Thanks for your message.
I just got on to this GA RR history site. So I thought I would mention that old grade.
In your book you received a lot of good help from Don Hensley. Don has world's of information & has purchased some good negative collections.
I think it is good to see you and other people dig into the histories of the many GA shortlines. During my years in GA I was able to dig into a few but not to the extent that you have done with the G.M. Thanks!
Are you planning any other books?

Second, GJ&S #1 is listed as a 0-4-2t Forney. It was a 2-4-0 with a 4
Several other GJ&S locomotives may have been located. There might have

I have been considering how to "publish these updates and have been
considering insering them in the GM 2008 calendar I am currently
