      Oh my!   That's wetter than I remember!

       

      I don't think I ever saw that picture.   But, I still have fond memories of that trip.

      I have the original un-lightened photo. Didn't even know what the photo was until I lightened it several years ago.

      I have some more from that session, some of you, and the other guys.

      Tell me how you got the photo to show. I've tried all the old tricks, even logged in via FireFox.

      TOC, I cheated!   I used the Snipping tool in Windows to screen capture it and save it to my disk, then uploaded it to my freight shed.  

      And to think my actual birthday the day before was nice and sunny and DRY.  

      I guess they just schedule rain on Fridays just for you.

      Right click the photo from the photo hosting site. "Copy image location" Paste into LCS forum. On IE I think you have to open properties first, then get the image location.

      In Flickr, right click gives you copyright info. I opened each one, copied the URL for location and pasted it. I hear Flickr has changed a bunch of stuff since I last used it three years ago, so who knows.

      Figured it out. Greg helped.

      Gotta right click the thumbnail, copy it into the forum, remove the "_s" and it shows up.

      Stupid Yahoo.

      It only rained through one Gore-tex jacket, the lat time that I was there, so I guess I got off easy.

      What's really funny is, over the years and years, the folks who make clueless comments to the effect they don't think I even have an outdoor railroad.

      You ought to see us in the snow.

      Before all the plantlife grew in, runoff was a BIG problem. We have culverts all over, feeding under lines to keep us from having washouts (which did happen).

      Anymore, none are needed...several have been removed, several are overgrown.

      I've had the pleasure (yes it's fun!) to run in the rain at TOC's. I think the rain makes it that much more interesting... Slipping on the hill, need a helper..

       

      Haven't timed a snow storm at TOC's yet, but it's on my bucket list! :)

      You heard amiss.
      What it will do is convert you to radio battery.
      Sorry.
