I know a new steamer at the Naval War College in New Port RI who is looking for fellow steamers in his area of Rhode Island, Connecticut or Mass. John has a SR#24 and a 2-cilynder Shay. Is there any one out there in that area who I can refer to John?
Thanks,

Did you know that Marblehead was the seat of some very earliest US live steam activity, and the birthplace of IBLS, begun by Charles Purinton and that English scallywag LBSC? This would heve been 2.5" and 3.5" gauge activities.

I'm on the Cape, and would love to find more steamers in Southern New England. I have a few locos, no designated track yet.

Had no idea that Marblehead had a rich live steam history. Marblehead's history can surprise - I hadn't known until recently that it was also was the home of the Burgess Company, one of the earliest manufacturers of seaplanes.
