FARQUHAR SAWMILL OWNER

Larry Flora, 350 PPL Road, Danville, PA 17821; (570) 437-2519, is the proud owner of the Farquhar sawmill shown in the last issue (Steam Traction, September/October 2005). If you recall, we lost the name of the writer, but ran his photos in hopes he'd contact us. Larry's wife, Virginia, called to set the record straight. Thanks.

STEAM ENGINE CONFERENCE

Barry Bromley, R.R. 2, Box 33, Brandon, MAN Canada R7A 5Y2; (204) 728-7503; (http://flinflon.brandonu.ca/steam/MHSEC2005/default.htm) sends his thanks for helping make their recent steam engine conference in Canada a success. Look for more information on the conference in a future issue. Barry writes:

On behalf of the Manitoba Historical Steam Engine Conference 2005 Organizing Committee, I would like to extend our thanks for letting us use material from Steam Traction in the handout. Copies were given to the 82 delegates and presenters at the conference.

We particularly want to thank you for the copies of Steam Traction, which were distributed to delegates and presenters.

Thanks to the generosity of a lot of people, including the presenters, we were on budget.

MAILBOX STEAMER

Some time ago we received some photos from reader Dean Unruh, Route 3, Box 429, Enid, OK 73703, who put his skills to work designing and fabricating a mailbox we're sure steamers would love to have. Nice work, Dean!
