    As might be inferred from the presentation, the collection is most of the Time Museum Collection assembled by Seth Atwood. It is now permanently housed at the Chicago MSI. I am impressed that they got it on display so quickly.

    When it was in Rockford, I visited it on nearly every trip I made to the Chicago area. I hope to get back to Chicago in the next couple of months to see it again and see how the current display stacks up with Rockford.

    The Railroad Timekeeping Symposium was held at the Museum in Rockford while it was still open.

    Two of the McIntyre Watches are also in the collection.
