    Hello,

    This may be a new person question, but if we see a pic we like in the Random Media or media area, such as a locomotive being customised, is there a way to get from that picture to the post the picture was originally in so that we can get the full story of the pic?

    Thanks,
    Detroit.

    Unfortunately there is no reverse linking method. :( I, too, would now and then like to chase down a topic. But...

    Also, many of the pictures are not linked to anything. They might simply be stored. And, some are linked outside of TrainBoard/RailImages.

    Many times I open up the Google search page, click on "images" and then drag and drop the full image or the thumbnail of the photo in the box. Google will do an internet search on the image and many times finds it in a article that references it. This is just a screen shot so does not work.

    Try this link.

    When you drag the image over to the middle the drop box opens up.

    Hello, thanks for the replies.

    In a way it's nice to know there isn't a link there, I thought I was going blind and missing something obvious!
    Google image search is a good idea, thank you Mr Straw.

    Thanks,
    Detroit.
