It's not like I really needed another book. My railroad library consists of about 60 books right now. But, I've been accumulating over some 40+ years. Just don't tell the wife I ordered another.
That's nothing! While I only have around 20-30 RR books, my US numismatic literature collection is so dang big, I need a storage unit to hold it all right now.
The thing with the RR books, is the cost. Most of the really good books are close to $100 or more it seems. My last two I found for steal, but I had to wait over a year of searching and hunting for the bargains.
My most wanted RR book at the moment, is going to be a tough one to find affordable and in the quality I'm willing to settle for; "The Shay Locomotive: Titan of timber" by Michael Koch!
