    Default BLWZT B&O Set

    We're jumping into the fray of making B&O content thanks to Chris' route.

    Two flatcars: the more common 50' version and the P11 40' flatcar that was being phased out in the 1950's.

    PS -- How do I get the attachments to show full size?

    Copy the thumbnail link and place it between two image tags.

    Yes I've been wondering that? My images used to show in the post but now when I go advanced and "manage attachments" the uploaded image automatically posts as a thumbnail?

    Sorry to be dense but ...How? I'm not seeing where/how in the process I can do that. I can't even access "advanced" mode if I try to edit my post.

    I can't think of an answer for the "go advanced" problem, but you have to preview your post first, and copy the links from there.

    For example, I copied the link from the first image above:

    Code:
     [IMG]https ://www.trainsim.com/vbts/attachment.php?attachmentid=74070&d=1520115658[/IMG]
    (Note: remove space in https://)

    And the result is:

    OK got that .....but I don't see where the link is when you upload an image to the forum. I got this by going to my profile, opening an attachment and copying the link from a right click on properties of the image.... SURELY there's an easier way than that?????

    EDIT :-
    Well I tried using the preview (still had to get the link from right click/properties) and that worked too.

    HOWEVER ....it never used to be that complicated? Has there been a change/update in the Forum Software I missed. The only thing I don't have "switched on" in Settings is HTML ....but frankly I don't remember having looked at that in YEARS.

    One thing that I'm not seeing is any icons above the reply pane. Didn't there used to be text formatting, insert quote, insert image etc.

    As I say I don't remember having altered any setting personally. How about you Chris?

    After I upload an image to the post it shows as a thumbnail. Then I just double click on the thumbnail and it opens an options box to choose what size, been doing it that way for years, couldn't be easier.

    Gondolas:



    Erick, thanks for your help. Seems to have worked.

    Now, a question: Is that enough gondolas? I am planning on adding a 65' gon in B&O billboard lettering.

    Working on hoppers, which will be a large fleet, probably 20 or more.
