Dear friends:
 
Dear friends:
  
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!
+
I wasn’t very productive since the last issue at the end of December: two computers broke down, the demands of work, etc. I only added about 45 locos, we’re now up to 257. I understand now too that a lot of information holes can only be plugged by someone hitting the major 3/4 inch meets in North America and asking a bunch of questions. I can do some of that in the UK, but I would need partners in North America to make significant progress. There was some help after the December edition, and I want to thank the helpers for that.
  
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.
+
As stated before: I now have the Puritons' "[[Live Steam of Years Gone By]]", but that info is not yet fully integrated into the text.
  
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!

These files will again appear on the [[IBLS]] webpage, so no one really needs to receive a personal copy from me.
  
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.

Dear friends:

I wasn’t very productive since the last issue at the end of December: two computers broke down, the demands of work, etc. I only added about 45 locos, we’re now up to 257. I understand now too that a lot of information holes can only be plugged by someone hitting the major 3/4 inch meets in North America and asking a bunch of questions. I can do some of that in the UK, but I would need partners in North America to make significant progress. There was some help after the December edition, and I want to thank the helpers for that.

As stated before: I now have the Puritons' "Live Steam of Years Gone By", but that info is not yet fully integrated into the text.

These files will again appear on the IBLS webpage, so no one really needs to receive a personal copy from me.

Remember: the Leyland Society of Model Engineers will be having their 3-1/2 inch-gauge only rally near Manchester in the UK on 24 April 2016. See you there!

Bill Yoder
