This forum software is just plain weird. The "click the small image to enlarge" thing occurred spontaneously a few months ago and I have no idea why. I have asked two web experts if it's possible to upgrade this software or switch to another and both say it would be a huge and expensive job and we'd lose everything in the process. (In other words, we'd be starting from scratch.)

Yet again I apologize yet for the limitations of our software. My longtime web guru has just retired, by the way, and he switched us to a different and more expensive web host (server). The image thing occurred long before the transfer.

That aside, your little tram loco is starting out adequately. I look forward to watching it come together.

Hi Barney, it's great to be able to follow the construction of the small mine locomotive.
