    FYI: Doc's Caboose (as of today the 18th) in K.C. has a few copies if the TRRA issue devoted to the Meteor if you're interested. It is a very well done issue. Larry F.

    I second Larry's post, the TRRA Meteor "book-a-zine" is indeed well done. Get A copy while you still can! Also if you can still manage to scrounge a copy of the TRRA's Texas Special issue, grab it too! Both those issues are LOADED with photos, diagrams and info!

    I ordered one and when it arrived, my wife wrapped it up and put it under the tree. Kind of gives new meaning to, "buying your own presents."

    Wow, Charlie! What a woman to get you exactly what you wanted for Christmas. We should all be that lucky!

    That's the trouble of it, my wife wraps up anything I get for my layout and I don't get it until Christmas,

    I'm in the same boat if I ship anything to the house. If she sees my name on it she will ask if I am expecting something for a decoder installation. Otherwise things received between Thanksgiving and Christmas get wrapped. I just lost a group of sample trees that arrived today.

    Regarding the TRRA H&TS Meteor issue, order one now if you want one. Larry printed 1200 copies, the same number as he printed for the Texas Special issue a few years ago. The "TS" issue sold very well and was out of stock relatively quickly. The Meteor issue will do the same, so don't wait too long.

    My Meteor copy is also under the tree. Makes me feel better to know that I am not alone in the "buy myself my own Christmas presents". My Athearn genesis GP40 is also under the tree. I did get to see the engine before it went down under, but the book is still in its shipping wrap.

    Don't delay in ordering your TRRA Meteor issue book-a-zine! It's as good as it gets when it comes to Frisco information! Supp!ies won't last long!

    Nice book, but author Larry Thomas should have saved a lot of unrelated material for his LARGE DEPARTMENT STORES book. It must be another of his hobbies.

    I finally finished reading through my copy of this.

    What I found most interesting was a detail in the description of the terminals at St. Louis, Tulsa, and OKC. I never realized just how short the passenger platforms actually were. The longest ones were only about 1500 feet, which is less than 10 real feet when you model in N-scale.
