Great Buys On RR Books

Postby CNJ Fan 4evr » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:45 pm

I shouldn't tip my hand here but I want to let you folks know,if you haven't done so already, to check out Amazon for some great old RR books. In the past few months I have added many older ,out of print books to my library. Most were gotten way cheaper than I ever expected. Examples: Railroads Of New Jersey -1975 $19.99, Carelton's Erie Lackawanna Story-Updated 1978- $9.99, Carelton's original Jersey Central Story 1976-$29.99, The unique New York & Long Branch-1985-$19.99. I got all the Pennisi booklets from $7.00-$15.00 each. Don Ball books for only $3.00 each. I also found a rare Quadrant Press Jersey Central booklet for only $7.00. I have never seen this one before. Don't get scared by the gradings. I have purchased books graded acceptable and good and they were in better shape than described.Particularly the New Jersey Railroads book. That was listed as good and when I open package the book was like brand new. In fact, I don't know if it had ever been opened at all before. The pages were crisp and new. Happy shopping.

Considering that many offerings on Amazon (and eBay for that matter) at at prices I would consider to be, let's say, extremely optimistic (or, let's say, "LOL"), I find this to be refreshing.

I have most of those books but appreciate the heads up.

This is my first post since joining RAILROAD.NET and wasn't sure where to put it. I wanted to tell rail fans about a book (fiction novel) I wrote that's now out at Amazon: Southern Passage. It's set in the South (Texarkana and Shreveport) in the mid 1960s and tells the story of am eighteen-year-old recent high school graduate from St. Louis spending the summer months working as a switchman for Missouri Pacific RR. Thanks. Jim Yonker
