That's a nice collection. Just some advice...if you want your picture to show up on here instead of a link, click the insert image tab, then paste in the Direct Link on Imgur. Took me a while to figure out.

It works...just posted this. On Imgur, in your image gallery, click on the image you want to post. On the right hand side, there's a list of links. Click "copy" on the direct link. Then, go to your reply ( it's good to work with two tabs open) and paste it in the image url box on the insert image tab. Maybe you closed the tab or something? If necessary, I can get screencaps of the process.

OK, gotta start some where so I'll to some of the trains I've been working on from the last 2 junk batches, had pretty good luck with these, unlike the batch before that that was a total bust, not much to salvage or even worse to tinker with! So there were 4 Lionels in there, all the motors were good, parts missing, broken clips & such, After a few good hours I managed to get 3 running pretty good, short a few parts for the 4th
3 on the left the others are AHM still workin on that chassis it just won't co-operate

Awesome. I'm going to call for you to be banned just out of jealousy. That's some seriously interesting stuff. If you look back at old threads, you'll see I've been trying to get just one Lionel FA chassis that runs.
JNXT 7707: I'm in the odd position of needing to root for the Cowboys tonight. How distasteful

mph: Well, Jerry all of the Cowboys fans know who to blame for the loss.
Nov 11, 2019 7:35:56 GMT -5
rbturner: Jerry, are you OK this morning?
Nov 11, 2019 9:58:27 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I do what I can, Mark Yes Randy I'm OK - I had a doctor's appt. early today. Then we had to go to Wal-Mart, which wasn't that bad because it's right beside Cowboy's Stadium. Brings back fond memories
Nov 11, 2019 11:03:58 GMT -5
rbturner: Weather for central Ohio; unseasonably cold with 1-3 inches of ****.

JNXT 7707: We started out this morning in the 60s - supposed to be in the 20s tonight. I don't care where you are, that's cold!
Nov 11, 2019 12:13:41 GMT -5
oldtimer52: God, yesterday it was in the 70's and today it's nose diving into the 20's. And the wind chill is heading for the single digits. That's cold.
Nov 11, 2019 14:58:20 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: That is cold, OT. I've been in Texas so long anything under 40 is cold to me
Nov 11, 2019 16:06:50 GMT -5
burlington77: Light snow this morning and cold. Lows tonight in the single digits, currently 16 degrees. Fortunately this is Missouri, so the temps are expected to be back in the 50's this weekend.
Nov 11, 2019 20:53:19 GMT -5
rbturner: It's snowing like mad here. Luckily the ground was fairly warm and it is melting right away. For now.
Nov 11, 2019 21:09:36 GMT -5

rbturner: My first job out of high school was outside work primarliy. The question was asked once; "how cold does it have to be for us to come in"? The answer; "when the tears freeze to your face".
Nov 12, 2019 17:57:04 GMT -5
rbturner: And we worked all day with no Internet or texting.
Nov 12, 2019 17:57:39 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Sometimes I'll look back on this or that, something we did or somewhere we traveled - before the internet - and I'll wonder "how did we ever figure out how to do that?"

yardmaster54: As far as getting from here to there, there was piece of paper called a map. Also you could stop at a gas station or a carryout(a small grocery store) for directions.
Nov 12, 2019 19:59:47 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: "Maps". I remember them!
