I’m happy to
do proofreading, I did a few books for ARHS when Chris
Walters was RD editor.

arrived today and I was very disappointed to
find my hometown of Wollongong spelt incorrectly
three times in the Industrial Railway News
Our apologies for causing you this diappointment. It was
an unfortunate error, and since everything that appears
in Light Railways is read by at least two people we
would have hoped that errors like this did not slip
through. May be we need more proof readers.
The error arose because the person who prepared the item
was more familiar with hearing "Wollongong" spoken,
rather than seeing it in writing.
As regards the progress of this issue through the mail
system, Australia Post seems to have processed this
issue extremely quickly.
seems to have posted a report as yet … however
my members’ copy of the latest issue was in my
post office Box today, Wednesday. Thanks
guys – another most interesting issue, well
