Thanks Mr. Sullivan. And I thought I had stuff squirreled way.  My wife will be relieved.


I don't mind searching for back issues, etc, in fact it can be kind of fun,  however it certainly helps to know what the parameters of the search are, so that one knows what to hunt for, when to quit, and when the set of publications is complete.  And this is the first I've heard of a "SpeedWitch" magazine in this mix.

I need an aspirin. Badly.

I see. More geared to the modeling side of the hobby. 
Thank you

Mr. Run 8. Yes, The SpeedWitch is geared more towards the modeling side, and it frees up more space in Shoreliner for nonmodeling articles. You can download copies of The SpeedWitch volume 1, issues 1 and 2, and volume 2, issue 1 directly from the NHRHTA's website at http://nhrhta.org/. Click on the menu item in the right side column that reads, "DOWNLOAD ISSUES OF THE SPEEDWITCH®NEW!
I have gotten all of mine directly when I received my Shoreliner magazine that it was published with. If you have been receiving your Shoreliners in the past, you should have seen The SpeedWitch also by now.

This topic got me thinking, I wonder how complete my collection of Shoreliner is?  I have the soft covered reprint issued June 2003 of Vol 1,2,and 3. I have a photostat of the mislabeled Vol 5 #1 which I see is really Vol 4 #1 and then I have all the issues from Vol 7 #1 to present. I also have a huge number of Newsletters starting with Vol.5 #1/2 to Vol. 24 #7/8 and may or may not be complete. I also have The bulletin from May 2000 to Aug. 2005 and last a large binder of data sheets and all of the Speedwitch issues. I joined, I believe, in 1987 and very shortly after that ordered all the back issues that were available as Richard Sullivan did. I also ran into a large bit of luck when one day, when I was in an n scale hobby shop in Sudbury, I noticed that he had forsale a large box of old Shoreliners that were like new condition and other assorted things. I offer them $10 and walked away completely overwhelmed at my find. In thinking about all these issues, I commend all of the authors and photographers and well as all the people who spent countless hours putting all the information together. It is an invaluable collection about the New Haven Railroad.

I have to add to the confusion regarding the NHRHTA Newsletter volume 24 (1996). Mr. Warner said there was only one issue for that year. I don't have all of mine in one location. But, I have Volume 24, Numbers 1 & 2, 1996, Volume 24, Numbers 5 & 6, 1996, and Volume 24, Numbers 7 & 8, 1996. Plus I have one Volume 26, Numbers 3-4, 1996, which I believe has the mistyped volume number since the page labels at the bottom of each page are consistant with the other page labels for Volume 24 1996 as #1-2/96 NL, #3-4-96 NL, #5&6-96 NL, and #7&8-96 NL. So, I think there were four issues of NHRHTA Newsletter Volume 24 1996 with one issue mistyped /mislabeled as Volume 26. Now I curious what I will find when I find my NHRHTA Newsletter Volume 26 for 1998. Of course if I won't find it since NHRHTA Newsletter Volume 25 1997 should be the last one, right?
Here is another twist. I have one page NHRHTA Bulletins starting with the August, 1993 which was "enclosed with the #3 Shoreliner for 1992. This issue of Shoreliner® will be mailed in late-January, 1994. The Bulletin is an irregular insert with some mailings to keep the membership up to date. It is usually a one page sheet." These continue to be called NHRHTA Bulletins until the May, 2000 issue when the title changed to NHRHTA Addenda. Fun isn't it?

Mr. Sullivan, For Newsletter 1996 I stand corrected and you are correct! There were four issues for the year and I have corrected my files. Thank you!

Yes, there is no volume 26 Newsletter 1998 and 1997 volume 25 was the last year.

Volume 1 of the Speedwitch had only two issues,1 & 2, not four. To add to the confusion there was also a Volume 1 of a "bulletin" called Advance NE-1 (only one so far). It contained mostly info on upcoming models at that time but no modeling articles. As we all know, or may not know, the Speedwitch was developed & introduced to eliminate modeling articles in the Shoreliner publication & to have a publication for modelers only . The reason there were one issue in certain volumes was the was the lack of material to print for a second issue. If any of you folks are modelers and would like to keep the Speedwitch going articles are badly needed.

Something else to look out for! There was the NHRHTA Bulletin #18 which actually was the conclusion of the TurboTrain articles written by Marc Frattasio in Vol 29-Issues 2 & 4. Why this was done that way I can't say. 

The reason for Volume 28 was the last dated volume was after 1997 there was a lapse in time of about 8 or 9 years where no S-Ls were issued until Bill Dulmaine & his wife Cosette took over the publishing duties. Shoreliner has been on an even keel ever since! Kudos to Bill & Cosette!

Thanks Mr. Kasey for pointing out the Advance NE-1. That was the one I refered to as the Addendum. Mine is somewhere and I was trying to depend on my memory, and I plucked the wrong title out of the sky (that's the trouble when the roos are loose in the paddock). I totally agree with you about the efforts of Mr. Dulmaine and his wife on the regularity of the Shoreliner. But, the Shoreliner and The SpeedWitch both depend on authors to submit articles to have any publication.
