I found that a lot of the photos are still visible if you use the Internet Archive "Wayback Machine" (https://web.archive.org) to find the articles.
One Example: https://web.archive.org/web/20031121022044/http://www.rypn.org/briefs/september2003/030916.html
Maybe this would help with photos that can't be found from other sources? Some of the images in the "Wayback Machine" don't have the best resolution, but may be better than nothing?...

Once the site is up running and can be edited again, those who have articles on the site might want to take a look at the possibility of correcting any details that have been changed by the passing of time. For example, I mentioned back around 2007 that RSI was the EMD parts distributor for museums and preservation organizations, that has all changed now. Progress Rail took parts distribution back from RSI, and their parent KirbyCorp subsequently phased out RSI, the company no longer exists. I suspect there are some other small details that have been changed by events the last 10 years.

A quick and easy to implement option that I've seen used on other website is to tag the older articles as "Archived Information". It appears to be based on date, and may even be automated. Typically a warning message is posted noting that the article is out of date and the information may no longer be current or accurate, however the article is being maintained for reference purposes.
