Hey Tom, sounds great! Here's a link on how to post photos http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=3111&forum_id=3
As a heads up I have found that Internet explorer works with this way of posting pictures but Google Chrome doesn't, nor does Chrome allow any way of posting pics.

Sorry Tom, I wish I could help, but Safari is set up like Chrome on Free Rails, and I still haven't figured out Chrome.

After watching the video, I would not drink the water in Taiwan period.
Regarding the switches, cheap and easy project for SM32 or Gn30.:!:

Haha, ya that water was pretty foul. I'm glad you found something in the video to be a good model reference for whomever would want to take on the project.

Noticed the thread and found that the coal mine was running on 498 mm or 19" gauge. With the other gauges in Taiwan being 762mm or 30" and 1067mm or 42", I am suprised that this treasure is not discussed more ofter.
It has definately made my to model list.
Cheers,
Heath,
Ontario, Canada.

Since I cannot seem to post photos here, my loco can be viewed on Flicker by looking up tom yorke or Thomas Yorke Design Studio. It is a bit of a bother I know, and there is that "other" Tom Yorke, the rocker, to deal with, but the photos are there.

Tom-

Have you tried putting your photos on Photobucket, (free) and then clicking on the photo there and selecting the address line starting and ending with  [img]--then control C to copy, and control V to paste it into your message?

The address will show up in the window you are writing in, but if you go to "preview" the pix should show (and also in the post)

This is the way we used to have to do it, and it still works here---and in a lot of other sites-- the only disadvantage is that if you move, or delete, the pix on Photobucket, it disappears in your posted message.

I had plenty of problems trying to send photos from my computer to the gallery here when I got the new computer with Windows 7. Herb's son solved the problem, maybe you need to do this also. Click on TOOLS and then click on COMPATABILITY SETTINGS to change things so your computer will operate with the FR gallery settings. Worth a try...

As for that coal mine video, pretty cool. As for modeling ideas, single point kick switches, rotary dumpers, hoists...I don't believe any of that is possible in model form. One would have to be crazy to try.

Woodie
