Aley, Jeff A

Thanks, Folks, for your generosity!


Because of you, I have received (as of this writing) $625.00.  Since the fees are $220 per year, this easily covers 2022, 2023, and enough of 2024 that I’m not going to worry about it.  That means that I will not be bugging you for additional donations until sometime in 2025! has my credit card # on file, and will automatically charge it each year.  So you don’t need to worry about the money going astray.


Thanks again, I am grateful for your donations!

Hi Folks,


               On June 3, 2022, I paid the $220.00 annual renewal to for RealSTMFC.  Our group is a “Premium” group (as defined by, which means that we have plenty of storage, so our emails and attachments don’t get lost / deleted.


               I paid last year’s fees ($220.00) out of pocket, and if I remember correctly, the fees for 2020 were paid by a member who wishes to remain anonymous.


               There are ways for me to solicit money from the membership using a feature, but that requires me to give a bunch of my bank account information – no thanks.  I do, however, have a PayPal account.  So, if anyone wishes to donate a few bucks, he can send it to me on PayPal using my email address, which is jaley at comcast dot net.


Thanks, and back to Freight Cars!
