It was very kind that Cap Purinton loaned me four of the old photo albums
 +
during the [[Waushakum Live Steamers|Waushakum meet]] last August. I haven’t listed all the locos I
 +
noticed in those files yet – I still have 10 or so to go. But I wanted to
 +
have this updated version out before the end of the year. This is only the
 +
third version this year, note the code “18-03”.

Perhaps a few things now make more sense: I think both of the

standard-gauge-style 2-4-4T’s were built by [[Gene Stevens]] in the 1930s-40s.

Removing the glitches and errors is of course a constant task – always

helpful for any and all additions and corrections.
  
Dear friends:
+
In the files I have changed my eMail from “web.de” to “gmx.de” as seen
 +
below. Not a big deal; I use three-four addresses total and nothing needs to
 +
be sent double.
  
The number of files is still increasing: now 14 files up from 7 last time. I think that is better; I am committed to keeping file size down. We’re now up to 457 entries. Among those are 48 4-4-0’s and 4-6-4’s each as well as 43 4-8-4’s. We have 34 4-6-2’s. 77 of the entries are foreign-prototype, which amounts to 17%.

Hearty Christmas greetings,
  
A few men really got up-to-bat this time and helped: Eric Lagemann, Pat Hosford and Larry Fisher, for ex. Also, as always, Pat Fahey. I appreciate very much that Montreal’s Jim Leggett posts a good bit of stuff on Facebook. Of course, all kinds of room remains for improvements in these files.

I am still listing 4-6-6T’s ahead of 4-6-2’s and 4-6-4’s. I think that makes sense size-wise, for a 4-6-4T or a 4-6-6T is really only a snazzy Ten-Wheeler. But it doesn’t make sense in terms of numbers and I am planning to change this. Number-wise, 4-6-6T should come after 4-6-2 and 4-6-4.

An old request: I appreciate it if people publishing photos on the Internet, for ex. on the [https://www.chaski.org/homemachinist/ Chaski] forum or Facebook, would include more info, including at least owner, builder and location of photo.
 
  
Best regards and all the best for the New Year. May God grant our world peace,

The Registry

Gvardeysk/Russia,

10 December 2018

Dear friends:

Great to have met a number of you and also the locos during August in Mass.! That also includes Daris Nevil from Texas. It would be really neat to crash the Montreal LS anniversary meet in June 2019, but the time doesn’t suit.

It was very kind that Cap Purinton loaned me four of the old photo albums during the Waushakum meet last August. I haven’t listed all the locos I noticed in those files yet – I still have 10 or so to go. But I wanted to have this updated version out before the end of the year. This is only the third version this year, note the code “18-03”.

Perhaps a few things now make more sense: I think both of the standard-gauge-style 2-4-4T’s were built by Gene Stevens in the 1930s-40s. Removing the glitches and errors is of course a constant task – always helpful for any and all additions and corrections.

In the files I have changed my eMail from “web.de” to “gmx.de” as seen below. Not a big deal; I use three-four addresses total and nothing needs to be sent double.

Hearty Christmas greetings,

Bill Yoder
