The Registry

Russia, Kaliningrad region

5 January 2024

Dear friends:

This is the first update of the directory since 30 November 2022. I have no news regarding Chuck Balmer’s 6-8-6 PRR turbine. It was featured and on the cover of the May/June 2023 issue of “Live Steam”.

We’re now up to 693 locos – nine more than last time. I’ve also updated 20-or-so files. I always appreciate it when I’m sent new info or corrections – that always improves the quality of the registry. I glean some info from the two 3 ½” sites on Facebook.

Newbies this time include a South African 4-6-2 in British Columbia. Greg Easter’s Kozo D&RGW 2-8-2 is now nearly complete. Both are narrow-gauge. Hewitson’s CP 4-8-4 from 1946 is running well, perhaps for the first time ever.

A piece of “important” trivia: Of the 46 Virginias listed, seven have outside valve gear. An attractive addition – they’re not what the doctor (designer LBSC) ordered. Four of the 11 Challengers and Big Boys listed are in the UK.

All the best for 2024, may world peace arrive soon,

Bill Yoder
