Tidbits from Chaski
- I spoke to Doug about his participation in the So You Want To Build A Live Steam Locomotive book last year (Fall 2007) and he said it was a LALS newsletter that started it all. I believe J.F Nelson was the club's secretary and put it together with Bill Fitt. Apparently Bill asked the club members if he could use the articles in a book, the rest is history. It was all donated materials and that no one made any money from it.
- One note on Joe Nelson’s book…. I have an original signed copy of that book and have used it many times in my work. If you know the history of that book you should know that it was first a series of articles in Live Steam Magazine. Bill Fitt compiled it into a book. I have a lot of respect for those guys back then and I still use their methods often.
