I will be buying one right away!
Where can I purchase a copy when it becomes available?
Good news at last. Will they be for sale at the KC convention??
I suppose they will be available if some vendor who is big into books brings them. I myself do not sell books, but I would guess with the NMRA meet being in Kansas City, some dealer will figure out that it would be a good venue.
Can’t wait to see this.
I have ordered it from Ron's Books (www.ronsbooks.com) for August 1st at a price of $48.75.
Check with Perry's Hobbies in Minnesota. 800-433-1264. Good service, small discount that pretty much covers the shipping. I have no connection with Perry's, just a satisfied customer. I've probably bought a dozen books from Perry's.
Will this book be mostly Mandarin and white or will there be some black and yellow? Any Racehorces/Redbirds? Passenger cars?
Thanks, Tom G.
FIRST, when I saw that this post was uploaded at 1:53 in the morning, I knew it came from you, Tom. When do you sleep?
SECOND, this is a motive power book, so every class of locomotive that arrived on the roster prior to 1964 or so will have both B&Y and, if they lasted long enough, O&W. That includes the passenger units.
THIRD, I am not a fan of roster shots, so most of the images are of trains out on the road unless I absolutely couldn't find anything else. That was mostly the case with the "critters" and other small units where there were only one or two on the roster altogether. Remember, except for a few photos, almost everything in this book came from the archive, which was the whole point of me becoming the archivist in the first place. The difference is that now there is much more complete caption information so readers will have a better idea of what they are looking at.
Very much looking forward to your new book. Thanks for all your hard work!
Thanks for the info. As for my hours, I worked at the Post Office for 39 years mostly on night shifts and my "biological clock" is backward from most people. I usually sleep days and stay up late at nights.
This is what it looks like (available August 1).
I like it Greg, looks good.
Greg - I very much look forward to getting a copy. I assume the usual outlets will have them?
Don't know why not.
This should shoot right to the top on the New York Times.
