Happy to report I have located the negatives of the Labor Day 1960 doings
in Saltville. I have the ability to scan them at 1200 dpi and to get
satisfactory positive images thereafter. I could then save all onto a CD
(along with a print-out giving details) to mail to Salem Ave. if that works
for your archives. I usually do everything in JPEG but could save as TIFF
Regarding the excursion ride, which I photographed crossing Tin Bridge
trestle near Plasterco, I would need members input as to where it
