  • Now available! Live Steam of Days Gone by Charles S. Purinton, edited by Lawrence Urbanski and Richard Symmes, and enhanced with a wonderful collection of vintage photographs. Charlie Purinton was the son of Charles A. “Carl” Purinton, who later would be referred to as, “the father of live steam in America.” Charlie wrote an essay in 1987, putting down on paper his early memories of growing up with the pioneering builders of live steam locomotives in the 1930s and 40s. Fortunately, he had a very good memory and in his essay he describes in vivid detail the goings on of those days, the many personalities who peopled the hobby, and their locomotives, shops and tracks, as he saw them.
