Back Newsletters ?

Postby Sownman » Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:30 pm

I wrote to TEAE@aol.com but it bounced back.
I may soon have involvement with an LROFE designation Tiger.
Norm Miller told me that there was a pair of articles written by Jim Olmstead on the subject. I would love to get copies of them, or of
the newsletters that contained them.

Thanks in advance

Can you give me more details about the LROFE Tiger?
Maybe that will jog some memory cells. Eric

As far as I know they were built for sale in LH drive
countries in Europe rather than for export to US
or sale in GB. I think Olmstead owns one and did some
writing on it. Is there an online access to TEAE newsletters
or can you put me in touch with Olmstead ?

Thanks

If you are a member of TE/AE, go to the website and you can download all the email addresses of members who have submitted them.

Also, if you are a member you can get the Olmstead snail mail and phone number from the 2008 roster.

Thanks but I'm a west coast guy (LA) so spending $29 to get an email address to read two articles seems kind of steep to me.

I just acquired my dad's complete stash of newsletters from 1980 to present, with a few earlier ones. If you know at least what year the articles were published, I could find and copy them for you if I have them.

I think an online archive would be a great idea.

"The History of the Olmstead Tiger" is in three parts.

First part, August, 2006

Second part, September, 2006

Third part, October, 2006

February, 2007 has an article about the HRO MKII Tigers on page 7.

When in doubt, ask your trusty editor!!! :D
