Whilst I'd also prefer to see the photos directly in the thread, I have no problem with a single click to get to the pictures you're showing.
For me, the issue is that you're linking to the front page
of your website each time. This is a problem for two reasons:
1) The photos aren't on that page, you have to click through to the gallery.
2) Once you put up a different gallery, which one are we supposed to be looking at?!
If you insist on linking, it would be better to provide the permalink to the gallery you're actually trying to showcase, like this:http://photosbymay.fotopic.net/c1898731.html
All that aside, I love seeing more garden railways! I'm quietly biding my time until I'm able to (read: SWMBO lets me) start one myself, so in the meantime I'm vicariously living it through everyone else's photos
I see yours is a raised track-bed style. Do you find that a problem with stepping over it? Or is it running around the edges?
