Editor's Notes:
Occasionally an article comes in that eclipses my ability to compress it into a magazine. When Joe Piersen evaluated the original piece submitted by Dennis Eggert on the Baldwin rebuilds, he estimated it could make a small book. I thought I could manage to get it into North Western Lines, and generally avoid continuing an article from one magazine to the next. The original submission included a notebook with hundreds of photos, line drawings, and the articles.
Herein is Joe’s book. It turned out that it wouldn’t really fit in a standard-sized NWL, so the board authorized expanding the page count to accommodate the volume of photographs. The result is a lot of pages devoted to Baldwins, and especially to the repowering that these locomotives experienced in the late 1950s. Modeler’s aren’t left out, as Dennis covers several methods of building the repowered units in HO scale. The locomotive drawings and associated photography should give modelers plenty of ammunition for producing these for various duties on anyone’s pike.
Some room was saved for the CGW and M&StL columns. As editor, I continue to support covering those two predecessors in some detail in every issue.
Below this column are several important announcements for the upcoming regional meets. The regional meets are always a great time, and a time where it’s easy to get to know fellow members interested in the C&NW and its predecessors. The smaller groups generally present make these regional meets especially friendly, so mark your calendars and plan to attend any or all of these meets. They are a great place to interact with the board of directors and officers, and your input into the organization is highly regarded and encouraged by each and every one of them.
We’re also working hard on two book projects. The first is coverage of the Air Line from Milwaukee to Fond du Lac, and was written by Jim Yanke. By the time this issue is in your hands, the review process will be underway on the final proof copy of Jim’s book. We’re hoping for delivery in November.
The Air Line book is a comprehensive look at the Air Line, which started in Milwaukee and ran through Wiscona, Granville, Rockfield, Jackson, West Bend, Kewaskum, Cambellsport, Eden, Quarry, and Marshline to Fond du Lac. Historic photographs, maps, timetables, and coverage through the end of the C&NW’s operations on the Air Line are all part of this effort.
The second effort is coverage of the M&StL depots, and was written by board member Dennis Holmes. It will be a companion book with the same format of the previously published CGW depot book, the second printing of which is currently sold out. Members better take that as a cue and order both of these books just as soon as final pricing is set. There will be announcements in NWL and on the website, so keep an eye out and order them as soon as they’re announced.
While on the subject of books, take a look in the Newsliner bound in the middle of this issue and locate the list of Archives books that are for sale through your very active Archives staff. These books are important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is they capture and preserve the history of the C&NW and its predecessors. Equally importantly, they generate important revenue that helps keep the Archives running, which in turn preserves more of the C&NW. By purchasing items of interest from the Archives, you are helping not only the C&NWHS to continue to preserve history, but are also increasing your own understanding of the many facets of the C&NW. If you’ve already purchased everything of interest, consider a donation to help our preservation efforts. Joe Piersen, lead C&NWHS Archivist, is looking for funds to purchase several important collections that will further the C&NWHS’s goal of preserving as much of the history of the C&NW as possible. Checks can be made out to C&NWHS.
In the meantime, jot down on your calendar those regional meet dates listed below, and then turn the page and dive into our coverage of C&NW’s Baldwins.
