  1. Happy Anniversary

    H all,

    Andrew (Ridgeline) just reminded me that it is the anniversary of this site!

    CONGRATULATIONS! For making it to 10 years!

    I just want to thank all the folks who have contributed to creating this site, are working behind the scenes to make it run smoothly and all y'all for being so welcoming, friendly and helpful.

  5. Good read for your young railroad enthusiast - "On The Blue Comet"

    I have an affinity for the Central Railroad of NJ (CNJ) and the luxury special - The Blue Comet. I picked up a copy of a book by Rosemary wells called "On The Blue Comet" that would be a great read for a young train enthusiast. Probably good for about an 8-12 year old depending on reading level. Or a good read aloud to the younger ones.
    Mixes a bit of history, physics, science fiction, the Depression, modelling and running early Lionel trains.... including the Blue Comet. Always ...
