|By a very tortuous and roundabout route, I
found myself preparing a couple of articles for a major US
rail magazine. They were both finalised ready for printing
when disaster! - the editor was replaced. The new team showed
no interest in either of the articles but after getting in
touch with Chris Walters at Railway Digest, he happily took
one of them with a bit of "de-yankifying" for a more
knowledgeable local audience. The first article continues to
languish on my PC here at home.
After that experience I discovered I really enjoyed article writing and several have since followed, with several more kicking around in my head and which may eventually see the light of day.
In the meantime Chris has kindly agreed to let me make available the articles here after a suitable period has elapsed after publication in Railway Digest. Thanks Chris! - and thanks for encouraging me to keep writing, for better or worse.
