Now this is strange, the other day I was given a book Boston and Maine Steam Volume 2 with a copy write date of 2017. It was done by the B&M Historical Society, It is in the same type of format as Bob's previous books.
 Now this is where it gets stranger, while talking to the person that gave me this book he said that Bob is no longer with us(?). I mentioned that a number of years ago he moved from Connecticut to Kentucky and it left him and me confused. 

 Now for the True or False questions: 1) Did Bob pass away? and 2) If not is he starting to print books again with the help of Historical Groups? or did he give Historical Groups the right to reprint some of his books.

Bill,

The B & M book on steam could be  new or a reprint. Bob was still with us at the NHRHTA train show in Sep. To the best of my knowledge he can still be reached at P.O. Box 52, Wallingford, KY 41093, 606-845-3323

On  April 1, 2017, the B&MRRHS mailed to members the book in question as an extra benefit.  It had been started by Bob and Dave Sweetland before Dave's passing.  Since the book was nearly complete, the B&MRRHS aproached Bob in early 2016 and made an arrangement for its publication with editing and preparation by Carl Byron.
