A full page ad for the books is on the back of the cover of the Winter Classic Trains issue just out. Volume 1 includes a chapter on handling perishables, including ice house operations, Fruit Growers Express facilities. Vol 1 is 784 pages covering 1880 to 1920 and Vol 2 is 816 pages to the closing of the yard.

Has anyone seen the books and can comment on their contents?
I bought Volume Two a couple of weeks ago...I'm still perusing it but thus far it seems to have an awful lot of info taken from the company magazine.
