Thanks Lewis, for keeping the forum open, but most of all thanks for all the good times I have had with your good Aristo products. Great engines, cars and over 1000 ft of track

Thanks Lewis !!

Will be much appreciated :)

I was also wondering (if not already mentioned elsewhere) if the UNcatalogued Database could also be saved, maybe even released to the volunteer(s) who have both put so much time into and multiple times requested access to continue upgrades (i like to reference and submit). . . . Personally I will miss it more than the forum !!

nite,

Mr Polk, very sad reading through this, even though it's had some time to sink in. You are a great person and very genuine. The hobby has benefitted from your work. I know things must change, I just don't handle this stuff well.
I wish you, and all your family, and all the staff, all the best.
Very generous gesture again, just backing this forum.
Wish I was rich, I'd bribe you guys into staying.;)
God bless. Good health.

Lewis, would it be possible to add a section to the Forums for the exploded parts diagrams? These are very useful guides when repairing cars and locomotives. It would also help people searching the Internet for parts in future years.

Doug,

I am acquainted with some one who has made a good suggestion to Aristo-Craft regarding the un-catalogued section. The main issue presently, it seems, is that it does needs updating.

I agree. I would certainly be willing to "pay to play". When I think of all the $$$$ that folks here have saved me, it would be worth it to me!
