A special recognition to Ron and Marie Brown for their contributions to the live steam hobby. The upcoming edition marks the 100th publication in the field of small scale live steam engines.
As post by Ron on the SitG website:

We will be mailing our 100th issue this week. More pages, more color, great photos and articles and an awesome centerfold, all in celebration of SitG reaching this milestone.

Faithful Assistant and I hope you will enjoy it, and we hope that we'll all be around for #200.

Happy steaming!

Ron & Marie Very Happy

Looking forward to #200. :)

Shaylover,
I believe that Sulphur Springs Steam Models still has photo copies of the very early issues of Steam in the Garden available. I have about four years worth in my files.

My article is "Three Shays and a Climax" a follow on to my inaugural SitG byline in 1999, after my first visit to Diamondhead, extolling the virtues of the wonderful folks I met there. The article outlines my journey through the live steam hobby with skills developed in locomotive bashing with the influence of Norm Saley, Keith Manison, Sonny Wizelman and John Thomson as I progressed through minor detailing to major reconstruction to coal firing, each step increasing my enjoyment of the hobby we share.
I too commend Ron and Marie for their efforts to promote our hobby. I'm very much looking forward to their annual three day steamup August 22-24 at Paradise East.
Have fun,
Tom

SitG #100 has just arrived here on the ER&CM in Australia.
WOW! /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif
I've just had a quick skim through it and now going to have a sit and read for a while.
BTW, Burra lives about five miles south of me here in the Illawarra south of Sydney Australia.

Yes a huge congrats to Ron and Marie Brown on 100 issues of SiTG!! I have issues dating back into the 90's when I first got into steam. Its fun to go back and reread them and see how far our little side of the hobby has come. I can go back to when the only real options for the beginner was Roundhouse, LGB's Frank S, or something used from Merlin ect. The rest was mainly Aster products. Then came Accucraft and they changed everything. Hopefully in the next 100 issues we will see more RTR live steam that is affordable for the masses. I still hold out hope someone on this side of the pond will do some simple coal fired locos similar to what DJB did for the Edrig. Affordabe coal firing for the masses. The Brits can do it, why cant we? Its the horrible exchange rate that keeps this one out of my hands. Take an affordabe engine at 2750 pounds, essentialy double that with the exchange rate, then add internation shipping. Keep up the great work Ron and Marie, I loved all the color photos in this issue. Cheers Mike and Michele T

It has dawned on me, after reading this thread, that SiTG is an actual physical magazine, and not an internet 'chat' magazine.

Moreover, it is one that I have never actually seen in the 'paper' and I'm clearly missing out on a lot.

I therefore need pointing as to where I might lay my paws on a copy here in UK.

TIA, anybody.

Sir - All I can say is that if you are being charged £2750 for an Edrig [list price here in yUK around £550, including radio control] then you are being seriously ripped off by somebody taking advantage of your good nature.
