2016 NTRAK N Scale Steam Book

I am happy to announce that the 2016 NTRAK Steam Annual has arrived from the printers and is now shipping.

http://ntrak.org/Steam2016/index.html

You'll notice lots of familiar names in there, and the books editors included our own @mmagliaro and myself, who assembled the wonderful articles into a book that looked deserving of the content.

They're on sale now for $28, and I'd like to think worth every penny.

The Chapter where Russell Straw builds a N&W M-class Twelve Wheeler ("Mollie" in N&W parlance) is worth the price of the whole book... guess what I will be buying next Tuesday... B )

Ed, web page re-imagining is beautiful and the cover looks great!  VERY professional and crisp.

Kudos to the Ntrak team for enlisting both you and Max!

Ordered and I plugged it on the Yahoo N-Scale mail list.

I'm guessing from the web page design for it that Ed had a hand since it differs dramatically from the rest of the NTrak site.  It looks great!  8)

I have indeed. I put the site together because I wanted something to do it justice.

And just wait, NTRAK.org is getting a facelift soon too...

I'm probably my own worst critic but I really need to go back and fix that smokebox "blob" of Neolube. Ugh.
Also fun fact, that was shot with an iPhone 5 using Camera+ in macro mode.
