As a relatively new member of the Steam Car Club, I too am shocked, dismayed and now fear for the ongoing success of the club. It was Basil Craske who reached out to myself and Midwest Coach with nothing but good, valid reasons I should become a member supplier. Basil put forth a lot of effort to bring our products to the forefront on the website and in the club magazine as well.
I understand the toll has now included Marilyn oliver, another great loss to SCCGB.
As for myself and Midwest Coach & Carriage Works, we stand with Basil Craske and Marilyn Oliver. I regret that the article Basil had asked Midwest Coach to write, an account of the construction of an extremely accurate replacement frame for a stunning Stanley Model 64 and ongoing coverage of the complete restoration of the car, will not be completed or forwarded to the magazine admistration. My apologies to those members who voiced an interest in such an article, but hearing of the actions being taken with the magazine and Basil's original July resignation statement have made the decision for me.
I am in agreement with those here who believe that something is seriously wrong within the club, resulting in the loss of a true gentleman and consummate leader.
It is as if a great organization is suddenly gone. Basil, Marilyn, well done, and your style of quality leadership will be difficult if not impossible to replace.
