I'm voting the problem is with some change Facebook made, not with the settings for our particular page.  I was checking the Facebook page for Boston University Academy at work (where I do not log into Facebook) and got the same error as Harold described.  At home, where I am logged into Facebook, the BUA page loads fine.
What–me worry?

Sounds like they changed the privacy setting.  It no longer is "public".

The settings on the page have not changed, the public option is still set so we hope everyone can access the page.

The Sunday evening post features news on the Miller School charter we ran last week as well as progress on the turntable and car barn.  There will not be a Thursday post as we hope everyone will have a Happy Thanksgiving with their families.

Doesn't load for me either. I'm not about to open a Facebook account. Thanks anyway, Stewart and Cindy (and anyone else who works on the Museum page) for all the great pix I did see while I could.

All the public settings were reviewed and reset tonight so if the problem continues it must be from changes made by facebook.  We will keep checking to see if there's anything else we can do.

Yes, it appears our "public" Facebook page is now public again. Another reason to give thanks this week!

One of my perennial complaints as a Facebook user is the company's continuous "tinkering" with its formats and settings. While I understand the creative impulse that no doubt motivates this activity, it can be really disorienting for the rest of us who are forced to adapt to these constant little changes.

Philip, I'm convinced those irritating changes are done by the same people who periodically strike our local supermarket and change the locations of everything. ;)

Steve, I am with you on the supermarkets.  Of course it couldn't be that I am getting 'old' and 'forgetful'.

Happy "Turkey-day" to everyone.  I am thankful that we have our wonderful Railway Museum, all the heritage equipment and most of all, all the wonderful people who share this interest.

The Thursday post includes updates on the flanging machine, views of our new milling machine and some rare night photos.
