While not entirely EMD, Mr. Cook will be presenting his program Selling the Diesel at the June 19th meeting of the Amherst (MA) Railway Society. The program is free and open to all. http://www.amherstrail.org/meeting2007.06.html

I just wanted to add to this string my thanks to Larry DeYoung for the really nice introduction comments he did for both showings of INSIDE EMD at the NMRA National convention on last Sunday, July 22 in Detroit, and to the National Model Railroad Association for hosting these showings.

Again, my thanks to all the groups that hosted the Inside EMD program during the five years it was shown.

Inside EMD

Postby PCook » Sun Nov 19, 2017 10:35 pm

It has been almost ten years since INSIDE EMD was retired. In five years of constant travel it accumulated over 100 showings, and was presented at many meetings of railroad historical groups, special events at museums, the NMRA National Convention (several showings), guest speaker events at libraries, community centers, and a couple of churches, and was shown to the management teams at several railroads and marine towing companies.

For 2018, the plant tour portion of the program has been re-written as a series of articles which will be published in the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society's magazine RAILROAD HISTORY, starting with issue #218 and extending through issues #219, #220, and possibly #221. Persons who join R&LHS in January or February 2018 should be on the membership list in time to receive issue #218.

I seldom do any public speaking any more, and there are presently no plans to bring this program back for more showings. I prefer to spend my hobby time now on writing print articles.
