Arriving soon in a mailbox near you! The Prospector Volume 21 Number 2 started being mailed out this week from our printer.
Both Foreign and Domestic members should start seeing your issue delivered in the next week or so to your mailbox. If you are not an RGM&HS member, (although we highly recommend joining) this issue is available to purchase from the RGM&HS Company Store.
This issue contains Part 1 of Allen Copeland’s coverage of the Rio Grande’s massive 4-6-6-4 steam locomotives in the L-105 class 3700 number series. We will follow up in the next issue with Allen’s Part 2, which provides recently discovered information on the six L-97 class 4-6-6-4s delivered to the Rio Grande in May and June 1943. Dale DeWitt has researched the available scale models available for both classes of the 4-6-6-4s and they will be covered in this month’s Green Light with photographs.
Another of Mike McLaughlin’s stories is in this issue. He describes (in colorful language that has been omitted) working with the small Fairmont and similar motor cars.
Bringing up the markers in this issue is a “how-to” article on modeling the Minturn roundhouse written and illustrated by Jeff Simley.
