Editor's Notes:
In this Issue:

Page 12 Jewell Junction, Iowa- Part 2 The Pinnacle and the Plunge by Richard Steffen

Page 38 Winter Scenes- Photo Section

Page 46 C&NW Passenger Trains-Covering the Midwest in 1932 by Karl Piepenburg

Ike Goes Fishing in Minoeque- Last Visit to Northern Wisconsin on the Flambeau 4000 by John Fredrickson



As you can tell here, the editor’s space has been eaten up by a portion of the unending stream of “gotta haves” for this issue. My email box has turned into the Northeast Corridor! Needless to say, there’s plenty going on in the society, so all I have room for is “hope you enjoy our last issue for 2010.” We encourage you to attend the 2011 Annual Meet in Peoria, and keep us in mind for articles including modeling features.
In addition to Jewell Part 2, passenger trains of 1932, and “Ike’s fishing trip,” we’ve assembled a nice winter photo section that we hope will inspire you for the holidays ahead. We’ll see you in 2011.
