In case you missed it - now taking orders for Steam at Washago!

December 04, 2015

Shortly past midnight last night, we opened up pre-publication orders, at a special price, for Steam at Washago.

If you haven’t yet placed your order, the link is here:
The special price of $14.95 is only for five days. It expires 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, December 8. After that, the price will be $19.95 and available quantities will be scarce.
If you understand the everyday workings of the steam era in North America, and would jump at a chance to visit a Canadian National junction in Ontario on October 18, 1952—then navigate to the link and take the journey!
While you’re at it, both Steam at Allandale and Steam Scenes of Allandale cover Washago as well, along with the greater railway network of the Allandale Division circa 1954.
Steam Memories of Lindsay chronicles the Midland Subdivision—and more—which intersects the Allandale Division just south of Washago at Atherley Junction.
Farther to the south of Allandale, Steam Echoes of Hamilton takes you to a mix of mainline, industrial and branchline railway action.
And if you have any young readers in your family—say in the 8 to 14 age range—then consider The Secret of the Old Swing Bridge. It is also set in Washago and deals with a Second World War mystery tied to both the CNR and CPR in the area.
We are only printing sufficient copies of Steam at Washago to cover orders placed in the next five days. So, buy that extra copy while you have the chance.
We anticipate taking delivery of Steam at Washago on Wednesday, December 9. On that day, we will begin shipping copies in the order that purchases were received.
Once again, the order link for Steam at Washago (and all the other railway books still in print) is:
Thanks and best regards,

P.S. Thank you to the many who have shared already shared this news with fellow steam railway enthusiasts. At the end of the five-day offer, the price goes up and readers will have to scrounge for any extras our printer may have provided. So please forward this post among your circles.
