By chance have you gone to the Countryside, IL Half Price Books? I saw that album for sale (and I do mean 'album', a LP).
I remember that you said that you were in the Chicago area.

That's actually not true.

He had nothing to do with it and the set in question (pictured above, in mint-condition in the ultimate APT livery) was given directly to them by BR. Also, by accounts, Pete Waterman is a fucking douche.

2-2 being called "first class" on a European width train would be a little tight no?
I'd pitch the E5 and its Gran Class if it wasn't a literal dildo externally. 2-1 on a wide body train. Also, the windows in the Green Car are about the same size as standard class and too high, which is kind of off putting for those who didn't fork out double the Green Car fare.

If one happens to be a natural born fucking douche, record producer is a viable career path--indeed, one's innate douchiness can be a valuable asset. So it's not an issue if Pete Waterman is a fucking douche by human standards, but if he's a fucking douche by record producer standards.

Who are your favorite railroad historians?

I have a few:

-David Myrick for his extensive coverage of Nevada and Arizona railroads in particular

-John Signor for his Southern Pacific books

-George W. Hilton for his Interurban and Narrow Gauge books

-Donald B. Robertson for his excellent 4-volume "Encyclopedia of Western Railroad history"

Obviously my focus is on the Western US but I'd love to hear other people's input on other authors and regions.

John A. Rehor's The Nickel Plate Story is still the best railroad history ever written, period. Even if you have no particular interest in the NKP, it's a must-read just for the way he seamlessly blends all the diverse elements into a gripping good read, from politics and finance to (nearly) complete specifications of every piece of rolling stock they ever owned. The gold standard of railroad histories.
