Steve King of rocky mount, virginia, near roanoke, is this country's leading modeler in 7/8 scale, which represents 2' gauge on g gauge track. he has a yahoo group. many of the members are from the uk. i have a 7/8 scale live steam forney like wwandf 9 that was made by a man in australia, he made 5 and either 2 or 3 are in the usa. so while 7/8 is a rare scale, it is a growing outdoor size for people that like big, big models. and who have decent sized back yards. minimum radius is 10', so you have to have 20' just to get the rolling stock turned. dale reynolds, pendleton sc

personally, i appreciate the hornby family posting the suggestion about the location of the septic field. i stay at round pond a couple weeks a year, and a few years ago a crew was piling up a huge mound of dirt in back of a cottage on the ocean. i was forced due to curiosity to stop and ask them what the heck they were doing. turns out they were building a septic field, not a mountain. the rules require the ground to 'perk' just like everywhere else, and to be far enuf back from the lobster fields in the ocean not to contaminate our pristine waters. so as with every single thing the museum has done that i am aware of over the past 8 years, this plan was very well thot out and proper. however, i hope our members continue to bring up any concerns they may have, as we have a very smart and caring membership and more good ideas will continue to surface. dale reynolds, pendleton sc

Along with a '1910 days' event, a program of teaching 1910 science/technology to teachers/students of the local middle and high schools could result in funding by exxonmobil and probably others. exxonmobil is very interested in math and science education and not much else. but as long as it goes thru a school system, it could work. money granted by corporation foundations would improve the overall museum if volunteers did the teaching. just a thot to keep in mind. dale reynolds, exxon retiree, pendleton sc
