It's happened before and is an apple thing apparently (see other threads on that).
Just looked using my laptop and the photos are fine on there.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

I'd have rather used straight medium radius points but I just didn't have the space. That said, I've had no problems with them at all and they've been down over a year. Considering they are on the main line and have fast trains running over them, I've not had anything derail.

Todays work on the layout - some back yards added to terraced houses, level crossing and road started, foundations to Lostwithiel station platforms laid and weathered and some bridge spans laid on the main line and Fowey branch.

Are those peco platform edges?

Yes they are. Peco Brick edging. I painted them completely with lifecolour weathered black acrylic, left them to dry and harden overnight then rubbed them down with fine wet-and-dry. I find this weathers the brickwork realistically.

Very nice!
Will you fill with poly filler, wood or plasticard?

I've been thinking about that. I was going to use plasticard and then use filler to fill in the joins. Any further ideas?
