Mr. Leo Huston of Watertown, South Dakota, had a proposition in
the March-April issue of buying a Railroad Engine. We just had word
from Mr. Harold Anderson, Washington, Iowa, that the Midwest Old
Settlers & Threshers Association, Inc., have a saddle back
locomotive and plan a track, cars and depot. They say that
acquiring: the locomotive is the small part of the project. They
are financing this undertaking by the sale of stock in the M.O.S.
& T. A. Railroad at $10.00 per share.
This is a project we are certainly enthusiastic about. The track
will be placed in the McMillan Park, Mount Pleasant, Iowa, where
the Annual Reunion is held. Maybe you and I can he the engineer for
one trip. I know there will be lots of folks who will gladly buy
one or many more shares of stock in this delightful and pleasurable
project. Send your contributions to Mr. Harold Anderson, R. D. 5,
Washington, Iowa, and you will receive a certificate with a gold
border and with your name written on it. It also has a picture of
this dream locomotive.
We surely wish this Committee well in this work. Elmer.
