Post subject:  Where did gingerb go?

Have any of you used the Web site gingerb.com in the past? It held a wealth of information about the CNJ and other anthracite roads, and I used it extensively to research photo locations, as well as for general knowledge, and I also linked to it on RRProject113.org, the Web site I built for Project 113 in Minersville, Pa. In any event, gingerb has disappeared, and I wonder what anyone here knows about why. Thanks --

The last 'functioning' version of the site was archived August 1 2015:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150801154 ... ngerb.com/

I note that according to the site itself, no updates to the content had been made since some time in 2005. That would suggest that the site persisted on someone's server, and when that server was taken down for some reason, or updated without regard for "legacy" content, the Web presence similarly vanished.

It's possible that the above link is adequate for many people's purposes -- I tried a few of the hyperlinks and those seemed to be live.

Thanks so much, Overmod! Can I ask how you found it? I have gotten fairly good at Web searches, but plainly I have a lot to learn --
