Trains were limited in their ability to climb steep hills, as the wheel's grip on the tracks would spin as the ascent became too steep. That is, until Sylvester Marsh decided to build a "railway to the moon". At least that's what the councilmen titled his proposal, claiming it was so crazy to think a train could climb Mount Washington, they said he might as well build a railway to the moon. The train did make it to the top of Mount Washington. Oh, that silly idea about going to the moon? That too.

In a move to replace the Bevil Newsletter, the issue's article is now an integral part of the certificate.   Sleeved, the certificate appears as before, though when removed and unfolded, the full-color 2-sided certificate displays the article with photos.
