As you know, we ended up losing a lot of images. We received many of them using some utilities written by Alain and I, but images that were tagged from eBay or downloaded and then upload were for the most part lost.

As I mentioned in my previous blog, ALL images are being migrated to AWS (amazon web services) but I cannot migrate an image that was lost. Instead any image that has become 404 due to the server crash is being tagged as BAD and can be found here.

Bad Image List

Note: this list is capped at 5,000 entries so the page does not get too long.

The program doing the tagging is running in the background as a slow pace so as not to disrupt regular users. It is scanning the N Scale database 50 items at a time and tagging the bad ones, so expect this TODO list to be growing as more and more items are tagged. However, it will also be shrinking as folks fix individual items.

Thank you all for your help with the heavy lifting,
