I just received the new TCA Quarterly in the mail. It's probably one of the best Quarterly's I have ever seen. It celebrates 100 years of standard gauge. Just the pictures alone make it worth the time and effort to join the Train Collectors Association.
I can't/won't post any of them here. Frankly I don't want to ruin it for the folks that haven't got their hands on the Quarterly yet. The calibre of the writing from John Desantis is outstanding. It's almost the kind of thing I would have hoped CTT did but that didn't happen. CTT's homage to 100 years of standard gauge was weak at best.
The TCA's is quite strong and the other articles and information in the Q are equally interesting. The only thing I would have really liked to have seen covered was what the next 100 years will hold. I like seeing what people want or think should be there, especially as the torch gets passed to another generation.
