Normally we keep public announcement items in the New Eng. Steam newsletter and our journal, "The Booster". We have an official website (www.newenglandsteam.org) and an official Facebook platform (https://www.facebook.com/newenglandsteam/). A second Facebook platform is maintained by one of our volunteers, and while it reflects her observations "unofficially", the coverage is always interesting and presents her positive view. (https://www.facebook.com/MCSL470Restore/).

NESCO has had another very productive summer to date, but I want to highlight one particular aspect of our three major objectives; that of education. One of our Directors is a teacher of advanced mathematics at the University of Maine, and his interest in 470's restoration has drawn in quite a number of younger people, some of whom, but not all of them engineering students. One is a math major, another is a grad student in geology. None of them are afraid to get dirty in the process of bringing the locomotive back. An increasing number of them are young women.

You do not need to be a Facebook subscriber to view these blogs, so I invite you to take a look and see what's happening at Washington Junction yard.

Give it Hell, Brother Glueck, I just wish you weren't so far from here so I could see your project firsthand. Best of luck, and VIVA MEC 470 !!!!
