Re: Ft Wayne Bass & Hadley Roundabout

Yeah, that might work. But I was thinking more about something that accurately captured the administrations sentiment to the city as a whole, and not just towards the well monied upper crust. You know....something that gives the common folk a sense of connection.

Re: Ft Wayne Bass & Hadley Roundabout

Maybe they will put in some benches and a $300,000 statue, and designate the Hadley roundabout as a "railfan park".
Considering the train count that goes through there, that seems so "Fort Wayne"

Re: Ft Wayne Bass & Hadley Roundabout

If the cheese heads running the show can spend your money now, to create the opportunity to collect even more property taxes at a future date...that seems to clear all the hurdles for a "win-win",....for them, anyway. :shock:

Re: Ft Wayne Bass & Hadley Roundabout

First, this project has done next to nothing to actually INCREASE that section of road's ability to handle more traffic (which if not now will soon be BADLY needed, AND that it was done with seemingly no regard whatsoever to the people that actually need to use that road. The attitude seems to be t...

Re: Wabash Indiana

I've always wondered how many distinct projects went into building that bridge as it currently stands. 3 for sure, most likely more.

Just make sure to save your edited file as a jpg file.
If it gets saved as a RAW file you will not be able to use your regular jpg editor.
Or, save it as a *.png file, and avoid the *hack hack hack* in image quality.

Avoiding the .jpg compression altogether would be my first preference.

Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

I readily acknowledge that "you get what you pay for"....and all that goes along with it. I'm using an old Kodak Z-650 that I bought at a Salvation Army store for $18 ten years ago. So I don't have a lot of room to complain. I'm definitely getting my $18 worth. But, it's a 6 MP camera....which osten...

Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

I've always hated the "jpg only" compression in my own digital camera...wish there was a way I could select a trade off between storage capacity and image quality. If I could make such a choice I think I would gladly move to a lossless compression method, and forego the ability to carry 1000+ images...

Not QUITE Allen County, but close. 12/16/18 CR E1100N Huntington County, NS Wabash MP 159. With the sun quickly setting, a westbound manifest hustles down the line. I like that photo. I notice from the milepost that the location is only 11 miles from the point where this line crosses the St Marys r...

Re: Comment and question

Bob, your image looks much more believable than mine. The total absence of smoke coming out of the chimney on my photo makes me suspect it might be photochopped. Just found the image on the net several years ago, got no idea about it's history.

Good Luck, Mike
So, what happens at 10? Are we given an option to delete old attachments to make room for new, or what?

Do you have the story on the burning caboose? I have a burning caboose story of my own from Chicago.
I wish I did, but I don't. I think that "flaming caboose" is a metaphor among some groups. :twisted:

Re: Comment and question

Can someone else other that Bob try doing a post with a picture to see if it will work ? I did respond to the ND&W post and was able to add a number of photo's without issue. Bob can you try posting a different picture ? Mike 93.9 kb....... trying to attach locally, tells me that "0 is the maximum"...

Re: Comment and question

I still cannot post any attachments. It tries to load the picture and then it gives me a little warning triangle. When I click on the triangle, it says this: Error Cannot add another attachment, 0 is the maximum. Anyone have any ideas? Try using a remote image hosting service such as imgur, like I ...
