[southeastforestindustrymodeling] New things on Tap Lines

Thanks Don it is always nice to see a message from you
For the rest of the list if you haven't gotten a copy of Tom Lawson's SI&E book you need one it has a wealth of photos and some of the best data I have seen.  Now I would like to know where to look for Georgia Car and Loco and Birmingham Locomotive rosters.  And I would not be adverse to seeing the car lists.
Tom the Panhandle Logging Book would be nice.  Although I spent time in the area is because of my interest but the Alabama Logging was out of my league.

Gang,
I finally got off my caboose and did a few updates on Tap Lines.
I've added a new locomotive with Battle Lumber Co. # 5 of Sorrento, FL, a Southern Iron & Equipment portrait of a rare Grant narrow gauge 0-4-0 tank engine with the original four wheel tender.
To go along with that I posted images from Tom Lawson's brochure of his newest book, Locomotives of Southern Iron & Equipment.
If you love steam locomotives you will love this book. And if contact Tom, pester him about his "lost" Panhandle Logging RR book and maybe he will publish it if there is enough interest.

I'll be off the following week and I hope and can add a few more histories.
My thing to do list includes:
narrow gauge Florida Southern
Jacksonville Gainesville & Gulf
Tavares & Gulf
and
Marianna & Blountstown.

Maybe I can get a couple of these done.
