Breaking News !

Lee Bertholf, RITS Publications Chair, told me this week that the 2011 RITS calendar has been mailed to all 2010 Sustaining members and those who have pre-ordered it. He has a limited number of copies available for $10.00 plus $4.00 S&H. Contact Lee at to order a copy. A better deal would be to renew your dues for 2011 at $35.00 and receive both the calendar and the new pin. It features a large selection of photos from the Wojtas collection

Two RITS members will be making presentations at the Prototype Rails meeting in Cocoa Beach, FL, January 6-9, 2011. Jeff Aley and Steve Hile will present photos and slides from the Don Ball collection owned by RITS on Thursday night. Steve Hile will talk about RI stock cars on Friday and Saturday afternoons. He will be using photos from the Wojtas collection owned by RITS. Go to for more information. Advance registration is $35.00.

The last 2, 2010, issues of the Rocket have been sent to the publisher/printer, White River Publications and should end up in your mailbox shortly.
