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.
rbturner: Many years ago I built a Budweiser Clydesdale, 8 horse hit w/ wagon. It sat on a cobblestone base. I painted each cobblestone individually with various earth tone colors. It looked great but was a real job.

frankenstein: Why get stalled? Things like that have a great variation to them, and are largely interpretive.

ZeldaTheSwordsman: Because I needed to be sure the cobblestones weren't completely off the wall before proceeding to the weathering stage of painting the base. I know there's a lot of variation, but I was worried I had still managed to goof it up

methuener: My B&O Pratt Street layout will be all street running and all cobblestones. I'm going with paper sheets with cobblestones printed from photo images.

eilif: Is there a topic where we share our collection of rolling stock from other member's freelanced railroads? I've got a BC&E on the way that will join equipment from JNXT, NMN, and JFI, it'd be nice to have a specific place to share this stuff.
Aug 12, 2019 8:29:48 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I don't think there is one, or a specific place for that - but just create one under "Gone to Beans Coffee Shop" I'd say. Sounds like it could be fun!
Aug 12, 2019 8:42:50 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I've also acquired a small handful of mystery freelance roads from train shows, done with such care that I can't think of stripping them.

John: JNXT, Don't want the cars but would like to see the pictures. Please!

John: I guess I will never understand the romantic nostalgia that is felt about Woodstock. I grew up in that era. Woodstock seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy than a music festival. I guess I was a Red Neck then too.

rbturner: John; AMEN.
Aug 16, 2019 12:06:03 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I second that. I do like some of the music but the event itself was a disaster. It has improved over the years though, like a fine hippie wine

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Just heard Canned Heat for the first time. Sounds like pretty good blues work. The Dead are on in a few hours!

pokemonprime: "seemed more like a Drunken Roman Orgy" yep I think that's why some people went.

mph: WARNING: Another flamingo escaped! Be alert, it could show up anywhere.

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Are there no fences strong enough or tall enough to contain these birds of destruction?
Aug 19, 2019 20:18:07 GMT -5
mph: Nothing that I can find. I may have to try something drastic and build a mote filled with Fogite - that will stop anything, right?
