Along those lines (ahem), in my last post I put out a quick request for an old RMC article which I hoped not only that someone would have, but that they'd be willing to share it with me. Exceeding my expectations by a long shot, not 30 minutes after my post went live, I got an email from Trevor Marshall of Port Rowan fame - "Voila!" said he, and had attached a PDF of the article I was seeking. Thank you again Trevor!
But in keeping with my desire to share what I learn, I wanted to figure out the best way to share it with you - without stepping on any toes or violating any copyrights, etc. Very fortunately, last weekend at the ProtoMeet I had just seen Tony Koester and had met Bill Schaumburg. Turns out, Tony wrote the article in question, and Bill could give me permission to share it here - which he did, most graciously.
So, without any further ado, enjoy this great piece on one of the most famous photos of the Valley Local - "A Mogul at Middletown," by Tony Koester, published in Railroad Model Craftsman, May 1980 (courtesy RMC, via Trevor Marshall, used with permission).
