- It is with great sadness that I am reporting that Bill Conner has passed away this morning. Bill has been a member (of Mid-South Live Steamers) for many years and has shared his wisdom on steam engine building with fellow MSLS members. His design and construction of 50+ Conner Beam Engines and articulated engines is outstanding. They are widespread including two engines in Germany. He was a great friend to many of us and I will miss him greatly.
