Long-time IRM member Ray Bellock has recently published a Christmas story book, entitled Amy Loved Weekends, and gave us a chance to preview it. It's a heartwarming story with a railroad background.
The illustrations are by a student at Crystal Lake High School. The story itself is rather detailed and suitable for older children and younger teens, I suppose. You do not have to be a railfan to appreciate the book, and it would make a wonderful present for the holiday season.
Here's a link to the website where you can order copies.
