Digital Railroad Closes Today
Due to lack of financial backing
A few of you may be in for a shock, especially if you used Digital Railroad for archiving your images. Digital Railroad posted a bulletin on their Web site today officially closing down their operations. Despite seeking investors and financial backing for the last few weeks, the company has succumbed to the financial crisis and has shut its door to its customers.

To our valued Members and Partners:
We deeply regret 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 close all operations.
Digital Railroad has attracted a loyal set of customers and partners, and we regret this unfortunate outcome. Without sufficient long-term financial support, the business had become unsustainable.
Thank you for allowing us to serve the photographic community these past few years.
