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 six 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 believe I have all the locos entered finally which were copied out of Cap Purinton’s old albums at Waushakum last August. That puts us up to 558 total.
  
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.
+
I repeat: Removing the glitches and errors is a constant task – I’m always happy for any and all additions and corrections. I had some trouble creating PDF files this time and it looks like the photos turn out darker with some PDF-softwares. Apologies.
  
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!
+
One big question for this time: This very nice CN 6218 appeared on the “Classic Canadian Nation” Facebook page on 5 March. It is now reportedly at the “Quebec Model Railroad Society” in the city of Quebec. Is she 3 1/2” gauge, and is she indeed live steam? Who knows? She needs to be that to qualify for our site.
  
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.

Richard Symmes of Beverly MA responded almost immediately that this model was made from wood and cardboard by [[Wilbur T. Frey]] of Vermont and later, Arizona. Frey “built over 200 steam loco models during a 40-year period. They were not to scale, but based on visual ‘measure’ from photos sent to him.” One can find more via [https://www.google.com/search?q=wilbur+t+frey+gallery+of+locomotives Google].
  
A happy New Year to all,

Dear friends:

I believe I have all the locos entered finally which were copied out of Cap Purinton’s old albums at Waushakum last August. That puts us up to 558 total.

I repeat: Removing the glitches and errors is a constant task – I’m always happy for any and all additions and corrections. I had some trouble creating PDF files this time and it looks like the photos turn out darker with some PDF-softwares. Apologies.

One big question for this time: This very nice CN 6218 appeared on the “Classic Canadian Nation” Facebook page on 5 March. It is now reportedly at the “Quebec Model Railroad Society” in the city of Quebec. Is she 3 1/2” gauge, and is she indeed live steam? Who knows? She needs to be that to qualify for our site.

Richard Symmes of Beverly MA responded almost immediately that this model was made from wood and cardboard by Wilbur T. Frey of Vermont and later, Arizona. Frey “built over 200 steam loco models during a 40-year period. They were not to scale, but based on visual ‘measure’ from photos sent to him.” One can find more via Google.
