<p>So many color variations on that small trailer. I had no idea. I have 2 later version red trailers like the lower right. I also have one dark blue one with fat tires you don't show and also an orange trailer, both Middle early with the rivet showing and wire tow bar. It seems original to me and in pretty good shape too.

It could use a good cleaning though.

Very nice, I will have to see if I can enlargen the pages so I can read them.

Do a right click on the picture as it is presented to us on the forum, it will open in a new tab.

Then click on the three black lines at top right of your screen in the browser bar and a window will drop down showing many options.

There will be a zoom function so just keep clicking on the + sign to enlarge the image and then you can read it.

Thanks for that note Kevin. It works for me by double left clicking the picture.

It opens in a Postimage window and will only zoom in once. That is one of the problems with using Postimage. Can't get to the original, just the Postimage uploaded picture. Besides it is all in Dutch.

Don't left click on the picture at all, you do a right click and it opens in a new window, not the postimage one.

Well, I don't get that at all. Right click and I get to choose from a long list so I pick "Open link in new window" and I got directly to postimage. If I choose open in new tab I get the same. Once a picture is posted here, from my experience, you only get the Postimage page of the photo, nothing else. It does not take me anywhere else as it does not know where the picture originated. It just shows what it knows, that Jan up loaded it to Postimage and then posted it here. I have tried any number of ways so maybe it is my browser but I don't think so. I user Firefox.
Here is what I do.


and where it takes me.

I can Save As on the image and put it on my desktop. Then with Picture Manager I can zoom up to 800% if I wish. That way it works for me.

There you go, in the first picture it is the 9th option down 'View Image' is what you need to left click on.

Yes, that gives me a picture of the posted picture on a black back ground. No controls but if I hold the Ctrl Key and use my mouse wheel I can zoom pretty large up to I can only see a small portion of the page. There are no controls to zoom with or do anything else with. That is why I save as and then edit or zoom or what ever in Picture Manager.
