Some of you have suggested that the STMFC membership require approval for
entry. I have decided to do that at least for the time being. OTOH, I don't
want to be the Supreme Court [ we have enough of those ] on such matters, so
we'll have to see what transpires. I still believe and hope that the last
sentence in the charter

"Emphasis is to be placed on the study of the prototype with a goal of
producing models of them with as great a degree of accuracy as possible."

will steer those not interested in such a commitment to other sites.

As many of you know, Al Westerfield's server has been down and, therefore,
did not receive word about this group. I have sent him another message
asking him to join. I would appreciate any of you that care to, to suggest
the same.

It has occurred to me, BTW, that the population of this group includes a
very large number of people who own Friends of the Freight Car shirts.
Perhaps we might consider this group to be the internet tool for that august
