They have 3 speeds and; generally, they go to the Rallys under
their own steam along the road. I am English and used to be a
member of a Steam Club in England and being a boiler maker, I have
worked on several engines. My Uncle owns a steam engine. I though
on coming to America, my steam hobby would stop awhile, but was
amazed to find so many steam engines over here. I have gotten much
enjoyment out of your magazine, so much so, that when I return to
England I would like to continue having it.

This is our seventh one – do you folks like them? If you cut out
the picture on the heavy lines and paste on light cardboard with
rubber cement you will have a three dimensional picture you can
view in the old fashioned stereoscope viewer glasses. Please let
Roy know if you like his pictures – and us too. Now, we had a
letter from Robert A. Howard of 30 Everett Drive, Rochester, New
York 14624 and he writes us: ‘In regards to your stereoscopic
views, your instructions advise to use rubber cement to mount the
pictures to pasteboard. Rubber cement has a short life expectancy
of maybe four or five years at the most, and having a high sulphur
content, causes perman-staining and degrades the fiber of the
paper. The views mounted with a good pure wheat paste will last
longer and not be stained or materially damaged.’ (I certainly
thought this was worthwhile passing on to you folks – Anna Mae)
