>Hello, I live in Arlington, VA and am writing on behalf of a friend

>of mine, Edith Bell, who used to ride the Northern & Western steam

>trains in the 1920s, '30s and '40s.


>Edith now lives in Centreville, VA, and does not have a computer.

>She told me about catching the N&W at the Blackstone, VA station

>when she was a child, so I checked the internet and found your

>Society. This weekend, I gave her a print out of the information on

>your website.


>Edith said she's thrilled to find your Society and to see the

>history of the line. She also said she's interested in joining, so

>you might be receiving her membership via regular mail. I also sent

>information about the N&WHS to her brother, at her request.


>I'm wondering if there are any N&WHS members in the Centreville /

>Manassas area who might be interested in talking to Edith over the

>phone (since she doesn't have email)?


>Members are welcome to contact me - Edith has given me permission to

>give them her phone number.


>My own volunteer activity is Outreach Coordinator for the

>International Buster Keaton Society (comedy movies!), so I know how

>much fun belonging to a group is.


>I've also suggested to Edith that she write down her memories of

>experiences riding the N&W, in case you would want them.


>Best wishes to your Society! Hope to hear back from someone soon!
