Book Update

I mailed the manuscript to the publishers two weeks ago and they now have it.  I do not have an estimate on the publishing date, but I suspect it will be sometime in 2014. 

At the left is a mock-up of the cover. This is not final. The designers and marketing people will come up with a cover design that they feel is best. I will use this cover as a marketing tool until we have a final cover.

The book has 2 chapters out of 9 devoted to Civil War railroads.

Thanks again to all of you that helped with this project. The  bottom image on the cover mock-up shows a train on a bridge on Charlie Taylor's O scale layout.


  1. I look forward to the book signing party!!!!
