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.

Dear friends!

In order to decrease file size, I have turned the three files into seven. Pickings were thin this time until Pat Fahey published extensive files on Bill Van Brocklin’s locomotives on the IBLS website. So we’re now up to 415 entries. Much more could be done yet on North American-prototype stuff in the UK and the Commonwealth in general.

A few men continue to send along thorough reports on their locos, which is much appreciated!

An 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.

I will be in Florida from mid-October to the end of November, just in case that helps anyone with the sending of info.

Best regards,

Bill Yoder
