Lost In The Files


| March/April 1970



Hi! Not too much news this time but then last issue made up for that. One thing I must tell you, we've had comments from some folks seems they like this idea which pleases us. Dayton Nichols of 6128 N.Y. State, Route No. 5, Stafford, New York 14143 boosted my morale recently when he wrote 'Your efforts to help each subscriber with his problem and straighten out Lost Pictures by group printing is wonderful. You truly have the magazines at heart. I always have to read your column first and enjoy reading of your family increase and activities.' You're very kind Dayton, and thanks so much it helps for some of those inevitable mistakes that I must claim.

Coming from 54 Taylor Street, Frankfort, Indiana 46041, James W. Chandler expresses his feelings, 'Would like to have your magazine more often as it is it gets a good going over and is 'read and reread'.' Picture 6F-70 is a 20 hp. Illinois engine at Fred H. Pauls yard in Hillisburg, Indiana, sold to Arthur S. Young, Kinzers, Pennsylvania. I took this just before it was loaded on flat car for shipment to Pennsylvania. It was later said that this engine went to South America.

I would like to know about 3F-70 which seems to be a 25 hp. Advance-Rumely. I believe I know this engine and it has some unusual features for an Advance-Rumely. (And he adds he would like to get in touch with the sender.)

Welcome to this column of another magazine member of the family and his information as Arnold R. Johnston, G2534 N. Genesee Road, Flint, Michigan 48506 relates to us: '5F-70, see page 24 of Sept-Oct. 1957, 16 hp. Advance owner, John Maclean, Elkhorn, Wisconsin sent in by George Brown, 403 Center Street, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Also, 11M-69 is a 13 hp. Gaar-Scott 28' hand fed separator, sold by Mr. E. C. Foreman of Tacoma, Ohio. See page 12 of Nov-Dec. 1951.'

And again thanks so much to you fellows for writing us and for looking up these notes of interest.

And remember we don't stop having fun when we're old; we're old when we stop having fun! and I know you steam enthusiasts do not fall into that group as you all seem like a group of youngsters at heart out for a lot of fun with this hobby.
