ACY

The book is out.  It appeared in some retail shops late last week.  I got my copy in the mail today.

Congratulations Tom, I am sure that the book will be as interesting as the info you provided within this thread.

To One Old Goat: Lived in Sycamore, Ohio 1954- 1960, one block South of the tracks toward town on Main street. Remembering the Nathan M5 horns on the H- 16-44's and H-20-44's . And the blue - white smoke ! I have a true tale from October 1957 in the early evening to tell and would share that if you are interested.

  Let me know. Retired Engineer

I have a true tale from October 1957 in the early evening to tell and would share that if you are interested.

I think this will be well worth the telling ... but perhaps in its own new topic.

This is a 'necro' thread from years ago, which had drifted into largely referring to a book about the AC&Y.  What I think you should do is use the 'start a new topic' button, provide an appropriate title (like "Akron, Canton and Youngstown memories") and spin out the tale -- I suspect we'll see some of Tom's stories in short order, and ideally many more.  (But I won't argue that redirecting the thread to its original stated intent would be a decent service!)

The fellow you are attempting to contact hasn't posted anything for over 2 years, so it is likely he won't see this.  You could try sending him a Private Message, those normally send a email to the recipient too.

I would be interested in hearing your story though.
