It took about a 30-45 sec to load for me, but no problem since I have cable & updated RAM
(thanks to my better half on the latter)

GREAT PIC! Is that Larry's Truck Electric in McDonald? If it is, I plan on using them for my base idea
modelling my DDDX loco rebuilding complex on the future layout. (In the meantime plans are to
reletter some old locos in that scheme, & oh did I mention? they also do car rebuilding/re-leasing
too (off layout somewhere) like GACX. (An idea a fellow modeler in Mexico & I came up with)

I got some good railfanning in at Sterling today-& got to meet Steve (SAH) who stopped by to
say hello & check things out (come back soon Steve-you missed some serious "action" after you
left!) I'll post pics when I get the chance the next day or two,

Yep that is LTEX in McDonald, the engine house is under the bridge (ex. Youngstown & Northern)

I don't plan to post these photos (way too big), but thought it would be cool to be able to link to them. The panoramic views make you feel like you are standing there yourself (on top of a SW1500 :-X )

That looks curiously like my workbench!

There's something oddly appealing about graveyards... :P

Now that I'm on DSL it didn't take long at all to load, but it is so big I can only see tiny portions at once. So tiny at times you can't figure out what you're looking at with scrolling!

The photos are great...
But there's a such thing as re-sizing.  :-\

Chris you had to be using some sort of fancy wide angle lens to get that photo! That's precisely the problem with that type of photo...I thought I examined the large photo fairly closely and totally missed the 44-tonner!  :o

Chris, I saw that 44 tonner once 3rdrail mentioned it (Mr."Observant" here)
& it had me wondering if it was the one I caught on a flat car last December
at Sterling going east. I did some "pic comparison" & it doesn't appear to be.
So I'm still clueless as to identity/coming from/going to-any idea folks?

It is probably best to save the photo in your computer and look at it that way, did you check out the others in my second post? It asks me to save them for some reason, but they are just photos.

Just wondering...why does the big photo load up every time I view this page? I though once you "saw" a page, it was in your computer.  ???


Mitch,

No number on it to look up. 44T a go go at this place:

Those other photos don't seem to have extensions on them so explorer doesn't know what to do.  If  you save them to your computer, you'll have the same problem unless you add .jpg to the end.

If you're using explorer, then your browsing settings are probably set to "automatic".  I'm not sure what the rules are, but something like the clock changing may be enough for explorer to think it's a new page each time and reload.  If you change the setting to "never", you should see a difference (not that you should keep it that way, but just to try).
