Hi guys, and the ladies, too!
+
Dear friends:
  
So we’ve finally passed the 300 mark and are up to 306 locos. Of course we still have all kinds of information holes.
+
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.
  
I’ve worked my way through virtually all of Purinton’s [[Live Steam of Years Gone By]]. My apologies for the poor quality of the scans. I think I can still glean a good bit from the [[IBLS]] webpage. I realize now that this research really gets into the 1930s and 40s – ¾ inch is of course the oldest of the US’ major live steam gauges.
+
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”.
  
Who can help me out?
+
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.
  
Is this Uintah beauty by Grant 3 ½ or 4 ¾-inch gauge?
+
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.
  
[[File:Grant Uintah 2016.jpg|thumb|center|300px]]

Hearty Christmas greetings,
  
And is this 4-4-2 by Morris in CA 2 ½ or 3 ½-inch gauge?
+

This is the second edition for 2016 – there should be one or two more.
 
  
Happy summertime steaming! I hope to see the prototype-style train running in 5 inch gauge at the end of August at Gilling East in Yorkshire, UK. See: http://simongreener.com/rsme.org.uk

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
