Locomotive #501 as a threat to them being able to sink their grubby little fingers into someone else's pride and joy.
I still follow news regarding updates dealing with Conway Scenic #7470, MEC #501, MEC #470 and the Union Pacific Railroad #4014 project.
I wish to state the following..... I previously posted on my website MEC 2-8-0 #501 will be leaving N. Conway for a new home in Maine within the next couple of years.
You know.....I could have requested my accountant cut a check to the tune of $25,000.00 to assist a new group trying to raise funding for The MEC #470 Restoration Project.
However.... after I've been thrown under the bus so many times by individuals known to be members of a former website with a name similar to mine, I've made other plans.
Twenty Five Thousand Dollars is chump change to me. I bet none of those who speak badly of me have ever seen a $25K wad of cash or a check made out to that amount for that matter.
Oh my gosh.... The shortcomings of putting the hose to someone with one hand and holding out the other hand looking for donations.
As I still see it..... I still hold the magic key to MEC #501 being made operational again, despite cheap talk to the contrary. The 470 Club will become defunct before she will ever steam again. Both #470 as well as #501 will not steam again before the year 2050.
I believe " The UP #4014 " " BIG BOY " restoration project group would love to receive an anonymous $25,000.00 donation. I believe in fact they'd be delighted to receive additional monetary support to help their cause. I have a funny hunch that the UP #4014 group won't be posting all kinds of foul, abusive, malicious, false hooded hearsay comments about me all over the Internet. My accountant will be handling these matters for me. Thank You.
BREAKING NEWS..... My accountant has advised me my $25,000.00 donation towards the UP #4014 project has been placed into a sort of what I'd like to refer as a special " Holding Account " The #4014 is in transit mode currently on it's way to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
