EDITOR’S LETTER

By Staff

This should be the best year ever for collectors and
organizations, and we hope all shows will attract record
crowds.

We can see the steady increase in interest, through sales of our
1987 Steam & Gas Show Directory. It is the biggest we have ever
produced, with more shows and more participants than in any prior
year. Copies of the Directory are still available, for individuals
and for group purchases for resale.

Our close bond with our readers and advertisers continues to
grow in strength. We know that you consider this your own magazine,
and we try to keep it that way. What you do is of prime importance
to us. Please keep sending good photos and stories, so that we can
tell your story to your fellow collectors and restorers.

Has your club started or completed a project in which you take
special pride? Are there new officers? Are there outstanding
members that you think should be given special mention? Let us
hear.

With the season now proceeding, we have some notes on
corrections of show dates which have been sent to us since the 1987
Directory was issued. You may wish to note the corrections in your
own copies of the Directory. They are:
