  1. Dear sir,
    I refer to your website re:timing stevenson valve gear.I have a problem in that
    I cannot view your diagrams or jpgs of this article.I have built a 5″gauge live
    steamer, an A10 loco.(Australian).I feel this article would be invaluable as I am
    in the stages of completion.maybe a direct link to jpgs or emailed attachment.
    Your response to this request would be most appreciated.
    With Many Thanks

  2. Fr. Jay,
    I think it was 10 or 12 years ago when we visited you in Providence, RI. I was working for Amtrak at the time and our son Joe was in College. I retired February 1, 2012 as an engineer working the California Zephyr between Oakland, CA and Reno, NV. I like the new look to the website and will try to visit it a little more often. Thanks and if you ever get to San Jose, CA I will give you a model railroad to live steam to prototype rail tour. I think I could set you up with a priests guest room at our parish rectory. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    • Thanks Bill! I do remember your visit. Hope all are well. Not sure if I’ll make it out there, but if I do, I will be sure to look you up.

  3. Father Finelli, Good morning. I am an insurance agent in the Pittsburgh area and I am trying to locate insurance for a local club in our area (Mars, PA). The club wants to offer rides to the public on a train similar to the ones you operate. My interest is finding out the name of the company and/or agent who insures your train rides. Please contact me if you are able. David Matta, Matta, Rupp & Fiore Insurance.

  8. Fr. Finnelli,

    I live in southern RI and have a project, not railroad related, that requires some small scale machining of a prototype and was wondering if you or any of your members would be interested in taking a look at it.

    Thank you for your consideration.
