I again stand corrected. As Mr Kasey stated there were only two issues of volume 1 Speedwitch. (typo)

Hopefully everyone is getting their Newsletter-Bulletin-Shoreliner-Speedwitch files in order!

I filled out my collection last year, a combination of the NHRHTA back issue sales, eBay, railpub,com, Alden Dryer and several other contacts I've made over the past few years.  My complete collection starts with vol #8 (1977), with a smattering of earlier issues.  If anyone needs any of these, I have duplicates of:

V8 #4
V10 #2, 4
V18 #1, 3, 4
V19 #1
V24 #4

Mr. Franzosa, I would like to buy V8 #4, V10 #2, and V10 #4 if no one has bought them from you yet.

SHORELINER DATES
The last Shoreliner issue to carry a date on the cover was Issue 4 of Vol.25 dated 1994.  However, Vol. 26 and 27 and Issues 1 and 2 of Vol.28 carried the date on the masthead on the first inside page.  Issue 2 of Vol. 28 has a masthead date of 1997.   Issue 3 has no date on the masthead but it carries a copyright date of 2000, a leap of three years.  Shoreliners have a copyright date which identifies when they were produced.  I haven't checked every issue but I suspect most if not all have a copyright date.  The copyright dates give an idea of the production slowdown.  After the copyright date 2000 for Vol. 28, 3 and 4, the copyright date jumps to 2002 with Vol. 29, 1 and 2 but jumps to 2004 with Vol. 29, 3 and to 2005 with issue 4.  The Turbotrain story started with Vol.29, issue 2 of copyright date 2000 but although the conclusion was announced to be with the next issue, the conclusion was published as NHRHTA BULLETIN no. 18 dated August 2005 and copyrighted 2005.  In the meantime, Shoreliner Vol. 29, 3 was issued with a 2004 copyright date and issue 4 came with a 2005 copyright date.  Vol.30 was published with copyright dates of 2006 (#1) 2007 (#2) and 2008 (#3 and #4).  Thereafter, publication has been regular.  In summary, I think 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2003 were the years when no Shoreliner was published  ---  I don't know how I got by during those lean, dark years.

Mr. NH746EJO. Being a traction and heavy electric fan from wayback (I wish I knew Sherman and Mr. Peabody) I subscribed to Traction & Models Magazine, and Traction, Prototypes and Models both of which did not have regular deliveries. So, I had patience when I started receiving the Shoreliner after joining in 1992. "During those lean, dark years" I went back to reread my older magazines and model (if time permitted since I was still working), and the joy when the long awaited issue arrive could probably be compared to a honeymoon! (Been married over 40 years now. Got hitched in a civil ceremony then I deployed without the honeymoon. So, I have nothing to compare with.)

Gents,

What was I meant by the last "dated volume" was that the date did not appear in the upper left-hand corner under the volume # & issue # on the consist page (3). A slight technicality on my part. The main thing should be that you try to get all the volumes & not worry about when they were published or copyrighted.

Bill, I have no word as to when 39-4 will be out.

In 1973, Ron High and I volunteered to assist the late Joe Snopek in his attempt to publish a bulletin.  The Association had to had a Bulletin published in nearly 2 years.

Joe edited two issues of the Bulletin which I produced and had printed.  With the summer 1973 issue, Ron High took on the job as editor and I became publisher.  My plan at the time was to turn the 16 page typewritten Bulletin into a slick magazine format that we could market in hobby shops.  I felt the Association would get more exposure and possibly grow our membership which at the time was about 400.

The name of the publication changed from Bulletin to Shoreliner with the fall issue of 1973.  The inspiration for the Shoreliner title came from the advertising on the bridge at Union Station in Worcester, Massachusetts which announced the new (in 1952) Budd service to New London, Connecticut.

Incidentally, the reason there never was a summer issue in 1974 was that Ron and I went on a 9,000 mile cross-country motorcycle trip to shoot the Union Pacific's big power DD40x, DD35s and U50Ds, etc.

With regard to on-time Shoreliners, Ken Warner took over for me after I had taught him the system in the early 1990s.

When Ken ceased Shoreliner production, the Shoreliner publication schedule became sporadic. Since Wayne Drummond asked that I come back to produce Shoreliner, I believe Cosette and I have been fairly consistent with on-time Shoreliner arrivals.

As far as the SpeedWitch is concerned, publication is based on members' contributions of articles and any reviews that John Sheridan and Paul Cutler produce for us.  I tried in the past to get several people who were former employees to edit a correspondence for former New Haven Railroaders and never heard back from them.

Shoreliner Volume 39 Issue 4 will be a little late.  We experienced some serious health issues which literally shut down our operation for 3 months.  We are back in production at this point.

I hope this answers some of your questions.

Best Wishes for the Holiday Season, and hope you had a Great Thanksgiving.
