It's up again now. Whatever craziness is going on you'd think those who are responsible for the site would make certain it's in tip top shape. Its erratic behavior is a pita,

Several years back the site was operated by forum member MojoMark, as per the thread I linked to earlier on.  He hasn’t logged into the forum for over two years though, but he does have an email address in his inactive profile.....

Unless we're making an annual donation to the webmaster, perhaps we should not be critical of a free, but valuable service.  John

Just tried it and got in fine; there's also a PayPal donation link on the home page.  Perhaps that, too, should be used...

I'd love to know how you get in, I tried Firefox, Chrome, and MS-Edge browsers, I get the same thing on all of them.  If that's your definition of in, it's not all that useful.

I'd actually consider donating if there was any usefulness to the site, but this limits my desire to spend money on it.

I was able to get into http://www.legacykline.com/apps/kl/catalog.html using Chrome just a few minutes after your post, and it appears to be displaying properly.  Chrome says the site is not secure - perhaps there's something in your settings that is limiting what you see.

I'm at a loss, Chrome is reset to defaults as is MS Edge, still no joy.  I'm not going to clobber all my Firefox settings as I doubt that will fix it.  I don't have any extra special filtering going on, so I don't know why it wouldn't work.

Note that a host of people all have the same issue, so it's not like it's an issue with my environment.

I accessed the site by clicking on the link in Mallard4468’s post using Safari on my iPad.  Clicked on a few links on the site, appears to be working okay for me.

FWIW, I also can't access it. I've tried four different browsers and I see the same exact thing as John. To those of you who can access the site, do you think you could post contact info for the webmaster? My day job is as a systems engineer for a certain fruit company and I'd be willing to chip in to help figuring out what's up. My guess is that it's certificate-related on the server side. I just need to know who to email.

Website says that owner goes by the handle mojomark on OGR.  His profile contains an email address and website (go there to find it - not going to post here).  His profile says he joined in 2005, but last visit was April 2017, so who knows if he's active or not.

I am using a new iPad that I have had only a few weeks.  I doubt that the Kline web site is cached on it.  I haven’t tried to access the Kline web site for a very long time.  I do see “Not Secure” in the URL area when I access the site.

Here is a screen shot taken just a few minutes ago.

Same info I posted here above back in above back in August.

There has to be some kind of Internet access issue.  I have had a couple of issues like this over the years when a block of Internet addresses were not accessible to me.

Mystery solved!  It is some sort of Internet routing issue.  I used a free proxy server that is hosted in the Netherlands, and BAM, it came right up.

Hi Folks, 

I'm sorry some of you are having problems. I am not seeing the same issues with the K-Line site from my house. Although, I have had that behavior with one of my other sites hosted on the same platform.

I'll open another ticket with my hosting provider to see if they can provide some insight on the behavior. 

(sorry for the absentee owner... all my train stuff is in storage so I've been out of the hobby for a few years.)

Great to see you post Mark.

I think it's some sort of Internet routing issue, I've seen this before.  The fact that by going through a proxy server I was able to access it normally tells me that there is a disconnect between parts of the Internet and your web hosting site.

I hope you get your stuff out of storage soon and are able to once again enjoy the model train hobby.

I just tried GRJ's suggestion using the server he posted and it went right to the home page of the K-Line site. When I clicked on a link there, it went to 'ERROR'. Tried repeatedly with several links getting the same error message.  I'm on Spectrum here in Western NC.

I'm beginning to think it might be Verizon that's the problem!

I don't think it's Verizon, we have Google and that isn't getting through either.

Comcast was not able to connect yesterday and also on and off for a while.  However, today I was able to connect to the site after @MojoMark posted above.  Also, thank you @gunrunnerjohn for the proxy server link; I'll give it a try since at times comcast can be stubbornly fussy.

You can have a steam train ...If you'd just lay down your tracks.

The Hidester Proxy link got through, but I had to try several different times with different settings from that site.

Your second link above, ProxySite.com, worked just fine, even tried a few links on the KLine site and all was well. Definitely something strange going on there. 

I'm using Chrome, didn't try anything else.

Works!

Did it just suddenly start working, or did you use a proxy server?

Just started
