Thankyou kindly for your salutations my Lord, it is an honour to receive such personal greetings from such an esteemed Dieselpunk veteran yourself.

I must thank you in turn for your own boundless research efforts. Your collection of images and sources on your blog has never ceased to fill me with wonder and give much inspiration for my comrades and I.
