John Kurdzionak posted the following on Facebook, 14 February 2018:
- Friends Models now has available, castings for the 3/4 inch scale 4-4-2 Atlantic "Angus" by Charlie Purinton. All castings are sand-cast from original Carl and/or Charlie Purinton patterns, with the exception of the smokebox front which is by Coventry. I have also published a book that has all of Charlie's "Angus" drawings in it. It's more than 130 pages and fully details all parts. I have organized all the drawings into chapters that have page tabs for easy reference.
John announced on his website, May 2018, that the original four Wandering Locomotive Books are now permanently housed at the new headquarters of Friends Models.
