Digital Railroad winds up operations  
Tuesday, October 28, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
In a notice to its members today, online photo storage and sales provider Digital Railroad indicates that it's ceasing operations, and that access to photographer archives could be switched off by October 29, 2008.

The message being shown to members when they access their Digital Railroad account is below. This follows news earlier this month that the service was in financial trouble.

Digital Railroad Suspending Operations - Added Oct. 28, 2008

To our valued Members:

We're sorry to inform you that Digital Railroad (DRR) has shut down.

On October 15th we reported that the company had reduced its staff and was aggressively pursuing additional financing and/or a strategic partner. Unfortunately, those efforts were unsuccessful. Therefore Digital Railroad has been forced to suspend all operations.

This archive may only be accessible for the next 24 hours.

Digital Railroad has attracted a loyal set of members. Thank you for allowing us to serve the photographic community these past few years.

All questions pertaining to claims should be addressed to:

Digital Railroad, Inc.
c/o Diablo Management Group
1452 N. Vasco Road, #301
Livermore, CA 94551


PhotoShelter, which runs a competing service, is offering Digital Railroad members an extended subscription period if they set up an account before November 4, 2008.

Thanks to Peter Llewellyn for bringing this to our attention.
