Check out this post: https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=38750.msg470054#msg470054
The attachments are still in the post but aren't showing up.  They were set up to be inline full size images.
This is not the first time I have seen this problem. It seems to happen after the server migration.

Looks like I might be able to re-add those attachments by clicking    [Insert Attachment 1 in the message] for each attachment, but I left it as is so hopefully you can find a way to fix this without members having to re-attach attachments in their older (pre-migration) posts.

This is just a fluke, right? I thought I got everything but possibly some that were posted that week didn’t make it.

The posts in question are much older than  last week.  And like I said, the attachments are still in the posts but somehow they got disconnected from the in-text code to display them.  Try t edit the post I pointed you too and expand the attachment section. The photos are still there but unlinked.

This is the 2nd older post of mine with this problem. I used "report this post" link with the other one to let the admins know that there was a problem with attachments. Since this is the 2nd time I see this problem, I figured that I would use the Admin section of the forum to notify the admins.  I don't know if other older posts of mine with attached photos have this problem or not.  No problms with posts that use photos uploaded to the Gallery - just with photos attached to the posts.

I tried to re-add those embedded attachments to the post (so they are visible) and I was unable to do it. Like I said, they are still embedded in the post, but aren't  shown when the post is viewed.

I looked through other posts I have with embedded potos and while many display properly, there is one more post  same problem I described above. It is:

I wonder if you could do some admin magic to make those attachments show up as photos in the post.

I'll look into it.  It could be that there was an FTP issue when I migrated the images and a few got corrupted.
