SRC will be hosting a The Strasburg Rail Road in Color book signing with co-authors Kurt Bell and Jeremy Plant on Saturday, June 13, from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The signing will take place under the awning outside the Gift Shop nearest to the Station. Books will be available for sale in the shop or books can be pre-purchased by calling 717-687-7686 x141.

This is probably the most extensive work ever published on the Strasburg Rail Road. A word about the book from Kurt: Other than The Road to Paradise there has not been anything else written to the extent that this book has. Don Hallock did a nice survey of the railroad that was in the Lancaster County Historical Society in 1965 but it did not address the current company's operations at that time.

Just got and leafed through my copy. 128 pages with photos on nearly every page, virtually all from the modern era are in color, and reproduced with good quality.
