To be fair about this:

My understanding of the situation (through some evidence) was that these cabooses ended up in the situation they are in NOT because of the actions of the ARCHES, but rather because of an individual using the name of the society incorrectly, and then having title dumped upon the society by the member.

I have never seen any indication that these cabooses were part of any formal "society" preservation project. There was mention that "the society had several surplus examples for sale," with the phone number and name of the individual in question, in the "Captive Cabeese" listing book.

So, therefore, although the results of the ARCHES may be called into question, the plot like of Ed's "meme" does NOT apply to this situation.

So what's the story on these? I gave Richard's contact information to some folks and they say he was rude on the phone when they called. Something about not wanting to be called at 7:30. A time zone difference I think.

I would presume he doesn't really want to get the cabeese to a new home, then--and/or is in some form of denial about the (alleged) situation he's (allegedly) in..

Not the first time we've confronted this kind of situation; won't be the last, either, sadly.

So how did this play out? It's the end of the month, did they get moved or saved or something else?

I'd be a player with more time.

Attached is screen grab of ARCHES contact page. Italics are original to the page. Looks like Tom Smykowski's "Jump to Conclusions" game may be enjoying a resurgence during the COVID stay at home era.

If--as alleged--he/"they" only have/had two weeks to find a savior, you take the bloody calls no matter your personal preference for business hours.

If a person cares more about their personal schedule convenience than an outright preservation emergency that is their responsibility to mitigate.......

I'm quite willing to wager that this person's phone is not "ringing off the hook" with constant inquiries. (Boy, that's a dated cliché now.)

Agreed. It’s 2020, have an answering machine.

It's 1995, get an answering machine.

In 2020 you have voicemail, probably whether you want it or not.

But only if your voicemail isn’t full....
