Still no luck on my end. I also can think of nothing that has changed that would cause the issue. My hope is that if something randomly changed that caused the problem, then some other random event may change it back eventually. Fingers crossed, they were some great photos.

Yeah, all the usual resets have been tried, to no avail at the moment. I'm sure it's some quirky thing that would defy reason, if I even ever figure out what's going on. In the mean time, the world keeps turning. 8)

Might check the permissions and such in your security settings to see if by some odd chance that the hosting source site of his photos got set to be blocked in your browser.

I've had that happen for no explicable reason.

Image A rarely seen "Foamite" car for fire fighting. While the tender tank held the water, the shed housed the pumps, reels of hoses, canisters of chemicals and other tools that put the car into service. There was a small fleet of these spread across the entire system.

My guess is that something you're running is set to block images from a third party domain -- the trick is to figure what is doing that. It might be your browser, it might be your proxy server, it might be your firewall, etc.

Now I know what to do next time I have an orphan tender in my shop! :wink: :wink:

Rufus, my problem was I didn't have an orphaned tender for this project. So I had scratch build the 70f70 (of some subclass) tender. I didn't have the correct f31a flat car either so I started looking for it once the tender was underway. Found one and then started the shed build. On this particular model, the tender and shed, are anchored with magnets so if I ever need the f31a for its real purpose of container car it would be easy to repurpose. I think I built this in 2008/2009.

You have good fun!

Clever on the magnet trick - like that and will have to remember it :!:
