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.
