Spent some time JFRT tonight. The Pi cooperated, and I had fun running laps with two trains.



I also got my new DCC equipped MRC 4-4-0. I hooked up my Strasburg cars and had a "happy place" moment, despite the crappy MRC sound system.

Well, since Photobucket decided a few days ago to take all my photos hostage for the ransom of $400 per year, efectively destroying this thread, now seems as good a time as any to fess up. The Transcontinental PRR is coming down. I'm switching to HO for all the incredible PRR prototype models that are available.



:D Just kidding, well about the switch to HO anyway. Our house is getting prepped for sale, and part of that is going to involve cleaning out the basement. I'm going to salvage as much as I can, and I'm pretty optimistic about how much I'll be able to take with me. One of our requirements in finding a new place is to find a suitable location for a decent sized Transcontinental PRR 2.0. Back to the old drawing board, as it were! I just need to determine what size and shape space I'll have to work with. I'm thinking that space is probably going to take the form of an out-building of some kind. Won't hurt my feelings to get the odors and noise into a different structure. That would also open up the possibility of open houses without having to trudge people through the house.

I'll post some photos from the deconstruction as it progresses, but for now, here's the last versions of the plans before being abandoned. The upper level trackage was finished except for the coach yard and engine terminal. Altoona was the only part of the lower level to be built.

Upper level:

Eric, I think you will find that you have exceeded your free limit of 2GB on Photobucket

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min.

Ron-

Nope. They're destroying content all over the internet. From their new terms of service (for reference, they call embedding a hosted image on another site, such as this forum "third party image hosting"):

Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.

Ad-free Account : The Ad-free Account offers Members the ability to use the Site without seeing any third party banner advertisements when logged into your Ad-free Account (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts and you will continue to see Photobucket offers and announcements). This account level is available for $2.49 / month, payable by the Member on a monthly recurring basis.

Plus Account : The Plus Account offers several paid options that may give the Paying Member more storage, bandwidth, 3rd party image hosting, image linking and/or other services as outlined below. Once and during such period of time in which you subscribe to and pay for a Plus Account, we will consider you a "Paying Member." Please note that all Plus Account subscriptions are billed annually at the commencement of the service. Photobucket may also offer a monthly billing option for its Plus Accounts (see terms and restrictions, below).

Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:

o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.

A sad thing indeed Eric & I/we hope the rebuilt railroad gets started shortly in its new home.

Hi Eric,
Unfortunately, I've missed all the action but I do hope to see everything from the beginning with Mk2!
Commiserations on the abandonment but good luck for the move.
John.
