Hi Paul,

1. On the main forum page: http://forum.wwfry.org/index.php in the section labled WW&F Railway Museum Discussion look for the group Newsletters. You must be logged into the forum (and be listed as a museum member) to see this section. I verified that we have you down as a museum member, so just be sure you are logged in.

The current batch of newsletters can be accessed at:
http://forum.wwfry.org/index.php?topic=1454.0
IF you are logged in and listed as a museum member.

2. I'm not sure. However, there is a significant time lapse between when the Newsletter is posted on the forum and when it arrives via mail. I have not received my May/June Newsletter via mail yet either (and that time lapse is not unusual.)

I don't believe that the newsletters got mailed until early last week.  Keep in mind the newsletters now go bulk mail, so while it may get to your post office within a few days, it's up to the discretion of the postmaster to distribute.

Ed, James;
   Thanks! As far as finding the Newsletters on the forum, dummy me was looking in the "Members Only" section. I did discover my error and found the current Newsletters.
    I was thinking that perhaps I was omitted from the latest mailing as I thought I should have received a May/June Newsletter by now. I did check with Rick Sission, who lives in same town, and he hasn't received his either which kind of made me think the newsletters may have only recently mailed out which James has confirmed.

Checking the date of Ed's announcement that the electronic issue was available, I see that it was May 25th. There is a week or so delay while Lincoln County prints, folds, and labels the newsletters. They then deliver them to the post office. I have some suspicion that the post office distribution center in Maine has an "ageing bin" wherein the newsletters are stored for a while. I say this because suddenly, after several weeks delay, but within a day or two of each other, I'll hear from folks in NH, MA, and PA that theirs has arrived. For this issue that hasn't happened yet. According to Stewart, 3500 people follow us on Facebook; according to the view count, roughly 60 people view the newsletter on this forum; according to our press run numbers, the paper newsletter run is 1500.
