Two-Foot Musings
« on: June 03, 2015, 09:32:51 PM »
Seventy eight installments of Two-Foot Musings over a span of 25 years—only about eight years shorter than the operating life of the railroad. That’s some accomplishment, Ellis Walker! Many, many thanks for all the reading pleasure you provided us, and best wishes for a happy retirement.

Well put Steve, Ellis has been a wonderful contributor to the newsletter.  He's brought many interesting things to light in the last 25 years.  Very few people have had so much dedication to the museum for such a long time.

Thank you Ellis.

The Two-Foot Musings are such wonderful additions to the newsletter. Like delicious icing on good cake!
Thank you, Mr. Walker for your delightful words. I often find myself fishing out an old newsletter just to re-read one of those articles.
Would 100 perhaps be a better stopping point? Maybe 150?
In any case, those 78 have been great. Thanks, again.

Looks like we'll need to reissue the Musings book, now with all of the Musings.

Maybe just print an add-on supplement to be sold to anyone who has the book already, and included with future purchases? I think there are LOTS of boxes of these books upstairs in the woodshop.
