BRAVO! Looks great. Heading into our/TKM's 5th year (this August) I have to say that success is easy to duplicate if you have the spirit to attack it.
Gordon, remind your folks that a society that focus on the modeler/historian will survive when other will wane. Just remind the folks in your society that "pay per view" doesn't mix well with those that volunteer their time to do good things for the society and ultimately the society does benefit...
Know the timing of John's release I used my commentary in my column in TKM to reinforce what others are creating and John and his staff have taken the first step.
Great Work, John?

My advice to you would be to keep trying. I first proposed an SCL
Modeler a year ago and the idea went down in flames. FWIW, I think a
Southern Modeler would be a terrific idea. There's so much to cover,
and with a guy like Bob Harpe in your camp you'll have an instant
In the editorial in SCLM #1, you'll recall I mentioned that Al
Buchan--the current PRR T&HS pres and TKM publisher--got us all set
up. Al is a great ambassador for the hobby and he beleives like I do
that "a high tide raises all boats". In other words, what's good for
the SCL-M is good for the PRR T&HS and so on, and also prototype
modeling in general. B&O HS is already using the TKM format, and I
understand another HS in the northeast is considering something
using the format as well. Talk to Al and get his thoughts, then poll
other guys you trust, build a vision, get buy-in, and execute.
My apologies, Gentlemen, for the off-topic post.
