The Heinz 57 SIG was quite active from 1984 through, maybe, 1991.  It was fairly large, too.  I was member #90 and by no means the last.  Al Westerfield was member #1.  There were four to six newsletters per year, some of them running to twenty pages, IIRC.  In the beginning, plenty of Heinz freight car photos and other information came to light.  But, eventually, that well dried up and interest fell off.  As there was little new information to be found there were fewer newsletters.  Eventually the group shut down.
