The March-April 2018 issue of Canadian Railway Modeller magazine arrived this week. It includes a review of Trackside with VIA - Research and Recollections. Though it's been a year since my latest book was released, it takes time for a review to percolate through the writing, editing and publication steps and schedules.
In a letter-to-the-editor reply, the editor writes, "...it is amazing that we are still able to put out a print copy magazine."In this day and age of social media. I share his amazement that VIAphiles and rail enthusiasts of all stripes are interested in books printed on actual paper. Well, when you do research, such as paint schemes, refurbishing dates and wraps, it sits quite nicely on the shelf in book form. Ready for when you need it.
To those who may read this review and heed its clarion call to learn more about VIA, I say, "All aboard! En voiture!" and most importantly, welcome aboard.
Thanks to CRM editor Morgan Turney and reviewer Russell Morgan.
