"Please show another short train."

My recreation of a NYC PAX (passenger train) from a photo on George Elwood's Fallen Flags website.

How about another short passenger train?

.

The STRATTON AND GILLETTE is using an 0-6-0 to move this Railway Post Office car to another location where it is needed to replace one that was taken out of service.

.

.

Show me a storage tank that holds any liquid, vapor, or gas.

Well, the pick-up truck in the foreground is probably in the most trouble, but a delayed train is in trouble, too...

Please show us an enclosed freight or passenger car, or locomotive or caboose, with an open door/window/roof hatch, etc.

Two open doors here, the elevator worker is standing in an open door talking to a farmer about why there is never any grain in the car when it gets to the coast, even if the door is closed properly.

Please show me more open doors, windows etc.

NVSRR if you use the icon that looks like a mountain and moon, that is the picture icon.  With links ending in JPG we see a picture

Coyotes?

That what I did.  It initially posted fine,  then two minutes later it vanished.   Did the exact same thing on the other post.

But — he's using Flickr.

Use the "share" icon, click BBCode and copy. Skip the picture icon in MR and paste the link directly into the text window. Be sure you have viewing options set as "public".

There may be an issue with this Forum, as many of my pictures from photobucket show in preview, but disappear when posted.  I've not had that problem elsewhere.

yeahbut he managed to post a link that actually ended in a picture format, so I gave him the simplest idea rather than tell him where to look for the share arrow.

I do it like you do in Flickr.

Since my freelanced home roads don't own any switchers, we lease them from our interchange partners, in this case, the CNR...

...of course, it's not unusual to see home-road locomotives doing industrial switching, too, even though they're technically not switchers, like this little Mogul...

Show us some of your locomotive crewmembers, please.
