Ian Wilson's Steam series

     If there's one thing a model railroader can never have enough of, that's NOT rolling stock or locomotives - it's reference material. Books, time tables, car drawings, blue prints, or even Car Control Manuals. What ever helps shed light on your modelling subject.

     So with that in mind, I was excited to get something from Canada Post today. My Ian Wilson collection has arrived. Ian some times contributes to a yahoo group I belong to, and he had mentioned a couple weeks ago that his books were on sale for something like half price. I had to have them.

     Published by Canadian Branchline Miniatures, they're full of crisp black and white photos, track maps, and timetables from southern Ontario. I've got to tell you these are the most beautiful books I've ever purchased on the CNR, and I'll be looking for the other four in his collection later today. Hell, even some of  the included track maps would make for some really great shelf switching layouts. Do yourself a favor and head on over to the Canadian Branchline Miniatures eBay Store and pick a couple up. You can't possibly be disappointed.
