March issue of TRAINS and Railfan & Railroad magazines 2

Now that they’ve started to hit subscribers’ mailboxes, I figured a note here was in order.  I’ve got two articles appearing in the March 2012 issues of the two largest railroad magazines.  First is a short piece and a photo in TRAINS as a part of their Funky Freights feature about some of the shipments the Providence & Worcester makes to Electric Boat in Groton.  And second is my Valley Railroad article featuring the rebuilding of No. 3025 which appears in Railfan & Railroad.  But in addition to the article – which ended up spanning 8 pages in the final layout of the magazine – I landed the front cover!  Third magazine cover overall for me (Railpace and Railroad Explorer were the other two), but this was my first time on R&R’s cover!  So if you don’t subscribe, head down to your local hobby shop or bookstore/newsstand and pick up a copy.  Feel free to let me know what you think of the two articles here, or drop me an email.

And stay tuned for a photo-heavy post from the NECR/PW/CN office car special that ran between St. Albans, VT and Worcester, MA on February 7, 2012.

    For me, your slide show presentation, June 2nd at the NE Proto Meet was a highlight of the show. Thank you for documenting the story of #3025’s re-birth.
