Hello Cheryl,


My name is Jan Sanderson, and my husband, Jim Sanderson was a member of the Kitsap Live Steamers until his death in July 2010.  I am writing to you as I have some books and Jim's collection of professionally bound magazines that he collected over the years.  I am wondering if any of your members might be interested in any of these as they are quite beautiful.  They are as follows:

Modeltec Volume 6 (May 1989 - April 1990) through Volume 17 (May 200 - April 2001) - a total of 12 volumes

Live Steam Volume 13 (1979) through Volume 43 (2009) - a total of 32 volumes

Grand Scales Quarterly Volume No. 1-12 (July 1997 - July 2000) and Volume No. 13-24 (October 2000 - 2003)

The Steam Locomotive Study Course - Volumes 1-4


I have checked with Powell's Bookstore and they said that each volume would be worth about $20.00 each, but I would be happy to sell them for $10.00 a volume if anyone is interested.  Would it be possible if I offered these through your OrderBoard newsletter?  I am attaching a few photos.


Thank you for your assistance in this matter.


Sincerely, Jan Sanderson
