Added 2 windows to both sides of the car, added cyclone vent to roof, lit car with LED's, added aditional material to top of car to match passenger cars and added rail downs side, install bathroom on 1 end and cabinets made from playmobil to other for letter sorting. Car was painted to match others

Chocho:

I'd love to look at your stuff, but when I go to the links, after a few seconds a big box pops up trying to get me to sign up.

Don't you have a way to post pictures without forcing people to join pinterest?

Nice job! Only thing I see wrong is, no people! Where is the mail clerk? (Just kidding) Thanks for the share! Keep up the good work.

Greg:

If you are on Facebook or Google Plus you already have an empty page just waiting for you to activate. If you log in with your Facebook ID (it gives you the option at the get go to sign in with FB ID) it will pick up your FB photo. You do not need to create an album, just leave it blank. (same goes for Google+) One nice thing is you can type in a search for 'Garden Railroads' and see 'zillions' of pix of other peoples GRR's. It is a very easy way of getting ideas on how to expand, build, or enhance an existing GRR. When looking at a GRR pic you like it is very easy to save to your hard drive, as well as add it to your online album. No fee, no charge, no commercial on your page, when doing a search about one in 20~30 pix will be a link to an advertizer that relates  to your search. A 'Garden Railroad' search the adverts will be from nurseries ot model train suppliers, nothing else.

Greg I like that you enjoy the pictures and thank Tom for explaining pinterest to us. I have tried to post the pictures the way garden railways wants by using their text editor but it apparently doesn't like pinterest and it was the only place I could find to save pictures. I have reached out to friend Tom for some help but haven't heard back for him yet. He, in one of his posts said something about to picture place he was using but I think he said they were going to charge. I started using pinterest because I saw where Tom had a web site and how many pictures he had stored. I'm pretty new to this computer stuff as being a WWII baby. Know how to get online and check emails but that about it, but Tom was very correct about getting on to Pinterest as you can't believe how many pictures there are, Thanks again, Bill

No facebook or Google Plus, too many annoying popups, emails and other junk. Oh well...

Facebook took a while to turn everything off, and still got notifications. Google + kept had random people trying to connect for video chat.

 

Pinterest is obnoxious to me with the brief glimpse and then the ad popping up in the middle of the screen.

 

I have enough commercials in my life that I cannot stop, these I can.

 

Anyway, not to belabor, but the invasion of personal privacy is not something I embrace, encourage, or endure well.

Sorry guys Pinterest  is the only place I know to store pictures and they wont transfer any other way to form. If anyone can suggest a different site that will transfer using the garden railway's "rich text editor" I will be very interested in it, Thanks Bill
