Unfortunately the Flickr alternative was not a viable option to host a personal archive on. Two days ago they have deleted more than half of the pictures (even the stuff I don't have anymore). According to their guidelines only pictures taken personally by you can be uploaded there, and you can upload photography only. That means no magazines, no brochures, no technical data pages, no stamps, no nothing. And they use this batch remover called Pixsy that constantly looks for duplicates all around the web and issues takedowns for the pictures, even if I clearly mentioned they're not hosted for commercial purpose, I wasn't selling them or anything. So I don't know what to do now or which platform to use for identification/archiving, etc. The previous platform (Imgbb) was very buggy and unstable and hard to organize properly and I don't think I want to go back to that, so the project is on hold.

Hello Kegare, this is very sad. I can help you with the photos, I copied them nearly all. Not your text.
When you need a private website, then I can offer mine.
Hope you will find a solution! Can imagine you are disappointed. But we must continue the good work!

Hello 93TBG,

about the Pyongyang 951, the service truck. I have seen seven different registrations: Pyongyang 40-1668, Pyongyang 40-1669, Pyongyang 40-1671, Pyongyang 40-1672, Pyongyang 40-1876, Pyongyang 40-1877, (incomplete)47-59.
Here some other pictures.

I am trying to figure out the differences between the minibuses named Jipsan (or Jipsam) and Pyongyang.
I can identify (100%) the next minibuses:
Pyongyang 77 (Pyongyang 53-1421, C-46-974)
Pyongyang 82 (Pyongyang 53-1107, Pyongyang 39-1284, 66302-6241)
Pyongyang 86 (stamp of 1992)
Jipsan 88 (stamp of 1992, Pyongyang 39-1134, Pyongyang 39-1238)
Questions:
are the Pyongyang buses made in Chongjin or in Pyongyang? If in Pyongyang, made by the Pyongyang Trolleybus Works or by another factory?
Is it possible that some are made both in Chongjin and in Pyongyang, for instance the 82?

Erik, I'd like to add some notes. This vehicle is a ZiU-682 made in USSR and is not North Korean: https://www.chinesecars.net/content/unknown-service-vehicle-platform
Just to make this clear, this bus wasn't made since 2015, it was only photographed in 2015: https://www.chinesecars.net/content/rungnado-5101
Going by the name, it is a 51-seat Huanghai bus made in Juche 101 (2012).
This truck was made during the Chollima Movement ~1958 and is one of the very first Sungri 58s: https://www.chinesecars.net/content/sungri-58-built-headlights

I need an identification platform that can hold up to 3000 pictures with folder organizing, tags and search engine indexing, a platform that isn't Flickr. Any ideas?

While I'd like to believe this is a North Korean trolley, this structurally matches a ZiU trolley and does not match anything else I have and/or have observed so far. I actually think it is one and it's been crudely rebuilt. We are talking scrapyard quality here. Leaving aside the assumption that this trolley has an almost non-existing pillar between the windows and the doors making it structurally unstable, please observe the window setup closely and the rest of the details, including roof shape. That's why I believe the rear doors have simply been re-positioned after rebuilding (or rather hammering) it, otherwise I wouldn't make this connection. The space between the rear windows and the rear of the trolley is too long, hence my conclusion.

imgur.com? It's free, it does folders and tags. Don't know about search engine indexing.

I'll look into it, thanks. Always used imgur but never had an account there. I thought you meant imgbb at first, which was my previous platform and super buggy. The other option appears to be neocities. I will get back to this thread once I make a decision.

Hello 93TBG,

about the Pyongyang 951, the service truck. I have seen seven different registrations: Pyongyang 40-1668, Pyongyang 40-1669, Pyongyang 40-1671, Pyongyang 40-1672, Pyongyang 40-1876, Pyongyang 40-1877, (incomplete)47-59.
Here some other pictures.
Hi! Thanks for the help, the side photo is gold!
There seemed to be 39-1423,39-1424 and 39-1439 on pre 2009 photographs.
Although they don't appear later so I think they got different registrations after. (40- don't appear before 2009 either.)
Also as well as 40-1877 there is 40-1677.
Is the *47-59 photographed in pyongyang or they were in other towns too?

Well the registration is 평양 so I'd guess it's an old picture of Pyongyang taken before modernization. I've never seen those buses outside the capital.

Does anyone have a rear view of the soft top Kaengsaeng 85? I want to see how the rear is different from the hardtop version. Where does the '85' name come from?
