Any publication needs continuous thought as it grows and changes, and NWL is no exception. Over the next several issues the board of directors and I will be looking at several minor revisions aimed at getting more historical content into the pages of the magazine. We’re specifically looking at some ways to present the basic society information in a more condensed way or in another format, while still keeping members informed on the many activities of the C&NWHS. Changes to this opening page are the beginning, with a slight rearrangement of the columns and the elimination of the publication schedule, which essentially doesn’t change from year to year.
Another item of note is two additional columns, one covering CGW and the other M&StL. These two columns will cover miscellaneous small CGW and M&StL items that don’t merit a full-article treatment. The CGW column is included in this issue, and the M&StL column will join the ranks with the next issue. If you have anything to contribute to these columns contact the column authors, except for photography, which should come here for scanning and return.
This issue begins a look at the Huron area and the entire Alco Line across southern Minnesota and South Dakota. As is often the case, there was more material than would fit, so we’ll conclude the coverage with the next issue. Having never been to the Huron area, I’m looking forward to the upcoming convention there even more than usual. If you’ve never attended a convention, this would be a great one to start with. There will be lots to see, and plenty of good ’ole North Western folks to meet. I hope to see you there!
