Mack Rail – The Locomotives

Recommended Posts

Every once in a while I'll bump into a picture I took on google and I could care less- I'm a trucker, not a professional journalist.

simple solution to this. edit the post to delete that picture, with a note: "picture deleted after 6 years because it just offended a snowflake"  :thumb:

First the complainer needs to prove he has a valid current copyright to that image.

Second the complainer needs to prove the image was taken from his website, and when. The complainer may have lost his claim by setting up the website to allow the copying of images

Third he needs to show how he was harmed and or how the use of the image benefited some one else financially

The last hurdle will be the statue of limitations

Black dog Nice superliner. Hard to believe he gave you a hard time about a picture of your truck.

Trolling Google images and trying to get copyright holders whipped up about someone else using their pictures is apparently a business strategy for some legal firms. I'm personally aware of this case from a few years ago:

There exist automated services for doing this, apparently, and some "enterprising" legal group decided to start offering the "service" as something that one can pay for.

Well personally I think it’d be an honor to have my pictures used to discuss history, or used at all and an example of something! It’d be different if someone tried to claim they took the photo themselves but that’s clearly not the situation here... but I guess people will do anything for money. It’s sad to see someone try to scam others out of money for sharing information, or in this case photos, that they have provided to the public. This would be a different story if he just responded “hey those are my pictures!” and left it at that but he had to go and threaten a lawsuit over it!

thank you for sharing the history of Macks on rails, it’d be interesting to restore one of those AC based ones, it’d probably be easier than the other two, can’t believe nobody ever talks about Macks locomotives.

Hank Suderman has taken down Hanks Truck Pictures never to be seen again I guess. To bad.

Do the letters F.O. mean anything to you? Hahaha kinda reminds me of a B model site I found on the internet advertising B MODEL PARTS FOR SALE.and they were using a picture of my truck on their website. I contacted them and got a nasty response....

Hello, new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone has the diagrams for the 4 axle Mack Boxcab, otherwise known as Mack No. 3 and 4. I am interested in making a 3D model of it, and bringing it into the Trainz Railroad Simulator. If anyone has anything, my email is Trainman05@mail.com.

Thanks, TM05/MatthewB.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, if you know anyone or know of a place where I could get diagrams, please let me know.

Thanks, Trainman05/MatthewB.

Saw this little model locomotive in the museum and the truck it’s based on is sitting right outside!
