As each issue of NWL develops, I often find myself looking for a specific image. This issue was no exception, and as the piggybacking theme developed I found myself looking for an action photograph of either the 6910 or 6922 (Falcon Service SD40-2s) on a piggyback train. With 13,000 C&NW scans and counting, surely there would be exactly what I was looking for. Alas, no image in the scanned file, none in my own collection, so something else would have to suffice.
Perhaps you have such an image. The images needed for the magazine are often only identified as the rush to get a given issue ensues, and there is little time left for an appeal for photos and the time necessary to get the images needed in hand. Perhaps you have a collection of C&NW images that you’d like to make available. Our scanners are running continuously, collecting the images that feed publications, and if you’d like to contribute, we’d love a chance to scan your images. Original material only resides here long enough to get logged and scanned, so if you happen to have that Falcon Service SD40-2 on a piggyback train, perhaps you should consider sending some images in for scanning. We can handle any format — slides, negatives, and prints.
I came on board as editor of NWL at a time when the C&NWHS was struggling to maintain its publishing schedule and the quality of the magazine. I was contacted by Dana Grefe, and over the course of about nine months, we discussed magazine production, schedules, and other pertinent details. I quickly learned that Dana was thorough, strong, and had a great desire to see the C&NWHS succeed on every front. I quickly developed a great respect for the man who has been at the helm of the C&NWHS for over a decade.
Over the past eight years, Dana has helped guide the C&NWHS through many changes. I believe his influence has had a significant impact on the society. There are many forces at work in an organization like the C&NWHS, and it takes strong leadership to insure a successful future. Though we don’t always all agree on every aspect, through the past eight years I have witnessed a board of directors and officers that have been focused, intelligent, and enthusiastic as they developed the C&NWHS into what it is today.
Thanks, Dana, for bringing me on board, but also for all your hard work at the core of the C&NWHS. As you set your hand to the plow in other areas, I sincerely believe the C&NWHS will continue to benefit from the many hours you’ve invested in the society, and from many future endeavors. Wishing you… the Best of Everything!
