Tipple is complete! Sorry for the pic's that are not oriented correctly. Was able to rotate them in the album, but unable to get them rotated on the hard drive and uploaded rotated correctly. Had to give up for now. Also disregard the blue tape. This is used to keep the coal buckets vertical before going into temporary storage lying horizontally.

(Bad photo links edited out - see below for photos)

Again, sorry about the pic's - a real pain if you ask me! I'll have to figure this one out.

First, the URL you are using is...

http://www.mylargescale.com/1stclass/tbug/

That is incorrect. It should be...

http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/tbug/

Second, after tbug/, you're specifying a folder name twice...

Tipple/Tipple/

Looking in your first class web space, there's only one Tipple folder. In order for what you're typing to work, there would have to be a second Tipple folder within the first Tipple folder. Such is not the case.

Third, there are no photos in the Tipple folder. In fact, it's completely empty.

Thanks everyone!

Scale is 1:20.3, and loosely replicating the 75-ton Chama coal tipple. A sand tower to go alongside may be next. A water tank to go along w/ these was completed earlier in the year.

The bucket will tip, but is fixed at it's location (one down, one halfway up). I found myself building the buckets/ pulley system to function up and down too, but then decided that was getting carried away.

As far as planting outdoors, yes, that day will come further down the road when this thing called 'work' doesn't get in the way. At that point, building of the RR will commence somewhere within the 140-acres available. I'd like to be pushing dirt right now if you know what I mean! In the meantime, I build bits and pieces - and sometimes more - for when the time comes.

Again, thanks. Your words go a long way when building!
