I’ve just published the story of Canada Atlantic Number 10, my first scratchbuilt locomotive on Blurb. This is a compilation of progress emails I sent to a couple of email lists over the course of four years as I was completing the model. I got my own copy, and I must say, I quite like having this memento of the construction process. While the web page is always good for shock factor when someone starts to ask me about my hobby, there is something about seeing your words and photos in print that makes you feel accomplished.
I’m going to bring the locomotive and the book with me to Sacremento next week, and if you’re there, you’ll find them in either the big display or in the RPM room. More likely it will be the latter, where you’ll also find me on Wednesday and Thursday and whatever part of Friday I spend there instead of at the train show.
