Dear friends!

Yes, I’m not in North America now, but I did just spend the last three months mostly in Florida, where my parents reside. Got a good bit of steaming done, but it was all 7-1/2 inch.

Now we’re up to 370 locos in this 3.5-inch-gauge roster. All kinds of information holes remain. All are invited to fill in the holes or correct info.

The matter of a code designation for each loco may not be perfect yet, we may need to file and shape some more. But they are now at least alphabetized in the correct order.

Still no news on the Langworthy Hudson designated “464.NYC5297.Langworthy”.

Pat Fahey has been a significant help on issue 17-01, the first one for 2017. Thanks very much! A question, Pat: How correct is my information on the 4-6-6T I assume you still possess?

Another old request: I would really appreciate it if people publishing photos on the Internet, for ex. on the Chaski forum or Facebook, would include more info, including at least owner, builder and location.

Best regards,

Bill Yoder
