Bill Yoder of Germany has compiled a list of 3/4 inch scale live steam locomotives in North America, both American prototypes as well as Foreign prototypes.

Dear friends:
  
== The Registry ==
+
Great to have met a number of you and also the locos during August in Mass.!
 +
That also includes [[Daris A Nevil|Daris Nevil]] from Texas. It would be really neat to crash
 +
the [[Montreal Live Steamers|Montreal LS]] anniversary meet in June 2019, but the time doesn’t suit.
  
Eastern Europe,
+
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”.
  
26 December 2015
+
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.
  
Assuming there are no more than several thousand 3.5”-gauge, North American-prototype steamers around - plus foreign-prototype steam located in North America - then I think I could claim that we have begun to scratch the surface with 213 entries to date. But the entries still have all kinds of holes – only a few entries have answers to all eight questions. And some entries of course contain mistakes. I even had a 1 ½” PRR 4-4-2 in the last version of the files from the end of October!
+
Hearty Christmas greetings,
  
Of course, the entries cannot get better than the info I receive, so I will remain grateful for any and all help and info offered. Who could help out with the CV 2-10-4. for ex.? I now have the [[Charles S. Purinton|Puritons’]] [[Live Steam of Years Gone By]], but that info is not yet integrated into the text.
+
Bill Yoder
  
Wouldn’t it be neat if this effort could lead to at least a few lost engines being found in cellars and attics and returned to active service!
+
kant50(at)gmx(dot)de
  
With the very best wishes! I was just in the States for over five weeks, mostly in Florida. Do hope I will meet some of you someday. Remember: the [[Leyland Society of Model Engineers]] will be having their 3 ½”-gauge only rally up near Manchester in the UK on 24 April 2016.
 
  
A happy New Year to all,

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
