Gettin Up With Speed TRENE


| November/December 1970



Speed steam engine

It doesn't seem possible this is the Nov.-Dec. issue. At this writing it is only the middle of September and only a few steam reunions left on the agenda. Before we get turned around it will be time to plan the shows for next season.

At this time I want to thank all of you who helped us out by taking subscriptions and selling books. You did a marvelous job.

We made it to the Kinzer show and I helped Mrs. Elmer Schaefer in selling and thoroughly enjoyed it. Oh yes, I enjoyed one of those ham and cheese sandwiches.

In July we received a very courteous letter from J. N. Walton, 'Light Steam Power' Kirk Michael, Isle of Man, England, writing us about his considerable embarrassment over our advertising his book, 'Double Steam Cars.' He was completely unaware of the fact and it had been necessary to increase the price over the years but we hadn't been notified. He was a victim of circumstances and entirely blameless. The price as of July 2,1970, is $7.50 U.S.A., $8.00 Canada, per copy, post free, surface mail. I apologize Mr. Walton for the mistake but I inherited the ad and I couldn't find any source of information for the ad. Both Mr. Walton and our company got irate comments.

Another letter from England Mr. J.M.D. Temple man, 58 North St. Bourne, Lincolnshire, England, writes: 'Is there any address in the U.S.A. where it is possible to obtain drawings or full details of American Threshers.

'As a hobby I make scale working models of steam engines and threshers.
