David, the link works for me. I have the image in the Google and Amazon cloud servers and the ability to add it to my private website but don't know how to get it to the Forum in image form. Any ideas?

I'm glad I have nothing better to do with my time, today!  :D My posts must be an annoyance, though, so please accept my apologies and I promise to improve my behavior.

I got into my google account then the file couldn’t be found.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I'll try to post another link and see what happens. This one is an image of the road incline leading up to what will be a short tunnel. Adjoining the road beyond the tunnel will be my girder bridge passing over three rails on the eastern end of the station yard. The incline has been cast for setting in place after the tunnel and girder bridge are in place.

I've attempted to post an open image in the Forum from two external sites - Google Photos and my personal website. My code writing skills are not up to speed, and I've no idea how Flickr works. So I've had to give up. Our son is visiting from Somerset and I don't have time to work it out, now. Maybe by the time I'm able to post again, the Forum will be functioning more like the old version.

One last post - for a while. The image below shows the two road crossings at Westbury in the '50's/'60s. You can see the tunnel portal and to the left the girder bridge. Today, the tunnel has been filled in, but then there was probably 60-100 feet between the bridges. I have just enough room for the tunnel portal and the girder support. A little silly looking, I think, but, what can I do? Martin might tell us the history, but I suspect the tunnel was originally rather longer and carried the original rail line to Reading. When the line was re-build, the tunnel line was left for a siding (maybe even a goods station - as I'm modeling it). The land on either side of the road was mined, which explains the two ponds.

Hello Leon

I had this message as well.  After some fiddling around I worked out how to resize the picture.  Not in dimensions but in the amount of 'pixels' used by the computer to produce the image.  This has worked - there are now several photographs posted this way on my Poppingham thread.  Maybe worth a try?

Best wishes.

John

Leon - if you can open your picture with 'Paint' then click on 'resize' on the top menu and select the 'pixels' option. I altered the top value to 2500 and the lower one defaulted to 1875. I saved the picture and then loaded as usual into the 'Gallery'. It all worked very well yesterday.
