V12 Nos. 3-4 is near at hand!

We're rounding Third Base putting the next REMEMBER THE ROCK together, so I wanted to take the time to make sure all of our subscribers who have been waiting to renew are aware that NOW'S THE TIME TO RENEW! Renewals received after the 4th of July, won't get V 12 Nos. 3&4 at the subscriber rate. Their subscription will start with V13 Nos.1&2, and the back issue will be sold at Retail Price. When the magazine is headed to the printer I'll post a synopsis of the contents. This is a bang-up issue with a load of Iowa and Oklahoma...

Getting ready for RTR V12 Nos. 3 & 4

Posted by Customer Support on

Hi folks: Now that Vol 12 Nos. 1 & 2 has been out awhile, I'm getting ready to start another RTR and I'm thinking this issue might have a little more Iowa content that usual. Although it's the next state west from RTR's Home Office in Mendota, Illinois, Iowa has remained somewhat of a mystery to me since I started driving west in the seventies.

Guys who ask me questions like when was the last time we covered the Rock Island local that ran on the Gorre and Daphited. Or if we have any photos of the DeWitt Clinton shot at Peoria during the 100-year centennial celebration?! Believe it or not, I don't know!So for all you DIY-kinda guys we've done...

RTR Vol. 12 Nos. 1 and 2

January 11, 2018 We're just about done with the next RTR (V12 Nos.1&2) with only final editing, some RPO additions and 4 pages of layouts to clean up. It's a fascinating issue, with some subjects covered that have never seen print, as well as an in depth look at some that have. With any luck it goes to the printer by the week of the 21st. About ten days later the gospel should be drying on the parchment.So what's inside? Regular RTR readers will recognize Bill Leistiko's byline, as items from his post card collection have been subjects in past...
