Click on his post and it will open a Photobucket page with all the pics you see.  Right click on it and you will have an option to Save Image As:

Actually they want tomkat-13 to pay.  Currently possible to get images he posted, but you can't tell what you are getting. 

This is the last image posted on Tomkat-13's post  of July 10, 2016. I clicked on the image (Meter in post).  It opened image of meter in Photobucket which I right clicked and "save  image as" to my computer. 

Will not work if image has been deleted ftom Photobucket or Photobucket account closed.

Model Railroader is not associated with Photobucket and not responsible for their changing their terms of service.  They are not holding you up for money.  They are attempting to hold up tomkat-13 and the many thousands who for years have used their free photo hosting service to post images on these Forums and other web sites.   

It is currently possible to get tomkat-13's signs for free as described in my post above, but you cannot see what you are getting because of the Meter.    Once saved to your computer you can see the images, open the images and use them. 

"On June 28, 2017, Photobucket changed its Terms of Use regarding free accounts and third party hosting (hosting on forums, eBay, etc). Only the most expensive plan, at $399.99 per year, now permits third party hosting and linking to forums, etc. Which effectively alienating a very large percentage of their users, whom only used Photobucket for third-party image hosting. Photobucket made this change with no input or consultation with their current users, or the public. Adding this to photobuckets use of excessive pop-up ads, scams, clickbait advertisements, and in some cases viruses embedded in ads, the number of active account quickly decreased."   from:

Oh no Tomcat, looks like Photobucket is trying to give you a hard time. Any chance you posted these to another site or have them saved. I had some big plans with these and added the message to my favourites but that's not helping me now! thanks in advance

 I had been keeping up with them and ones that had signs that looked right for places in my modeled area I saved off so i could print them anyway. Good to see that they are in another alternate location as well, in case I missed some.

  And that has to be a first - not wanted to renew MR because of the actions of a completely independent company that has 0 to do with and 0 interest in Kalmbach or MR. And who must have completely missed the GIANT thread on alternatives to Photobucket now that they've gone nuclear.

I'm sure rwills7's other two posts in 7 years were very helpful. Looks like he is off his meds.

you're right, I panicked and hit the post button without going to the last page. Thanks everyone for the resolution. It would have been such a shame to lose these images.
