On the cover: On a beautiful spring morning in the year 1962, “Train World” has a brand new commercial enterprise, and the locals could not be happier about it! The parent holding group of the “Allstate Machine Parts Company” spent many months researching for the perfect location for their new manufacturing facility. They found the combination of easy rail access, mild year-round weather, good road access, a very accommodating local government (and tons of favorable tax considerations), and most importantly: A very willing workforce. This new facility is sure to bring a multitude of good-paying jobs and prosperity to the entire region. By Dennis Murphy.
