You didn't miss anything.  I was logged in, and I still can't see any pictures.

But, try this link: https://www.facebook.com/92694309796/photos/a.10152754583414797.1073741850.92694309796/10152754583684797/?type=1&theater

I don't need one but those look really nice. It is amazing how gigantic the standard couplers look with these tiny models that FVM is producing. I'm sure it will look great coupled on the end of a train and it is just exaggerated in stand alone shots. Very nice painting and printing on these.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Yeah those are nice.  Thanks Jason. 
If there was ever validation needed for the Bowser Z Scale coupler or other alternatives, Dave's right...this is it.

Wow, those are incredible. Did these make it into CSX?
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

Since Chessie System locos and cabooses sometimes roamed down south in the SBD years prior to the CSX merger, I might be able to justify a Chessie System (B&O) wagon top caboose.

Hmmm the link worked for me.  Thanks for posting the correct link.

A few made it to 1986 or 87, though it's possible the photos I've found were taken from a dead line.  I certainly wouldn't let it stop me though.  All Chessie cabs had '90' added to the number around 1982-83 to replace 'C-.'

Daniel, I seem to recall a picture of one in the gray stealth scheme.I have no idea if it was real or photo shopped,but to be honest it wouldn't stop me from doing one.  :D
