Folks,
         Most of us are familiar with the August article about Alice Ramsdall and the Sandy River #6 as she liked to call her.

For years I have wondered who the author Peter J. Rickershauser was. Now a person over at the Narrow Gauge discussion Forum has answered the question. He was later an Assistant Vice President of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

Anyone who will drive from New Jersey to far northeastern Connecticut to look at a steam locomotive has to have some railroad in his life!

The old Railroad Magazine for January 1968 also has an article about Alice Ramsdall. She was#61 in the Interesting Railfans series. If it isn't on line someplace; the issues are in many public libraries.

Peter Rickershauser resides in Denver and is a good friend of mine. He still does rail consulting and serves on several boards.

He did a recent presentation, on the N&W rail strike that changed the face of U.S. railroads in the 1980's, for our local NRHS chapter.

He is a great fan of the WW&F. and all things Maine two footers.

According to my records, Mr. Rickershauser is not a WW&F member.  Perhaps, Ira, you should persuade him!

I'm pretty sure we have the article in the Archives.
