There is an option in the uploads, (check boxes), where you can select thumbnail or full size.
I was just kidding !
I did understand. It was just seeing the photos, combined with the thought of a youthful bedroom. Which I have seen a few, (both guys and gals), that looked as though someone had tossed a hand grenade into those confines....
Having fun with the new Micro-Trains set.
Damn Mark, Where have you been? Jim
Looked nice in small size but looks better yet now. Nice homegrown logging equipment.
Yes, there are a few around. Here is one I did almost 20 years ago from a stock Atlas SD7.

Mocking up the roof of the D’Amato Lumber yard
it’s only held together with painters tape. I just repainted it since some of the paint peeled.
the amount of work needed to make a single tank SD7/9 is surprising. I am always impressed when I see one.
Railroads sometimes need low-speed power, available with six powered axles, with somewhat reduced axle loads to handle branch lines with lighter or less well maintained rails. The amount of weight savings can be quite surprising. Other tricks of the trade include reducing sand capacity. CN did that with a number of GP9s and RS18s.
And that's quite a nice modeling job! Very impressive.
Let's see if this works: I just added a public Facebook photo album of my visit to National Train show yesterday:
Hope it works, if it does, enjoy! Note there are videos near the end of the 200+ photos.
Nope. Says you have to log in.
Unfortunately, "Public" on Facebook means "Anyone on Facebook" and not just anyone on the internet. You can limit it to a "Group" or just Facebook friends but not ever make it available to the internet as a whole.
Hmmm..... it worked for me!
Thank you John for sharing with us those photos and videos from the show. It was especially great to see Bruce's TTRAK setup as I have been following his building of those for some time.
I understand. I am also working on a PBase album that won't require a login, but I won't get that fully loaded until tonight at earliest. Here's work in progress, it's not done yet:
Here's a HO Gulf & Western shot (club from Corpus Christi, TX) - great scenery
I dunno... a hand grenade would at least clear out the immediate blast area. LOL
Taken last Saturday at the Livingston Model Railroad club. Ran a short mixed train that night. A combine, coach and a few freight cars. Here's the train picking up passengers. Sorry about the quality, crappy lighting.
That cut out roof section is a neat idea!
