The Registry

Eastern Europe,

Dear friends!

With the sad passing of Ken Shattock on 6 May, I have suddenly needed to revise a good number of “contact” entries.

The number of entries curve is leveling off: only 13 completely new entries since the last version in March. Now up to 383. I’m sure there are 500+ yet to go. Yes, it would be much easier to make progress if I could attend the major ¾” events in the USA. So I need the aid of other people’s eyes and ears. All kinds of information holes remain. All are invited to fill in the holes or correct info.

A few men have kindly sent along thorough reports on their locos, which is much appreciated! One of the recent ones is Larry Fisher on the 0-4-0T under the foreign-prototype entries. See: “040T.Purinton.Corwin”.

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

Another old request: I 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 of photo.

Best regards,

Bill Yoder
