Bill,

Just one correction and a comment.  At the introduction of the Tenth Anniversary Big Haulers, it was announced that Bachmann had produced one million Big Haulers at that time, now nearing fifteen years ago.

Lee Riley's selection of the T & W N C, ten wheeler had something to do with Lee's participation on the restoration board at Tweetsy.  Knowing it would be available for measurements, etc.

I bought my first BH the Christmas of 1988 and I still have it, but with one of my drives in it, and upgraded details.

Bill, this should be interesting, thanks, Bill.
