Typos in the new edition

This thread is for the documentation and feedback for the PDF version of Horror on the Orient Express that was just released to Kickstarter Backers.
If you find errors or issues, then post them here so Mike Mason and his team can correct them before the books go to print!

In the Campaign book PDF, I spotted a couple of typos:

PDF page 9: survial - should be survival
p. 10: alfa romero - should be Alfa Romeo

On p. 9 I also wondered if the era names should be capitalized - Gaslight, Invictus and so forth?

In Book II. Through the Alps, on page 126. Mrs. Cavollaro's name is misspelled under her picture. Cavallaro is wrong, Cavollaro is correct.

Assuming that the Traveler's Companion is supposed to have been written by a British author, it should use British English e.g. traveller with two l's.

You could make the same point about some of the handouts, e.g. London Handout #2 on p. 14 of Book II. A UK newspaper would say 'neighbouring', not 'neighboring'.

Book 2, p. 107 (map): 'de', 'du', 'des' in French take a small 'd', so Gare du Nord, for example, not 'Gare Du Nord'.

Book 2 Front page Through (not Trough) the Alps.
Book 3 pages 2 through 6 have a header saying "THROUGH THE ALPS" rather than "ITALY & BEYOND" as it does from page 8 onwards.
Book 1 page 8 second to last paragraph "Steff worthington deserves.." Worthington should start with capital.
