We have a new feature this month, an Oil Field Engine Column, written for us by collector Russell Farmer. If you are a collector of oil field engines, feel free to write to Russell and share your pictures with him, as he will send things into the magazine for you. The column appears on page 19 of this issue.
We are always in search of great pictures for our covers, so please share yours with us! There is usually a bit of a wait between our receipt of a photo and its appearance on the cover, but right now our backlog is cleared. If you've been procrastinating with an especially good picture of a fine engine or tractor, you might be surprised at how quickly it will appear!
Our printer and mailer have been having a few problems in recent months, which have caused our magazines to hit the postal system later than we like. Also, our mailer sent a second August issue to foreign subscribers instead of September. We were able to straighten things out, but we truly appreciate the patience of those of you who got the wrong issue and then had to wait even longer for the correct one.
We'd also like to alert you to a small but significant correction from our October issue. In the Bradley, Parrett, and Kaywood Tractors story by Robert Hall, Jr., on page 28, it should be noted that the city directory (in the fourth paragraph of the story) stated that the companies were not the same.
As always, we hope you enjoy the festivities of the coming holiday season!
