This post will serve as the place to download pdf files of TATA and TCA newsletters. I have completed links to the first 24 TATA Legend newsletters, and plan to add a list of features within each newsletter as I can. This project will probably take a while to complete. I've decided to post the newsletters in blocks of 24 or so, in case a thread corruption issue should occur...Then I will have less content loss, and be able to recover it more quickly.

Thanks for taking on this project. It will be a wealth of information and will certainly get some foot traffic.  It was great to read the first few years and see what we looked like more than 10 years ago.
