You have to use a photo hosting site.

Go to the General Discussion forum, at the top is a "sticky note" from Steve O. on how to post pictures.

I suggest not using Photobucket, they have had big issues, and my account is not back after a month.

There are plenty of others.

When I click on Your Photos under my user name in the upper right corner, I see one photo I uploaded there years ago, but no provision to add another.  Perhaps that's another feature that's disappeared.

I use Railimages, and never felt the need to use this one.

It takes an iron man to play with a toy iron horse.

If you go to the top of the page, hoover your mouse on Community, and click on Photo Galleries, you'll see tha Add Photos button.

I understood the OP asking how to post photos in the forums.

1.  Set up an account with https://imgur.com/

2.  On Imgur's page, once you have your account set up, in the upper right corner click on your username.

3.  Select images.

4.  Click the green box that says "Add Images"

5.  When your picture is uploaded to Imgur, click on the image.

6.  There will be a set of link possibilities.  Click on the "BBCode"

7.  Now, back on the railroad forum, paste the code into your post.  You won't see the picture, but when you submit your reply, the picture will appear with your post.

 

Now, all of this sounds complicated, but once you do it once or twice, it's pretty easy.

Hope to see your pictures.

Yes, on the "all images" button, there is a place to create a new album.
